Halfway to St. Paddy’s Day

September 18, 2017


As local Coral Gables residents seek a post-Irma retreat, JohnMartin’s provided that and more during their “Halfway to St. Paddy’s Day Party” on Saturday, Sept.16.

With live music, a raffle, whiskey tastings, hot food and drinks, this all-day celebration stole the show. It provided people with much needed down time as they prepare themselves for the workweek ahead and for some a place to cool down, charge their phones and connect to JohnMartin’s free wifi.

JohnMartin’s is known for throwing a fun-filled St. Patrick’s Day celebration on March 17, and this halfway mark celebration is just a glimpse of what’s to come.
