H St. Patty's Day!
Last night we also found luck on H Street Corridor at Star & Shamrock's St. Patty's Day celebration. We snapped 9:30 Club's Jess Scheer, FERC's Evan Oxhorn, Musolino & Dessel's Clara Mora, and congressional staffer Larry Calhoun.
Wearing green, everyone toasted to St. Pat, beautiful weather, and the NCAA. Here, new DC resident Morgan Gottwald, ICE's Sophie O'Neil, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace's Chris Grider, DC gov's Niranjan Murali, Columbia Lighthouse For the Blind's Jessica Doyle, Trust for America's Health's Kevin McIntyre, and Erin Sheridan.
Star & Shamrock is an Irish-Jewish themed tavern that spares no effort when it comes to holiday fun. The St. Paddy's Party overlaps their March Madness madness and will be followed by their Purim Simcha, "the Jewish St. Patrick's Day." The tavern's owners, Mark Menard, Jason Feldman and Mike Schuster, bookend P.J. Clarke's Dan Gardner.
Specials included corned beef and cabbage, Irish bangers, and Colcannon Knish with Irish mule punch and Irish drafts. Here, Lynette Fortenberry, Department of Public Works' Susan Burnette, and Smithsonian's Corey Wright.
Fresh from their annual White House St. Patrick’s Day performance, we heard Celtic tunes from the MollyHawks' Teri and Kenny Wolin joined by Irish Flute master Chris McFarlane...
After, we hopped next door to Rock N Roll Hotel to find a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. J Roddy Walston & the Business performed a sold-out show that absolutely ShamRocked.
