For the past six years Mo’s Irish Pub St. Patty’s Day – 2 Day Bash has been a hit. So much that just last year its party grew large enough that they decided to turn it into a two-day event.
“This year is going to be better than ever,” Kyle Gobel, assistant general manager, said.
This will be Gobel’s second year working the event and he has many fond memories of last year.
“It’s really a big event. We have grown in size every year and I can’t wait to see what this year will bring,” he said.
The two-day event starts on March 15 with the inaugural Mo’s Shamroc5K run at 8:30 a.m. Proceeds will benefit Simon Youth Foundation and all are welcome to participate. Those interested in participating can register online at www.shamroc5k.com.
After the race the festivities continue with Mo’s traditional Kegs & Eggs breakfast featuring just what it sounds like – malt beverages and eggs. Festivities begin at 11:45 a.m. and continue all day with outside tents housing live music and drinks.
Wristbands are being pre-sold through March 14 for $15, which allows patrons to return Monday for more fun, or they can be acquired at the door for $10. Patrons must be 21 or older to enter the tents.
Several bands will make an appearance throughout both days to keep you dancing and having a great time. On March 15, the main band is RECOIL, which was voted the number one Best Rock Band in Indianapolis in NUVO’s 2013 “Best Indy People’s Choice Awards.” On March 17, the main band will be The Bishops, which brings the crowd to its feet with popular hits enjoyable for all ages.
Most importantly, it wouldn’t be St. Patrick’s Day without traditional Irish food. The menu will include made from scratch dishes like fish and chips, corn beef, and chicken and shrimp.
“I’m especially excited for the green beer, live music, and are customers out here having a good time,” Gobel said.
On March 17, all the fun moves inside to the spacious restaurant. Drinks, food, and live music will continue on St. Patrick’s Day.
“I have the best staff in Indiana. They are mostly excited to dress up for the events, and trust me, they go all out,” Gobel said.
