Finnegan’s Wake 2016 St. Patrick’s Day tented event cancelled.

st-patricks-dayFinnegan’s Wake 2016 St. Patrick’s Day tented event cancelled.

They had looked forward to the 10th anniversary celebration for some time. However, to operate within the new policies and procedures the North Carolina ABC Commission has set forth, but regrettably they could not accomplish that goal.
Finnegan’s Wake are no longer permitted to sell beer, wine or spirits inside the tented celebration space along Trade Street or in the parking lot. They will seek way to comply with the ABC’s new policies so that they can bring back your favorite (and the Triad’s largest) St. Patrick’s Day celebration in the future.
This year, on March 17th, Finnegan’s Wake will open the pub at 7:00 am with a traditional Irish breakfast. During lunch they will feature authentic tunes from the Bedlam Boys. Late night, from 10:00 pm – 1:00 am, Bana will perform Irish music you can dance to. All with no cover charge.
