Murder Mystery: Bad Luck of the Irish at the Irish Wake 

Welcome friends, family, and acquaintances of Patrick O’Reilly. Sadly, our beloved Patrick suddenly and unexpectedly passed away very recently. But in true Irish fashion, this is not to be a somber occasion but rather, a party to celebrate his life! Those who knew him well, would know that the only thing bigger than Patrick’s heart was his sense of humor and the pint in his hand. So, let’s celebrate Patrick’s memory and accomplishments! But beware, a lot of blarney is going about and before the end of the night, more than just green beer will be spilled!

Gates and doors open at 5:30pm for Cocktails and Mingling; the 6:30 dinner will include Pot Roast, Potatoes, Green beans, Salad, Rolls, Dessert, Cash Bar; Show should end around 8:30-9pm
