Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Recognizing the “luck of the Irish” is pretty easy on this holiday, as we all rummage through our closets finding various shades of green, turquoise, and teal, in which you may argue are more green than blue, but the purpose remains the same, let’s not get pinched today. However, there are many ways in which someone might celebrate the patron Saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick. From clothing to traditional meals, music and storytelling, and even the ever so festive green beer, we all have a reason to enjoy this holiday. Kentucky Lake is no exception to the rule!
There are a few restaurants throughout Marshall County and Kentucky Lake highlighting the famous Irish Reuben sandwich, and we can say from experience that the Reuben at Ralph’s Harberview Grill does not disappoint! Other places in which to visit for an authentic Irish Meal would be J’s Steakhouse for corned beef and cabbage with boiled potatoes. Ponderosa of Kentucky Lake will feature corned beef, cabbage, and black-eyed peas on the buffet this evening. Harbor Light’s Restaurant also offers a Reuben sandwich on their menu all year round! For dessert, head over to Parcell’s Bakery this evening for Bailey’s Irish Cream cupcakes! Drink specials will vary at Ralph’s, J’s, Harbor Lights, and others, but Irish beer will certainly be on the menu, just beware, it may be green!
St. Patrick’s Day may be a yummy holiday, but it’s also a holiday for social gathering, the celebration of friends and family. So as you share a pint tonight, share a story too, give a hug, and remember today is blessed day. This old Irish Prayer just might says it best…
Take time to work, it is the price of success.
Take time to think, it is the source of power.
Take time to play, it is the secret of perpetual youth.
Take time to read, it is the foundation of wisdom.
Take time to be friendly, it is the road to happiness.
Take time to dream, it is hitching your wagon to a star.
Take time to love and be loved, it is the privilege of the gods.
Take time to look around, it is too short a day to be selfish.
Take time to laugh, it is the music of the soul.
