Saint Patrick day at the Black Sheep pub
An Irish Tradition Celebrated In Nosara

By Pinar Istek

St. Patrick's Day was celebrated on March 17th at Black Sheep Pub with the participation of tens of Nosara residents and visitors. As the tradition requires, the color of the night was green.

While Adriano and Francesco enriched the night with the delicious Italian food they served, Costa Rican band, Mumble Riot, nurtured the souls with the melodies, which they brought from San Jose. The menu consisted of dishes from Italian and Irish cuisines, such as Irish stew, individual pizza, shepherd pie, vegetable plate, Italian sausage with potatoes and desert, designed with the colors of Irish flag.
In addition to the Irish car bomb shots – a shot of Irish whisky mixed with Irish cream in a glass of Irish stout-, three different brews, libertas, segue and special stout, from Costa Rica's Craft Brewing Company stamped the night.

St. Patrick's Day is an internationally celebrated religious holiday and the most commonly recognized of the patron saints of Ireland. Since 17th century, Saint Patrick's Day has been celebrated as an official feast day. Over the years, it became a celebration of Irish culture in general.
