    If Parade Day weekend has left you hungover and hungry the Scranton Cultural Center can help.

    On Monday, March 13, following Saturday and Sunday’s parades in Scranton and Wilkes-Barre respectively, the Cultural Center will feature Irish fare from The Colonnade. The event will be held in the Masonic Temple’s first floor grand ballroom.

    The St. Patrick’s Day inspired food will highlight dishes filled with bold flavors including lamb and vegetable pasties (small hand pies), Irish cream crème brulee and more. The chef will also present several cooking demonstrations. Dinner is served at 7 p.m. but a cocktail hour preceeds the tasting starting at 6 p.m.

    Participants can enjoy samples of all the food that is prepared and a cash bar will be available throughout the event.

    Tickets are $12 per person and are available at the Fidelity Bank Box Office at the Scranton Cultural Center, by calling 570-344-1111 or through Ticketmaster.

    For more information or to see a full schedule, visit sccmt.org.
