Erin Go Bragh

Go Green for Pete's Greens: Celebrate Ireland with us on St. Patrick's Day, when our Thursday Music Night goes "open mic night" to benefit Pete's Greens. Come by for Steven's version of corned beef, raise a pint of Rock Art Brewery's new Pete's Greens Barn Raising Brown Ale, and our proceeds go to Pete's Greens and then on to the newly formed Vermont Farm Fund. Wear your finest greens, bring some extra greens in your wallet, enjoy drink specials and show off your talent in support of Northern Vermont agriculture. We are excited to be a part of this effort and hope you will join us on Thursday. If you are interested in performing at the Open Mic, there is still space available - email us at

Around the Galaxy: A world of reading awaits you at the Galaxy, as two highlights from the week demonstrate. Galaxy is well stocked with The Warmth of Other Suns, which won the National Book Critics Circle award this week after being a favorite of Galaxy readers for several months. And we just received a companion volume to the Galaxy bestseller The Backyard Homestead, Guide to Raising Farm Animals, which includes a full-color at-a-glance breed guide to the animals. Stop in to see these books and lots more!

Local Events: Vermont's 10th Annual Maple Open House Weekend is this Saturday and Sunday, March 19 and 20. This is a great opportunity to visit local sugarhouses and watch maple syrup being made. Sweet Stone Maple Farm in Hardwick will be open, and local favorites The Butterbeans will play bluegrass beginning at 2:00.

Reminders: We are open daily after 2:30 for coffee, bar service, and baked goods, and free WiFi, with dinner reservations available from 5-9, Sundays from 5-8. We serve our special Blunch menu Sundays from 11-2. Claire's is closed every Wednesday. We appreciate it when you use cash or a check- credit card companies charge us a fee that really adds up.
