PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — With spring right around the corner, McGillin’s Old Ale House, at 1310 Drury Street in center city, is gearing up for St. Patrick’s Day, this Sunday.
“We’ll have green beer, we’ll have Irish food including our famous shepherd’s pie, corned beef and cabbage, Irish stew made with lamb,” says owner Chris Mullins Sr. (in top photo). “And green beer — oh, did I say that already? And of course our McGillin’s Ale and other kinds of great microbrews.”
And Mullins says he loves this holiday:
“It’s not just an Irish saint that we’re celebrating, although that’s enough to celebrate. It’s the whole idea of immigration, the melting pot, the beginning of spring!”
