UPDATED: When this was posted, we misunderstood Claddagh Cottage's post about their "Closing Party" to mean the pub would close after tonight. This is not the case. Claddagh Cottage remains open through Dec. 31. We regret the error.
Saturday night, the Claddagh Cottage Irish Pub throws a fundraiser party in the place they've lived for so many years on Curry Ford Road. In August, Claddagh owners Scott Vocca and Vicki Gish (who bought the pub this year from longtime owner Jimmy Mulvaney) found out the building would be torn down, to much dismay among discerning Guinness drinkers and Irish food lovers around town. The good news is that they're hoping to sign a lease for a space just a mile away, also on Curry Ford Road. The not-as-good news: no guarantees.
If you want to increase their chances of relocating, come out and support Saturday night, where you can contribute to their GoFundMe
and buy raffle tickets. There'll be live music from the Bronx Boys, the Cricketers Pub food truck will be on site, and the services of a glass engraver will be available for those who want to personalize their Guinness glasses. Fancy!
