St. Patrick's Day in Santa Fe

After briefly contemplating the idea of serving green pancakes at The Hacienda Nicholas Bed & Breakfast Inn on St. Patrick's Day, I decided they would look to unappetizing for an early morning meal.  Nonetheless, all ye lads and lassies looking for a St. Pattie's Day celebration in Santa Fe can head over to the Zia Diner for a taste of the Irish.  On March 17th The Zia will be serving a full Irish menu:  Corned Beef and Cabbage, Mussels in Ale Guinness Stew; Colcannon Potatoes, Irish Soda Bread, Baileys Cheesecake and Guinness Chocolate Cake.  To wash down this traditional fare,  choose between Guinness on draft, an adults-only Irish Coffee Milkshake or straight up Irish Coffee.

A St. Patrick's Day celebration would not be complete without lively music.  As you eat, drink and get merry, you will be regaled by the Railyard Reunion Bluegrass Band, playing from 5pm on.  Not exactly the real deal in terms of traditional Irish music, but after a few brews, perhaps it won't matter...or you won't even notice.
