Welcome to Home Skillet, where Shamrock Shakes are order of the week. A few St. Patty’s Day events below:
Thursday, February 12: From the vibrant and fragrant Longwood Gardens Conservatory comes Tapas Table—a nod to that white-hot, Spanish style small plate dining.
From 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. indulge on delectable tapas courtesy of Longwood’s top chefs. While you dine, enjoy music by the Jazz Club at Longwood. Think of it as tapas for your ears.

Tuesday, March 17: International Restaurant of Mystery, Ameritage Restaurant and Lounge, is taking a one-day leave from its hitch in France. On St. Patty’s Day, the restaurant will travel 1,500 kilometers northwest to Ireland for $3 Twin Lakes green beer, $3 Guinness, $5 Irish Car Bombs, and free Irish appetizers. The special runs from 8 p.m. to midnight.
Tuesday, March 17: Your undisputed St. Patrick’s Day headquarters this year—and it’s hardly a surprise—is Newark’s righteous A Piece of Ireland. On Tuesday, the restaurant opens its doors at 9 a.m. for a traditional (i.e. humungous) Irish breakfast, and will continue throughout the day with live music, giveaways, Irish cuisine and general partying down. Visit A Piece of Ireland (Chesmar Plaza Route 4 & Marrows Road, Newark, 454-1900) to get all blarney.
Now: For the entire month of March, Brandywine Prime is offering a special menu to honor Brandywine Country’s restaurant month. Choose a three-course meal from this delicious looking menu for just $30.
