     Have you ever heard bagpipes in person? It’s something you won’t forget. Remember, every body is a little bit Irish on St. Patrick’s Day and that includes today’s celebration. We’re going to a lovely old Victorian Mansion for a Traditional Irish Dinner. Live Bagpipes & Drums performance, Show of Irish music, dancing and singing and a stop at a popular cheese store and antique mall. Join us for the celebration.

     The day begins at 7:45am with FREE PARKING and BREAKFAST BUFFET at the Center. At 8:15am our COACH BUS (restroom on board) leaves for the JACOB HENRY MANSION in Joliet, Illinois. At 10:30am we arrive with time for a SELF-GUIDED TOUR of this beautiful 40-room home (similar to the Pabst Mansion) where railroad magnate Jacob Henry brought 100s of craftsmen from Germany in 1873 to build his estate. The highlight is the magnificent wood staircase that exemplifies the old Victorian charm of this home. At 11:30am we are seated for a TRADITIONAL IRISH DINNER featuring Aunt Annie’s Award Winning CORNED BEEF and CABBAGE with POTATOES & CARROTS; Fresh TOSSED GARDEN SALAD; Warm ROLLS & WHIPPED BUTTER; Coffee or Tea and for Dessert: GRASSHOPPER BROWNIE – Mint Ice Cream on a Brownie drizzled with Chocolate Sauce. (Vegetarian and Gluten Free options available. Call B. Marie at 414-482-1000 for details.) And don’t forget the Green Beer and other drinks available at the Cash Bar (not included in trip cost).

     At 12:40pm the BAGPIPES & DRUMS Performance starts the SHOW. The Chicago Irish Band has been voted by Chicago Tribune readers as the best Irish Band in Chicago. They play frequently at the Chicago Irish Heritage Society and are featured every year in the Chicago St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Listen, enjoy and dance if you want to traditional Irish music and songs. After the show we head for TIM & TOM’S CHEESE SHOP and DAIRYLAND ANTIQUE MALL in Kenosha. Voted the #1 Antique Mall in the Southeastern Wisconsin, this quaint mall has everything from jewelry to household goods, kitchen items, dishes, glassware, furniture and apparel. The Cheese Shop is owned by brothers and offers all kinds of cheeses, sausages, jellies and jams, honeys and a full line of Merkts’ cheeses. Try the free samples.
