Greg Parbs owner of O’Connor’s Irish Pub & Grill on Tylertown Road recently opened a new addition to his establishment known as “Celtic Center.”
Once or twice a month, Parbs hosts a “Super Saturday” benefit in his new Celtic Center, which serves as “a chance for us to give back,” he said. “We are taking a portion of our proceeds to benefit Soldier and Family Assistance Center and the Fisher House. They both benefit wounded warriors and their families, and we feel fortunate in our business to give back.”
The festivities begin at 6 p.m. with live music, and if you come early you can save on the cover.
“We start a cover charge at 7 p.m.,” Parbs said. “The cover charge is $7.”
For the entertainment, O’Connor’s live music lineup includes 3 D Live — a blues and classic rock band — followed by X-Men, who play 80s tribute music.
If you enjoy yourself this Saturday, Parbs hope to see you next Saturday for a second round. The entertainment lineup on Aug. 20 begins with Smoking Jaze — a local modern and classic rock band — and closing out with Tennessee Thunder — a “high-energy” country and Southern rock band.
And don’t worry about the heat, Parbs says, O’Connor’s has that taken care of too.
“The Cool Zone is a mist area to cool you off in the heat,” he said.
Super Saturdays continue 6 p.m. Sept. 17, Oct. 1 and Oct. 15.
