Irish Harp St. Patricks Day celebrations postponed, will still go on when things are back to normal, staff says

Though the restaurant is closed, and St. Patrick’s Day plans aren’t moving forward right now, Jesse Morningstar of the Irish Harp says spirits are still high.

The restaurant has become known locally for its St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, which the restaurant typically goes all out for.

This year, with the province demanding closures of bars and restaurants due to COVID-19, the party won’t be happening — at least not right now.

Morningstar, a server at the Harp, said the restaurant still plans to throw its annual bash, just at a later date, when things are “back to normal.”

“We’re going to throw another St. Patrick’s Day party as soon as it’s safe to do so,” Morningstar told The Lake Report Tuesday.

“So we’re postponing it. We’ll (still) have a big party.”

He said despite everything going on and the restaurant being fully closed, staff morale is still high.

“Spirits are still good, everyone is just being safe and cautious,” said Morningstar.

“We are closed fully, no takeout or anything,” he added.

The rest of the restaurant’s March events and bands are also cancelled until the pub reopens. Reopening is planned for March 31.

In the meantime the restaurant is doing a gift card promotion.

“It’s a $50 gift card and you get an extra $10 gift card for every one that’s purchased,” Morningstar said.
