head to greenhouse tavern tomorrow

St. Patty’s Day is, of course, tomorrow. It’s going to be a warm and sunny 60 degrees outside and the streets will no doubt be packed with families, drunks and plenty of people playing hookey. It’s been a good five years since I’ve retired from participating in the downtown March madness, but if I was heading down, I’d surely skip the parade and overcrowded bars in favor of The Greenhouse Tavern’s street fare.

Tomorrow, starting at 7 a.m., chef Sawyer will be making duck fat fries, featuring power ketchup, housemade beer vinegar, and just for St. Patty’s Day, a green aioli.

While I don’t miss the post St. Patty’s recovery period and am more than content with my fuzzy memories of many happy years celebrating my faux Irish downtown, I do miss getting my annual corned beef sandwich at Slyman’s and will definitely miss out on this Greenhouse sneak peak. Thankfully, they are still slated to open on April 1 so I won’t have to wait much longer.

    We just had these – per your suggestion. They were wonderful! It was crazy crowded – and beautiful out…I’ve never wanted a beer more!

    Damn work
