Welcome to the St. PatrickÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s edition of Cork Bits. How does a city known for its world class wine celebrate a day known for a couple green pints? HereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s how:
Saturday, March 17:
- HurleyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Restaurant will be celebrating the luck of the Irish by unveiling a special Gaelic menu that includes Corned Beef Agus Cabalstz (corned beef and cabbage), Gaelic Stu (Irish stew), and a unique Ã¢â‚¬Å“Irish CioppinoÃ¢â‚¬Â. Guiness draught and Irish Whiskey is also available. This menu is available for lunch and dinner at 6518 Washington Street, Yountville. (707) 944-2345.

Saturday, March 17 and Sunday, March 18:
- Cliff Lede VineyardsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ newly released 2003 Poetry Howell Mountain will be available for tasting and purchase this weekend. This Cabernet Sauvignon is nearly gone so don’t miss it.
