St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner! Grab some friends and join the grandest St. Patrick’s Day celebration in the Pacific, Murphy’s annual block party on March 17th! It’s all for a good cause as Murphy’s will be donating two dollars per pound of corned beef sold throughout the week to benefit the Hawaii Children’s Cancer Foundation.
Don Murphy has owned Murphy’s for 31 years. He says the Irish love throwing a party, and the St. Patrick’s Day celebration is an opportunity to bring awareness of the Irish culture in Hawaii.
On March 17th, Murphy’s Bar and Grill will open at 11 a.m., serving lunch in both the restaurant and the parking lot across the street with several food booths. Food offerings include corned beef and cabbage, fresh shucked oysters, fish & chips, and more! There will also be beverages, t-shirts and souvenirs available.
From 12 – 3 p.m., kids can check out the Keiki Fair and enjoy face painting, balloons, crafts, and storytelling. By 4 p.m., Nuuanu and Merchant Street will be blocked off to kick off the block party. With DJ stages and live music from 6 – 10 p.m., get ready to dance!
Murphy is married to Marion Murphy, who he calls the backbone of the restaurant. She will make 800 desserts for the event, including key lime pies, bread pudding, and Irish Whiskey Cake.
Murphy’s urges everyone planning to join the fun to celebrate responsibly. LYFT will have 3 locations outside the festival for drop off and pick up. If you are planning to drive, consider carpooling, don’t drink and drive, and always find a designated driver!
