St. Patty's Day at McLoughlin's
It’s hard to believe that St Patty’s Day is this weekend. If you are looking for something fun to do, head over to Riverfront Park’s favorite Irish Pub. McLoughlin’s has events all weekend long. They’ve expanded their restaurant by 2.5 times and the party is getting bigger too. Starting tonight at 6:45, the Martin Percival School of Irish Dance will be performing. On Saturday starting at 1:00 PM, come by to see Irish Bands, Bagpipes and more Irish Dancing. Festivities will go late into the evening. McLoughlin’s will do it all again on Sunday from 1:00-8:30. Happy St. Patty’s day and don’t forget to wear your green.
Coming Soon to RFP: Al Lado!
Ah, we can't wait! We've long loved Zengo, our neighborhood boîte by Richard Sandoval, and now Z is getting a little brother! Al Lado opens August 17th, and we've been crossing the days off of our calendars in anticipation.
Al Lado is more tapas-and-vino to Zengo's sushi-and-sake, but still with the same viewpoint; intense flavors, a mixing of cultures and a truly solid cocktail program. Al Lado is Latin American with a European sensibility, something we personally can't wait to see expressed. Dark woods & fabrics, communal seating and chalkboard menus complete the idea of warm-yet-chic.
Be sure to mark your calendars for the 17th, and plan on visiting often!
