Tam O’Shanter, a member of the Lawry’s family of restaurants and one of the oldest restaurants in Los Angeles, is ready to host its epic St. Patrick’s Day party (on March 17, 2013, of course), which is one of the biggest Irish celebrations in Los Angeles. The restaurant will open at 10:00am, with a special tent area in the parking lot opening at 12:00pm, music firing up at 1:00pm, and the party going well into the night. On a day when people throughout L.A. will be green on the outside and inside, The Tam will be the best spot in town to show Irish pride with green beer, amazing pub food, and rocking music. This year’s massive line-up of entertainment will feature:
A blend of traditional Irish drinking songs and ballads from the likes of the Dubliners, Clancy Brothers, Wolftones, and The Pogues, as well as modern Irish stylings borrowed from the likes of Flogging Molly, Dropkick Murphys, Mahones, LeperKhanz, and The Mighty Regis.
An L.A.-based Celtic trad/rock quintet who share a passion for the working, fighting, and drinking songs of Ireland. Slugger concocts a lethal brew of foot-stomping classics, deft instrumentals, and a cappella killers.
Tam O’Shanter’s own house band!
Emerald Society Pipes & Drums, to herald the evening (usually around 4:30pm-5:00pm)
Formed in 1999, the Emerald Society Pipes & Drums band consists of members of the law enforcement community throughout Southern California as well as selected non-official personnel.
“St. Patty’s is one of the best celebrations throughout the year, and no one does it better in L.A. than The Tam,” says John Lindquist, General Manager of Tam O’Shanter. “Every year, this party takes Irish fun to new heights. And our line-up of bands and entertainment for this year, along with our revamped gourmet pub fare menu, will make St. Patty’s better than ever before!”
