Diverse Group Of Happy Friends Celebrating St Patrick’s Day Raising Glasses Of Beer At A Bar. Fun During Celebration Of The Irish Patron Saint’s Day.

Youngers Tavern celebrates with Green Beer, Corned Beef and Live Music

Looking to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Downtown Romeo? You do not have to travel overseas to get in the Irish spirit.
If you’re seeking an Irish experience during the St. Patrick’s Day holiday weekend, Younger’s Irish Tavern in Downtown Romeo is the place to be.
And this year is extra special for this local favorite, due to some upcoming changes.

“If you follow our social media, we made an announcement that this will be our last St. Patrick’s day as a ‘Irish Tavern,’ as we are rebranding,” says Mary Hoenicke, spokesperson for the tavern.

The event goes beyond just a March 17 celebration. Festivities kick off casually on March 16 at 6 p.m. with Irish food, drinks and music, at the tavern’s annual “St. Practice Day.”

The main event starts Sunday and kicks things up a notch. Starting at 9 a.m., patrons can enjoy green beer, and a special Irish menu that includes their famous corn beef Reuben, or corn beef and cabbage entree.

In addition to a beer tent, celebrate at the 3 outdoor patios or the tavern’s two indoor levels. Enjoy some live music on Sunday, including:

  • Paul & Oates 12 – 3 p.m.
  • 101 WRIF 3 – 5 p.m.
  • Jukebox Junkies 4 – 8 p.m.
  • Showroom DJ & Dancing
  • “Here at Youngers, we like to celebrate big,” Hoenicke says. “We really want to go out with a bang and have it be an absolute awesome bash to celebrate our many many years of being an Irish Tavern.”

    Wander Around Romeo’s WinterFest Wonderland

    Want a good reason to get out of the house? It might be chilly outside, but you can bask in the warmth of community and fun at WinterFest in downtown Romeo! If you’re a longtime resident, or live elsewhere and want to explore our cozy corner of the world in all of its winter beauty, it’s a great time to head downtown.
    Whether you want to run a 5K, take a scenic carriage ride around historic downtown, bring your world famous recipe to a chili cookoff, there’s something for everyone now through Feb. 10 at this fun, family-friendly multi-weekend recurring event.

    “WinterFest started last year as a way to help bring more business downtown in the winter months,” says Danielle Lee, Romeo DDA board member.

    Warm up at these spots

    Michigan weather can be unpredictable, especially in the winter. One day it’s snowing and below zero, and the next the sun is shining and it’s up to 40 degrees. But at WinterFest, there are many ways to warm up from the chill and have indoor or sheltered fun.

    If you’re seeking coffee or another toasty beverage and small treat, take a break at Main’s Treat Coffeehouse or 5° North Coffee Roasters. Enjoy coffee or tea at a cozy table, or take your treat into the igloo in the park.

    Feeling hungry? Warm up with comfort food at one of our many eateries. Whether you are craving chili fries, sushi, soup, sweets, or something else, our variety of culinary choices downtown will help you get your foodie fix.

    In the mood for some retail therapy? Antiquing is our middle name. Check out our many vintage stores for a one-of-a-kind piece. If you’re an art collector or enjoyer, our two galleries showcase a variety of art styles, and even offer classes so you can create.

    And if you want to kick back and relax, take a horse-drawn carriage ride and see our village from a new perspective.

    Event registration and requirements

    Walking around and enjoying ice sculptures and decorated snowmen makes for a fun adventure. But WinterFest also offers a chance to showcase your cooking skills or get active.

    Is your chili the highlight at gatherings with family and friends? Put your recipe to the test and sign up for the Chili Cookoff! To participate, register by filling out this form with the Romeo DDA. Each entrant will prepare 2 crocks of chili, and specify whether they are a professional or home cook. Cooks need to specify the type of chili they’ll prepare, including but not limited to beef or chicken.

    Do you love to run? Support young runners at Romeo High while enjoying yourself by participating in the WinterFest 5K.

    Registration is open now
