Fitzgerald’s Pub coming to Franklin Street
Fitzgerald’s Irish Pub: The owners of a bar and grill as well as an Irish pub in Charlotte are planning to open a Fitzgerald’s Irish Pub location in Chapel Hill at 206 W. Franklin St.
They’re opening the pub in the space that previously housed Kildare’s Irish Pub, which closed a few days before St. Patrick’s Day after the owners of the property reclaimed the space.
The owners of Fitzgerald’s are Kevin Marcuse and Todd Milner, who also own Kennedy’s Premium Bar and Grill and Fitgerald’s Irish Pub in Charlotte. They’re planning to open their second Fitgerald’s in May.
The pub and restaurant will offer Irish food as well as American pub staples, according to a news release. The menu will include shepherd’s pie, fish and chips, and hamburgers.
The restaurant will be open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. for lunch, dinner and late-night.
Concert and fundraiser: A free concert will be held May 5 in the Cat’s Cradle parking lot featuring the bands Lost in the Trees, The Love Language, and Loamlands.
Farmer Foodshare will be on-site selling a limited edition Lost in the Trees T-shirt, with all proceeds going to the organization’s mission of connecting people at-risk of hunger and malnutrition with fresh produce from local farms.
The band Lost in the Trees selected Farmer Food as the recipient of its fundraising effort, according to a news release. The T-shirt was designed by the company Upperatus. Proceeds from T-shirt sales will support the organization.
That day is also Carrboro Day. The community festival will be held from 1 to 6 p.m. at the Carrboro Town Commons.
