St Patrick’s Day at the Beehive with Katie McD Band

Erin Go Beehive!!!!

Katie McD Band Live at the Beehive in Boston on St Patrick’s  St. Patrick’s Day at 8pm.

The Beehive in Boston, MA Partners with the Boston Irish Tourism Association for Authentic St. Patrick’s Day Dining & Entertainment!  On Monday, March 17th, 2014 The Beehive will present its 7th annual St. Patrick’s Day festivities from 5:00PM – 1:00AM in partnership with the Boston Irish Tourism Association (BITA). St. Patrick’s Day at The Beehive means an evening of authentic entertainment including a live performance from Boston-based Katie McD, Irish-inspired drinks, à la carte food specials from Executive Chef Marc Orfaly and an evening like The Beehive can create. The claim from inside the ‘hive’ is that while there will be plenty of surprises, this will not be your typical Irish fest. “No green beer…but what we are planning is a sophisticated evening of amazing Irish comfort food and authentic, world-class, Irish entertainment for a mature audience,” said Co-Owner, Jack Bardy. And “authentic” is the key word! The Beehive has landed the stamp of approval again for this year’s event from the Boston Irish Tourism Association. “We’ve been more than happy to get involved with The Beehive and their annual St. Patrick’s Day festivities, and we’re looking forward to the amazing food and festivities planned!” said Colette Quinlin, Managing Director of the Boston Irish Tourism Association. MUSIC: One of the many St. Patrick’s Day surprises at The Beehive will be a special performance from Katie McD. Originally from Galway, Ireland, Katie McD has quickly established herself as a major part of the Boston music scene. Her journey to America provided inspiration for interpretations of traditional Irish folk music as well as her original compositions. Her unique style interlaces luscious textures with ethereal vocals and thought-provoking lyrics that capture both imagination and heart. As a truly gifted troubadour, Katie weaves together intricate tales of the human experience that make her an Irish talent to be reckoned with. FOOD/DRINK: In addition to serving the regular menu Chef Marc Orfaly has created several à la carte specials including: Corned Beef & Cabbage Flatbread with Sauerkraut & Cheese, Finaan Haddie Smoked Fish & Chips with Malt Vinegar Aioli & Slaw and Grilled Lamb Chops with Colcannon Mashed Potatoes just to name a few. Dinner reservations are recommended.  No cover charge, and both the upstairs and downstairs bars will be open for service.
