MARCH 2021 UPDATE
As most of you are aware, the 2021 St. Patrick’s Day Weekend Celebration in Holyoke has been cancelled for the second year in a row. Francie’s Tavern, like most restaurants and bars, has had an extremely challenging year due to the virus. On March 16th, 2020 we closed our doors and reopened on July 8th, 2020. During the time we were closed, we updated our bar to meet the state’s Covid guidelines and used the opportunity for a thorough cleaning of the facility. In addition, there has been a significant remodel of the premises.
While the past year has been a struggle, we have endured and want to take this opportunity to thank our customers, both old and new, for supporting us. Recognize our bartending staff who have continued to provide incredible service while embracing their new responsibilities to enforce Covid-protocols. Francie’s Tavern continues to practice and enforce all the CDC and State guidelines in our daily operation. We understand we cannot promise a 100% safe environment. However, we remain committed to doing our best to follow the protocols that are in place.
The 2021 St. Patrick’s Day in Holyoke will undeniably be different, but Francie’s Tavern is going to honor the holiday and Irish heritage this year. The Tavern will be adding a heated tent connected to the back of our building on March 12, 2021 (weather permitting) to accommodate additional patrons along with added social distancing. Like in our bar, we will be enforcing strict Covid guidelines, asking that everyone wear mask, practice social distancing and we will have several hand sanitizing stations.
Our Jukebox is full of great Irish music and the bar is well stocked with Guinness and Jameson. The tent will be set up with speakers connected to said Jukebox. Delicious Corned Beef sandwiches will be offered on a limited basis beginning on Saturday, March 6th/Saturday, March 13th, 2021 and Wednesday, March 17th through Saturday March 20th, 2021. To-go orders will be available on a limited basis as well. Sandwich hours will be 12:00 PM until 7:00PM or until the daily supply runs through.
Please everyone, stay safe! Continue to wear a mask, wash & sanitize your hands, and practice social distancing! We hope to see you in March at Francie’s Tavern!
