Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day event in Tampa

Tampa Bay residents are invited to a Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day gathering on Tuesday, September 17 at Molly Malone’s Irish Pub & Restaurant on Davis Island. Just look for the logo of the “tart with the cart.”

The evening will celebrate this year’s first annual “St. Patrick’s Army” food collection, which helped feed a few thousand of Tampa’s hungry through the Salvation Army. Green “St. Patrick’s Army” t-shirts will be given out to everyone who comes, and we will welcome any willing and able volunteers to support the March 2014 collection, themed “St. Patrick’s Army: Nobody Goes Hungry.”


Our good friend Tim McDonnell, who created and organized the food drive, is hosting the event. Molly Malone’s will provide light h’ors d’oeuvres and traditional Irish music by local musicians. Of course pints will be available for purchase and the craic will be mighty. The gathering will run from 6-8ish, but feel free to come when you can and stay ’til you like.
