Irish Ethnic Dinner -- October 13, 2011
October brought about another OLLI tradition – the ethnic dinner! The after-hours event at Kickapoo Creek Winery was a celebration of Irish culture and cuisine, themed “Eirinn Go Brach,” Gaelic for “Ireland Forever.”
The Bogside Zukes, a local favorite, began the evening by playing some favorite tunes and providing insight about the history of traditional Irish music. After dinner, which included Irish favorites such as Guinness stew, cabbage, and soda bread, Leo Jordan, OLLI member and a founding member of Friends of Clonmel, delighted us with a presentation about Irish culture and Peoria’s sister city relationship with Clonmel, Ireland.
