c=”http://irishphiladelphia.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/Irish-bread.jpg” alt=”" width=”425″ height=”282″ /> Tullamore Crew will be making dinner at the Irish Center on Sunday. Take a kitchen break!
Don’t worry about cooking up a big Sunday dinner this weekend. Let the Tullamore Crew do it for you. These veterans of the Shanachie Restaurant and Pub in Ambler, which closed its doors this year, will be serving up three courses of Irish fare at The Irish Center in Philadelphia every third Sunday. The cost is $18 for members, $25 for members (now there’s an impetus to join) and $7 for children. You may have tasted their food at the Celtic Classic in Bethlehem last month.
Check out Inis Nua Theatre Company’s latest offering, “A Slow Air,” one of the non-Irish plays they’re doing this year. (The theatre group does contemporary plays from the UK.) Athol and Morna are a middle-aged brother and sister who are forced to negotiate a truce in their rivalry in the shadow of the Glasgow Airport terrorist attack of 2007. The play runs till October 21 at the Off Broad Street Theater at First Baptist Church in center city.
On Saturday night, the Broken Shillelaghs are performing at The Whiskey Barrell Tavern in Gloucester City, NJ. And on Sunday, you can attend a ceili at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Bethlehem with music by Pancho, Kevin and Jimmy.
On Thursday, Professor Molly McCloskey of Villanova, a writer, will be hosting a non-fiction reading co-sponsored by the English department at the university.
Also on Thursday, the Claddagh Fund, a nonprofit, and The Galway Guild—they’re Celtic rockers—will be raising money for Hope for The Warriors, which supports veterans, at the Dubh Linn Square Pub in Cherry Hill.
And on Friday, catch Jamison at Kildare’s in Manayunk (they’ll be at Curran’s in Bensalem next Saturday).
As usual, check our calendar for all the details.
