Boy do you guys like your green beer, corned beef and cabbage. We asked on Facebook where you like to show off your Irish and here’s what you had to say. Karen Jensen Maxine’s 835 Washington Avenue!! New owner! Erika Minna Weitkuhn McAuliffe’s Pub. (213 6th St. Racine) Laurel Romnek The Blue Rock! (306 6th St., Racine) Joan Simon Greg the Beacon is now Peg & Lou’s. Still a great place. (3113 Douglas Ave. Racine) Sandy Giese Roundabout (5844 Douglas Ave., Caledonia) Nancy Smith Buckets pub- Reuben’s and curbed beef and cabbage- all weekend thru Monday- yum! (2031 Lathrop Ave., Racine) Stacey Beth Coasters! (1301 N. Main St. Racine) Janell Smith Ivanhoes (231 Main St. Racine) Michael R Morrison Uncorkt (240 Main St.) & Ivanhoes (231 Main St. Racine) If you’ve got any more ideas, feel free to add yours in the comments section of this story.
