March 10, 2012 - PRLog -- P.J. Clarke’s, the most Irish of American Saloons, announces the second installment of their time-honored and legendary St. Patrick’s Day celebration.  The event, the most comprehensive all-day gathering in the city, begins at 8 a.m. on Saturday, March 17 and ends with last call and a lucky guest who will be awarded two (his and hers) Vespa scooters.

The Washington iteration of the event, held at the center of political power, 16th & K Streets NW, will bring together Democrats and Republicans as they partake in P.J.’s legendary brunch, clink a toast of Jameson, and revel in the tradition that has made P.J. Clarke’s a St. Patrick’s mainstay since 1884.

Day-long festivities at P.J. Clarke’s Washington D.C. will include:

•   Early morning kick-off Kegs & Eggs Brunch starting at 8 am, with half-off brunch for law enforcement officers as well as runners of the Rock-n-Roll Marathon and Half-Marathon (runners must present bibs to receive discount);

•   Live performances by the Culkin School Irish Dancers and a traditional Irish Pipe & Drum Band throughout the evening;

•   Traditional Irish fare, including Corned Beef and Cabbage, Reubens, and Shepherd’s Pie on the menu for the day;

•   Drink specials on Irish beer and liquor, including Guinness ($4), Harp Lager ($4), Bass ($4), Jameson Irish whiskey shots ($6) and Bushmills Irish whiskey shots ($6).  Shots come with a free P.J. Clarke’s shot glass;

•   Weather-permitting, corn hole tournaments and pot o’ gold drink specials on the outdoor dining patio;

•   Screenings of Round 3 NCAA basketball tournament games downstairs at Sidecar, P.J. Clarke’s semi-private dining room, on 4 flatscreen televisions. Sidecar will be open to the public all day;

•   A chance to win his-and-hers LX 150 Vespa scooters (value: $10,000) when patrons make a $20 donation to the National Law Enforcement Officers Fund; a numbered P.J. Clarke’s t-shirt comes with each donation and counts as an entry. P.J. Clarke’s will match the donation amount raised from t-shirt sales; sales will be capped at 500. In addition, a portion of the proceeds from the day’s food and drink sales will benefit the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund;

•   Washington Redskins cheerleaders will be on hand to cheer on fundraising efforts.

About P.J Clarke’s Washington D.C.
On the road to the White House at 1600 K Street, democracy continues its reign at this most American of saloons. The dining room, featuring opposing “political” booths, the oak bar (circa 1890), semi-private lower level dining den, Sidecar, and outdoor dining patio each have their own unique appeal, yet are tied together with a distinct Washington sensibility of history and old world charm.

Famous for its raw bar, prime steaks and the "Cadillac" of burgers, P.J. Clarke's is a great spot for a power lunch, happy hour, gathering with friends or a respite from D.C. sightseeing.

P.J. Clarke’s Washington D.C. is the newest member to a now-international tradition which stems from its 125 year old location on Third Avenue at 55th Street in New York City. Additional gathering posts are located at Lincoln Square and Four World Financial Center in New York, the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, and in the heart of Sao Paulo, Brazil.
