The Mayfair Business Association is hoping the upcoming Shamrock Shuttle goes on without incident.
Lisa Greco, treasurer of the group, attended a recent meeting that included bar owners and officials of the Mayfair and Holmesburg civic associations and the Mayfair Town Watch.
The bar owners agreed to rent 75 portable toilets, but declined to accept a request that they also pay for private security guards. They will also free up parking spaces in front of their establishments so the shuttles do not have to double-park.
The Shuttle will take place on Saturday, March 3, from 1 to 6 p.m. The cost is $10, which includes a wristband for the shuttle and a souvenir cup with one full beer. The cost is $20 for the wristband, cup, beer and T-shirt.
The following bars are participating: Casper’s Place, Cappy’s Cafe, Coach’s Bar & Grill, Fluke’s Restaurant & Pub, Hammerheads Bar & Grill, Harrington’s, Kilbane’s Irish Pub, McNoodles Irish Pub, Owen’s Cafe, Reale’s Sports Bar & Grille, Sheffield Tavern and Tom’s Sportsman.
More information is available on the Shamrock Shuttle fan page on Facebook.
Mayfair Memorial Playground, at Rowland Avenue and Vista Street, will hold its second annual Easter egg hunt on Saturday, March 24, from noon to 2 p.m.
The event is for children up to 8 years old. The cost is $2 per child, and kids should bring their own baskets.
The Easter Bunny will be in attendance. There will also be a bake sale. ••EndFragment EndFragment
