O’BANNON’S is your place to “PADDY HARD” this St Patrick’s Day!
It's the talk of the town this time of year. O’Bannon’s St Patrick's Day Festival has grown into a household name in Aggieland. This year it falls on SUNDAY FUNDAY! So naturally, we are celebrating twice as hard and including Saturday too.
**If you haven’t heard, we are the 2nd highest volume seller of Guinness in TEXAS! We are nipping at the heels of #1 so we need your help to overtake the lead!
Here is the rundown:
We begin shutting down Boyett St at noon and setting up our 60ft tent. The pub opens at 2pm
SATURDAY, 16th: The pub opens at NOON
Crafty Pig will be here in the afternoon serving up delicious food (menu coming soon). Absolute CS Music / Locked 'N Loaded Ent. will be playing your favorite tunes and beer will be pouring.
Later that evening we have live music on the stage w/ Houston’s Flashback! This group plays all your favorite songs from a variety of genres of music.
We're pulling Perfect Pints of Guinness and your other favorites all day. At 3pm Blackwater Draw Brewing Co. will be at the pub. You can meet the brewer and try 2 special beers just for St Paddy’s Day; BWD’s ‘Eire-ish Nitro Stout’ & ‘Pot of Gold’ (yep! Mulligan w/ actual shiny glitter in it making it sparkle like gold).
*Limited SPD souvenier cups from BWD will be available
Everyone packs in the pub at midnight as we watch the count down clock hit 00:00:00:00! At exactly midnight we begin pouring GREEN BEER!
SUNDAY, 17th- If you like LIVE IRISH MUSIC, Great Guinness Relay, etc…then SUNDAY is your day. WE OPEN AT 10am and start pulling pints and spiking your coffee with Irish whiskey. Like mimosas? We will have complementary mimosas while supplies last. (This will help your hangover from Saturday’s shenanigans) Breakfast will be available beginning at 10am as well (eggs, ham, bangers, potatoes, baked beans).
**Being Sunday, TABC law dictates you MUST order food to get alcohol before 12pm
At 11am join us in our annual St. Patrick's Day morning TOAST to kick off the day! Be here for a pint, mimosa, or Irish coffee and let's enjoy the BEST celebration of the year!
At 1pm CRAFTY PIG will be serving their special Irish menu for the day. We are very excited to include these innovative grill slayers in our celebration!
We are the only place in town with LIVE Irish Music. And we’ve got it ALL DAY w/ Blaggards! These guys are regulars at the pub and bring you everything from The Pogues, to Johnny Cash, to Flogging Molly all w/ their own twist. We dare you to try and stay still while listen to these guys.
We also have events planned throughout the day. We don't know their schedule but we usually get frequent visits from Tullamore Dew, Jameson, or Bushmills.
What about beer? We've got all the green beer you can handle. We will not run out. Guinness? That's our #1 seller at the pub. We are known for it. We ring a bell every time it's served and our brand new shiny logo incorporates that bell. In fact, we're currently the #2 Guinness selling account in Texas! Guinness takes pride in their beer and how it's poured and we take pride in following that standard.
It gets better. After a full day of Blaggards, at midnight they ROCK the AGGIE WAR HYMN!
And finally, remember all those breweries and distilleries we mentioned would be on site? We have TONS of shirts, beads, shot glasses, hats and just about anything else you can think of to giveaway!
O'Bannon's has one of the BEST St Patrick's Day parties in TEXAS! We were even visited by the Guinness Book of World Records!
That's 30+ HOURS of the BIGGEST, BEST, MOST AUTHENTIC St Patrick's Day celebration in town! Please drink responsibly and make sure you designate a driver.
