Welcome to March….the month with important holidays, the change of season, and special events at The Main Street Pub. It is actually our most favorite month……it ‘s Irish American Heritage Month, which includes St. Patrick’s Day and since we are the McNamara Clan it makes it that more special to us!
Corned Beef and Cabbage is the highlight of the Specials Menu in March…..makes sense, right? Our Corned Beef and Cabbage is made fresh daily….a generous portion of corned beef brisket and cabbage, served with cooked carrots and red potatoes. Delicious and available all 31 days in March!!
Knowing that everyone believes they’re “a wee bit” Irish, but is not a fan of corned beef and cabbage, we will have our Chili and a Grilli….very hearty and filling. Also our Steak Quesadilla and the Harvest Pear Salad…..just great, great specials for all to enjoy, so come on by soon!
Our St. Patrick’s Day “Over the Top” Celebration will be held March 16th and 17th! Beginning at 8 am we will have hourly specials and great food for you to enjoy….so come in and celebrate with us….get your GREEN on!

What’s the history and up-to-date trivia info on the Irish in America?
Irish immigrants have traveled to and lived in the United States since the early18th century. In fact, Irish immigrants participated in the American Revolution. Charles Carroll, signer of the United States Declaration of Independence was the descendant of Irish Nobility in County Tipperary.
The surge of Irish immigrants occurred with the Great Irish Famine of the 1840s. Almost 2 million immigrants entered the country over that time. Most of these immigrants were hired as laborers for roads, canals, sewers, and railroads. They were also hired to build cities. Kansas City was one city built by Irish immigrants and even today much of the population of Kansas City is of Irish descent.
35 million people in the US, which is 10.5% of the total population, claim Irish ancestry. 21.2% of the population of Massachusetts claims an Irish descent. The Irish Americans are seen in all areas of our culture. The Irish have dominated police and Fire Departments for over 100 years. Twenty-one of our 45 US Presidents can prove their Irish heritage. There have been many Irish Americans in films and TV, sports, literary and political figures, comedians and singers.
Like they say……everyone is a wee bit Irish! And we are honored to have our Irish heritage!
We can’t wait to see you all through the month of March. We hope you will come in and enjoy our celebrations. We believe that we are all one big Irish family and we include each and every one! Just remember this Irish proverb…..
Here's to you and yours
And to mine and ours.
And if mine and ours
Ever come across to you and yours,
I hope you and yours will do
As much for mine and ours
As mine and ours have done
For you and yours!
We wish you a beautiful spring and a fabulous St. Patrick’s Day! We look forward to seeing you soon at The Main Street Pub. Stay well and keep smiling!
