Irish pubs Lincoln’s celebrate St. Patrick’s Day
LINCOLN, Nebraska (Nebraska) – Every year on March 17, Irish pubs around the world celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, the busiest day of the year.
There are two Irish pubs in Lincoln, McKinney’s and Patty’s Pub, where both places go all out on St. Patrick’s Day.
With a line waiting outside the door, Patty’s opened at 11am on Friday and quickly went to the waiting list shortly after opening, which is what Voboril expects every year.
“We make 2,000 pounds of corned beef with potatoes, cabbage, carrots and rye bread that comes with it,” said Casey Woboril, manager of Patty’s Pub.
McKinney’s is located in the heart of the Haymarket area of downtown Lincoln and is used to Nebraska’s bustling gaming days, but they don’t come close in sales to the March 17th holiday.
“Honestly, this means a lot to us, this is our biggest day of the year,” said Shelby Herman, McKinney’s CEO. “We joke that this is our rainy day fund, from where we get our money from this day forward.”
With both venues staying open until 2am Saturday, there’s still plenty of time for you to showcase your green and Irish heritage, or lack of it.
