WindsorEats St. Patrick’s Celebration
Are we on schedule with our new space? Nope. Are our construction and renovations complete? Nope. Do we still want to celebrate St. Paddy’s Day and show you what we’ve done so far? Yep!
Of course, because it’s not in our nature to do the same old, we’ll be adding our own twist. WindsorEats will be throwing an outdoor St. Patrick’s Day celebration at our new location!!! That’s right! On Thursday, March 17, 2022, you can come to our Little Italy location to celebrate an Irish holiday while enjoying Canadian beers and Mexican tacos, listening to live entertainment.
We’ll be setting up our outdoor yard, which can accommodate 425 people, with picnic tables and cocktail tables to enjoy some beer and wine as Windsor’s most captivating Celtic band takes the stage. The only St. Patrick’s Day performance by Tartan Army will take place from 1-4pm, while solo act James Staley graces the stage from 530-830pm.
Yes, we also mentioned tacos and this one’s a nice treat!
Rico Taco Mexican Street Eats will be making their offerings available for the first time since they shut their brick and mortar location back in November 2021.
We’ll also have green cotton candy bombs from Cottam Candy for the kids. Will turn their drink green.
