About Halfway to St. Patrick's at Kennedy School


OK, we know, it's kind of a wacky idea - no one celebrates halfway to St. Valentine's Day, right? (Although, now that we think about it... nahhh...)

But, regardless, we love St. Patrick's Day and we love being halfway to it! So let's have some drinks, hear some music and have a full-on good time together. Because why not?

** Food & Drink Specials **
plus Irish-tinged revelry at all of our joints!

About Johnny B. Connolly Duo


Portland is truly fortunate to have a musician of this caliber. World-renowned Connolly brings the true music of Ireland to our little corner of the world. His "hell-for-leather speed and exacting accuracy" (Willamette Week) on the button accordion has paved the way for Connolly to travel across continents, providing him opportunities to perform and record with many internationally-renowned artists including Kevin Burke, the Chieftains, Anam, Patrick Ourceau and Aidan Brennan.
