Eagles’ Nest hosts St. Paddy’s party
The new Tahoe American Irish League is sponsoring a St. Patrick’s Day celebration beginning at 6 p.m. Monday, March 17.
The Eagles’ Nest at the top of Kingsbury Grade is the official home of the Tahoe American Irish League
“If you love good traditional Irish grub, good drink, and down-to-earth people, you need to join us this St. Paddy’s Day,” said Kevin “Reds” Regan, co-founder of the club. “Our motto this year is ‘Come and Drink Ye TAIL off at the Eagles’ Nest,’ and we’re sure to deliver the most lively blarney-speaking experience since the Celts partied on Galway Bay.”
The “greens fee” is $10 and includes three pints of Wexford’s Imported Irish Stout, a commemorative St. Paddy’s Day TAIL button, plus a free charter lifetime TAIL membership card while supplies last. The Eagles’ Nest will serve its signature Irish taco plate for $9: corned beef tacos, Irish potato salad and GrandMom Della’s traditional Irish soda bread, made from a 200-year-old family recipe.
“To join the Irish League, you don’t need to be Irish,” Regan said. “You just need to embody the Irish spirit of kindness, good humor, good nature and enjoy the art of good conversation.”
Regan and Billy “the Blarney” Marchetti, the proprietor of the Eagles’ Nest Lounge, are the hosts of the St. Paddy’s Day fest. The Eagles’ Nest features a view of the lake and a full-service bar with Irish car bomb specials for St. Paddy’s Day. Dress code: Green attire required!
Designated drivers will receive free sodas and coffee throughout the St. Paddy’s Day event. The Eagles’ Nest Lounge is at 472 Needle Peak Road; go 1.2 miles from the beginning of Tramway and take a right at the Perennial Vacation Club Eagles’ Nest. For more information, call (775) 588-6570.
