The Beehive: St. Patrick's Day

The Beehive presents their second annual St. Patrick’s Day festivities on March 17 from 5pm-2am. The “Erin go beehive” event will include various forms of entertainment including: step dancers, musical acts, Irish inspired ala carte food & drink specials, and a party like only The Beehive can throw.

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 for this year’s event from the Boston Irish Tourism Association, lending their co-sponsorship and officially sanctioning the event. “We’ve been more than happy to get involved with The Beehive on its St. Patrick’s day festivities here in Boston and we’re looking forward to the amazing food and festivities planned!” said Michael Quinlin, President and founder of the Boston Irish Tourism Association.

One of the most exciting aspects of the event will be a special performance by Matt & Shannon Heaton presenting a virtual collage of vocals, Irish flute, guitar & bouzouki. The duet’s amalgam of traditional and neo-traditional Irish music has received critical acclaim including Shannon’s Female Musician of the Year Award by the Irish American News.

In addition to serving the regular Beehive menu, Chef Rebecca Newell has created several ala carte specials including Appetizers specials such as: Corned Beef & "Cabbage" Flatbread with Sauerkraut & Cheese ($12), Mussels in Irish Whiskey with Bacon, Garlic, Cream & Parsley ($14), Irish Pub Salad with Smoked Salmon, Cheddar, Butter Lettuce & Irish Brown Bread ($12), Entrée Specials such as: Beef, Guinness & Barley Stew with Guinness Battered Onion Rings ($20), Finaan Haddie Smoked Fish & Chips with Malt Vinegar Aioli & Slaw ($19), Grilled Lamb Chops with Colcannon Mashed Potatoes ($24), and dessert specials such as their Bailey's Cheesecake ($7).

There is no cover charge for this event. Reservations are recommended.
