O'Dell's Irish Pub & Ale House owners recently applied for a permit to host a special event this weekend for St. Patrick's Day. Themed activities for Saturday and Sunday include:
- A beer garden from 11 a.m. to 1:30 a.m. each day
- Killian's Irish Bagpipe Women sometime on Saturday
- Pot 'O Gold contest with six participating Eureka merchants, through which customers get cards stamped at each locale with one person eventually winning $500 worth of gift certificates and prizes
- Irish food
- Green contest for customers to wear "as much green bling" as they can
O'Dell's is located at 141 S Central Ave. in Eureka. Tina O'Dell said they will have a huge tent with heaters and seating for the beer garden.
The pub has the following Irish beers on-draft: Guinness, Harp and Killian's Irish Red. Tara O'Dell said a full bar will be available outside under the tent, with beers in aluminum cans and Irish whiskeys, as well as limited Irish foods, such as Reuben sliders.
Tara said musician Jess Dawkins will perform outdoors from 3-6 p.m. Saturday. She said The Bennett-Rankins Band will play from 6:30-9:30 p.m. On Sunday, an Irish deejay with themed, lighted projections will entertain revelers from 2-6 p.m.
