On March 17, 2017, the Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society invites the public to join us for a dinner and celebration in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. This annual event is one of the most popular tavern nights held at the museum and includes a traditional dinner, drinks, and live entertainment.

Guests will enjoy a delicious meal featuring homemade Guinness Steak Pie from a secret family recipe. Sorry, grandma does not let us share the ingredients! Dinner will also include green beans, pickled beets, apple pandowdy, and Irish soda bread.

The museum is pleased to have returning for a second year dancers from the Coogan School of Irish Dance to entertain with traditional Irish dances. “We are thrilled to return” states Tara Deveney, T.C.R.G., one of the school’s instructors. Tara notes that “many of the dancers are from West Hartford and are delighted to perform in a place they have grown up visiting and learning about.”

The event will also feature live music by Geoff Kaufman. Geoff will bring his rich tenor voice and experience in leading audiences to find truth, humor, and beauty in folk music. At the end of the evening, guests will be invited to play historic tavern games such as Skittles, Captain’s Mistress, and Shove Ha’penny in the lantern-lit circa 1748 birthplace of Noah Webster.

Tickets for the event are on sale now at noahwebster.yapsody.com for $40 per person for the general public and $35 for museum members. The price includes dinner, two complimentary drinks (beer or wine), live entertainment, and tavern games. Additional beer and wine will be available for purchase.

The museum would like to thank the Greater Hartford Arts Council and the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving for their continued support.
