St. Patrick's Day 2018!!!

Be at Rare Olde Times for the best Paddy's day party in RVA! We are kicking off the festivities early this year with an Irish Breakfast buffet starting at 9:30am and then going all night long with music from some of your favorites...Bagpipes from Tim Batten Macleod, The Donnybrooks, Albafeire, The Tasty specials, and cloing out the night with Uisce Beatha!

Irish food and drink available all day/night!

There will be a $6 cover charge to benefit the Full Circle Grief Center

If you're just looking for sold tasty Irish food without all the maddness of going inside an Irish pub on Patrick's Day we will have our "Irish Rover" food truck outside for to go orders.

After all the festivities are over be sure to join us for our Hangover Brunch on the 18th for some Celtic tunes and tasty hangover fare.
