St Patrick's Day isn't quite here, but last weekend the Brooklyn/Irish Hills area celebrated anyhow. Friday and Saturday was the first "Taste of the Irish Hills" with 18 restaurants participating, with "tastes" ranging from BarBQue to Mediterranean to Subway. To celebrate St Patrick's Day, guests at Dewey Lake Manor received a free coupon for a Shamrock Shake.
There was also a "Taste of History" held on Saturday, sponsored by the group OH These Irish Hills! This is the second year for the" History Palooza", and it was well attended again. Local people bring their historical items-pictures, writings, memorabilia-and visitors are welcome to sit down and read the information, which many did.
