St. Patrick’s Day in Los Gatos, Past and Present

March 12, 2013

There is one venerable place in town where I simply spend just entirely way too much time, C. B. Hannegan’s.  This coming Sunday, Hannegan’s will be repeating their hugely famous Saint Patty’s Day celebration.  I’ve copied this announcement from their web site:

or give them a call at 408-395-1233.

But, for those of you who may not know, this celebration has it roots deep down in the lore and legends of our dear town.  And rather than me boring you with some half baked, second hand version of this history, I again link you to Hannegan’s web site, but this time you can read the complete history of the world famous “Shooter Scooter Races” which took place right here in the streets of old Los Gatos.  The story is told by one of my oldest and dearest friends, Tom Ovens who has been the bartender “par excellance” at some of the finest drinking establishments in our fair town.  Read about the beginnings of Saint Pat’s celebrations in Los Gatos by clicking here . . .
