O'Toole's Irish Wake

When: Thu., March 16, 6:30-10 p.m. 2017

The Irish traditionally held a wake the day before St. Patrick's Day in defiance. At one point the protestant British had banned the celebration of all Catholic holidays, including St. Patrick's Day. So, in response, the Irish would hold a "wake" for a make believe dead person the day before in order to get away with having a St. Patrick's Day celebration.
