Where Will The Quad Cities Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day Now?
Kelly's Irish Pub has officially closed it's doors after 13 years. According to the Quad City Times, Dan Kelly had one vision, and that was to throw the largest, craziest St. Patrick's Day party ever complete with sky-diving leprechauns, live music, and enough green beer to fill the Mississippi River (well at least here in the Quad Cities).
The party has grown from 2,000 in a tent to over 20,000 in 2 heated tents. Over the years, Dan has done commercials that say "Kelly's IS St. Patrick's Day!" which is a bold statement, but he put his money where his mouth is.
Dan Kelly decided its time to move on and peruse other ideas.
