May the Promenade rise to meet you…or so the blessing goes. Cape May slowly awakens from her winter slumber on Saint Patrick’s weekend. Visitors begin to arrive with wearin o’ the green in most cases.
Uncle Bill’s reopens to feed the masses and Dublin born John Byrne returns to the Boiler Room at Congress Hall to provide some of the most authentic Irish Music in Cape May this weekend. What’s on tap here is another one of those Cape May weekends with so much to choose from it could drive you to drink green beer. The O’Tischler’s will make appearances at the Mad Batter and the Pilot House this weekend, no doubt playing “Whiskey in the Jar” and “Johnson’s Motor Car.”
It’s also Sherlock Holmes’ weekend sponsored by the Mid Atlantic Center for the Arts and Humanities. This provides a great relief for those detective fans who can’t get enough in the movies.
And while yes there is a threat of another snow event on St Patrick’s Day this Monday it will likely not snow green, but the traditional white stuff we have come to loathe this winter. There’s still availability around town, why not break out your shamrock dress and head down to Cape May and celebrate the Irish.
