Arby’s offers St. Patrick’s Day deal, Irish cooking class and more holiday happenings

imagesYou can look all day

for a lucky clover leaf

or celebrate St. Patrick’s day

with juicy corned beef

This is the slogan that greets you on the Arby’s website as does its festive (but temporary) name O’RB’s. Today through Sunday, Arby’s is offering a buy-one-get-one coupon for its Reuben sandwich made with corned beef, swiss, sauerkraut and Thousand Island dressing on marble rye.

Or, instead, you might just learn to make your own corned beef with a St. Patrick’s Day Celebration class at The Cook’s Warehouse in East Cobb. During the class, you’ll prepare:

  • Poached Oysters with Guinness Sauce on Boxty (Irish potato pancakes)
  • Warm Corned Beef and Cabbage Salad on Bitter Greens
  • Irish Whisky Cake with Apple Cream Sauce

6:30 – 9:30 p.m. Mar. 17, $65.

Here are some additional places to celebrate:

Fado Irish Pub

It starts early at Fado, where the doors will open at 7 a.m. for a traditional Irish breakfast and rugby viewing. The day’s festivities include beer tents, Irish dancers and live music, continuing until 3 a.m. Tickets $10 online/$15 at the door. 273 Buckhead Ave., Atlanta.

P’cheen

P’cheen will be serving pints of Guinness and Harp with classic Irish fare including Guinness lamb stew, fish ‘n chips, corned beef and cabbage, leek soup and shepherd’s pie. 4 p.m. – 3 a.m. 701 Highland Ave. N.E., Atlanta.

Chateau Elan

Paddy’s Irish Pub on property at Chateau Elan will host a celebration in a pavillion-turned-Irish-beer-hall complete with a buffet of Irish favorites. 11 a.m. – midnight. 100 Tour de France, Braselton.

Went to Mick Hook’s Irish Cooking Class once at his Tavern in Bellfountaine, Ohio.. It lasted exactly 12 min. After that he had nothing left to offer but he covered all that could be considered good Irish cooking. had he gone 15 min he would have been repeating himself. it does not take long to go over Bangers & Mash, Irish Soda Bread and Corned Beef and Cabbage.

When public intoxication is your country’s social claim to fame, cooking is not a big deal to us. We must live with the fact that St. Patrick was a frenchman. now that is what is hard to swallow

“We must live with the fact that St. Patrick was a frenchman. now that is what is hard to swallow”

I thought he was kidnapped from Britain to Ireland as a slave. Learn your history.
