A reminder of tonight’s “Pot Luck and Bottle Share” at The Red Leprechaun—along with locations and times for the Big Red Bus

RedLeprechaunBigRedBus
Don’t forget about tonight’s “Pot Luck and Bottle Share” at The Red Leprechaun, which takes place tonight, Wednesday, Jan 22nd, between 6:30p and 8:30p!

If you missed our previous announcement about the Red Leprechaun’s “Public House Night” that is being held especially for residents of Rose Park tonight, see our post from January 16th for details.

At that time, we mentioned we’d have times and locations for the Big Red Bus, which is kindly offering free transportation to and from both the north and south sections of our neighborhood and the Red Leprechaun. Here they are!

  • From Rose Park South to the Red Leprechaun—meet at the northeast corner of 4th Street and Temple Avenue (the parking lot of “4th & Temple Laundromat”) at 6:00p
  • From Rose Park North to the Red Leprechaun—meet at the gazebo in Rose Park (8th St and Orizaba Ave) at 6:30p
  • For your return to Rose Park South (the northeast corner of 4th Street and Temple Avenue)—the bus will leave the Red Leprechaun at 8:00p, having you back where you started by 8:15p or so
  • For your return to Rose Park North (the roundabout at 8th St and Orizaba Ave)—the bus will leave the Red Leprechaun at 8:30p, having you back where you started by 8:45p or so

For each return trip, announcements will be made at the Red Leprechaun so that persons wishing to get on a return bus will have time to board the bus before it leaves.

We look forward to seeing you this evening with your special dish or drink to share!
