St. Patrick's Day Weekend Celebration Benefiting Cystic Fibrosis

Two day event of music, food and fun featuring local musicians all raising funds for a worthy cause - the Atlnata Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Atlanta, GA, March 15, 2013 --( Seven big bands on outdoor stage highlights big St. Patrick's Day Weekend at Rosewell Tap

Event to benefit Georgia Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation

Great music featuring 7 bands on an outdoor stage. Irish beer flowing like a river. Corn beef and other Irish specialties available at every turn. Sound like the perfect stroll around Dublin?

Or, maybe more like a great place to spend the St. Patrick’s Day with good friends and family?

Well, actually, it’s a little bit of both, as the Roswell Tap and the Cystic Fibrosis community get ready to kick off North Atlanta’s biggest and best St Patrick’s Day Party – the 2nd Annual St Patrick’s All Day Music Festival and Crawfish Boil. The festivities get started at noon on Saturday and Sunday, March 16 and 17 at the Roswell Tap (1090 Alpharetta Street) – the Northside’s best place to Be Seen. Be Heard. And Be Fed.

“We’re really expecting an amazing weekend,” said Jerome Stuart, Managing Partner of the Roswell Tap, and the motivation behind the Tap’s monthly “Home Cooking Charities” program that benefits local charities. “The fact that we can have all of this fun and help a great charity like Cystic Fibrosis makes it even better – it’s going to be a great weekend.”

This year’s event, held in the Tap’s massive parking lot a couple hundred yards from Downtown Roswell, features an all-day lineup of 7 great bands comprised of winner’s from the Tap’s “Singer Songwriter” series, a weekly event that’s been growing in popularity with a new slate of local talent every Tuesday night.

Adding to the festivities, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation will also be holding a silent auction and conducting raffles, with all proceeds going to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Hopefully taking advantage of traditionally great springtime’s in Atlanta, the event kicks off on the Tap’s outside stage at noon on Saturday with the first of Saturday’s outdoors 6-band lineup.

Taking the stage at noon will be the “Hard Crush” band for the first of what will be 6, 1-hour plus sets. Following up “Hard Crush” will be Hannah Delane at 1:30 and Poverty Level at 2:45. John Clark keeps the party going with a 4 p.m. performance, followed by the Daniels Brothers at 5:15 and the always-popular Déjà Bluegrass Band at 6:45. The evening finishes with a long set performance inside by Kate and Corey beginning at 8 pm.

Beside’s the music, one of the day’s likely stars will be Chef Torry’s amazing food. In keeping with the day’s theme, the weekend’s menu features mellow smoked Corn Beef sandwiches, Guinness soft-baked pretzels, and traditional Fish and Chips. For those looking for traditional Irish libations, the Tap will have a host of specials that include Irish Car Bombs, Guinness and Harp beers on draft, as well as, Strongbow Cider. To add a little extra kick to this celebration The Tap is offering Boiled Crawfish, new potatoes, corn and sausage along with specials on Louisiana’s favorite beer: Abita Amber, Purple Haze, Jackamo IPA and Restoration Ale - all on draft.

Sunday’s festivities kick off at noon with a “Make Your Own Bloody Mary Bar,” followed by an afternoon performance by Mark Michelson and his Jam Band at 2:30 p.m.. Of course, there’ll be Tap’s awesome special St. Patrick’s Day authentic Irish food menu and drink specials to complete what surely will be one of Atlanta’s best St. Paddy’s Day Celebrations!
