Bogside-Rogues21If you are looking to party like only the Irish can on St Patrick’s Day, there are plenty of places to “Get your Green on!”  But, no party is complete without one of Philly’s most popular Irish bands, The Bogside Rogues!

The Bogside Rogues have been around as long as I can remember.  In fact, when I think of local Irish bands, I immediately think of them.  This phenomenal group of musicians are very well known for their upbeat sound, while still staying true to their traditional roots.  The band performs a variety of Irish and Celtic styles including ballads, rebel songs, traditional dance music and contemporary Irish songs. Each member of the band has different Celtic musical backgrounds.  Using a combination of instruments including Accordion/Tin Whistle, Guitar, Bass and Drums, together they form an edgy live sound.  In fact,  they have inspired many other musicians to take up instruments in order to continue this wonderful tradition of music.

The Bogside Rogues have toured quite a bit in the Mid-Atlantic United States. They have taken their show abroad as well, having played in Ireland as well as the Caribbean & the Panama Canal. They typically play at pubs and festivals, and have also performed in St. Patrick’s Day Parades and other functions featuring Irish music and culture. The members of the band work in close association with the Irish community and its various member groups, especially the Ancient Order of Hibernians (AOH), and contributes time, talent, and resources in their various fundraising efforts.

To me, Irish music has always been quite emotional.  My husband is 100% Irish and I have learned a great deal about the strength, wisdom and hugely robust sense of humor of the Irish.  They are people that everyone wants to be around when times are happy and even when they are sad.  They know how to party, but they also know how to be strong in times of doubt and sorrow.  Irish music portrays the struggles, the joys and the love within the Irish people.  It’s inspirational and can be quite ethereal.  The Bogside Rogues have found a way to incorporate all the emotions this wonderful music exudes into a highly energetic and fun show!

You can see The Bogside Rogues perform live at many great venues including every First Friday at Tir Na Nog in Philadelphia. In fact, that is where they will be on St. Patrick’s Day!  You can view their entire schedule on their website ; If you would like to have them play at your event, festival or party please call  1-888-205-4762.  If it’s Irish music you want, they are the best!

The Bogside Rogues are Bob Finegan (Drums & Percussion), Fran O’Connor (Bass Guitar, Vocals), Bobby Hurst (Vocals, Accordion, Tin Whistle), & Tim Murphy (Acoustic Guitar, Vocals).  If you are looking for authentic Irish music, played with heart and soul you will LOVE The Bogside Rogues!

At the corners of State and Washington Streets in Historic Newtown Borough is a wonderful place called The Temperance House.  “The Temp” as many of their regular patrons lovingly call it, is not just a local tavern.  The tradition of the Temperance House began in 1772, when soldier and scholar Andrew McMinn first opened the inn.  Since then, The Temperance House has seen many different proprietors and has been used as a meeting place where drinks, ice cream and even oysters have been served to the locals.  The Temperance House is steeped in history and today owned and operated by Carlene and Pat Deon, who still maintain “The Temp’s” love of Newtown’s colorful heritage.

As you walk in either of the entrances, you immediately feel its charm.  The Temperance House has so much to offer as a tavern, restaurant and an inn, and its casual elegance is just a reminder that once inside, you are going to experience something special.  The culinary team of chefs James Hagan and Derek Fields are always creating new and exciting dishes to please every palate, even accommodating those who choose gluten-free foods or are vegetarians.  The menu changes seasonally to take advantage of all the wonderful meats, seafood and vegetables that are available at the time.  The best way to describe the food would be American, but it definitely has an international fusion flare.  Both chefs are very thoughtful when considering which delights to offer guests, even taking time to consider Chinese New Year and other Holidays important to many.  The food is always fresh, always delicious and very reasonably priced.  Lunch specials start at just $6.00, and dinners start at just $14.00.  The portions are large and very satisfying.  The staff is absolutely wonderful, too, always making sure all guests are comfortable and content.

A night at The Temperance House, whether you are there for just drinks, dinner or a weekend stay is certainly going to be memorable.  The building itself is beautifully maintained.  Considering its age, you will never see cracks, broken trim or flooring anywhere.  Mr. and Mrs. Deon love this building and it shows.  They have taken great care to see that it is continuously cleaned and maintained to keep its charm and beauty.  From elegant fireplaces in the dining rooms, to the beautifully appointed stained glass art and light fixtures, “The Temp” is the place to be in Newtown.  It is definitely a favorite among locals, and can accommodate up to 150 people at one time.  It’s a great place to have a party and if you are looking for a place to host a wedding, shower, fundraiser, life celebration or any type of event, the party “dream team,” headed by Manager Erica Darragh and Event Coordinator Kim Carney, is at your disposal.  Erica and Kim will create a party as simple or as extravagant as you desire, always bringing that “Wow Factor” into all that they do.  If a max capacity of 150 is too small for your event, no problem!  They do off-site catering as well and can do anything from an office cocktail party, a fun luau or themed event to an elegant grill party with steaks and lobsters!  You dream it, they make it happen!  There is no event too big or too small for them to handle and everything from carving stations, to gorgeous flowers and centerpieces, amazing desserts and specialty drinks are handled to meet your individual specifications.  The Temperance House has catered many wonderful off-site charity events too.  In fact, every year they cater a fundraiser for their own personal charity, Pennsylvania Special Olympics.  In the past 8 years, there has been over $250k raised for this wonderful cause!  The 9th Annual Fundraiser will be held on June 20th, 2012 at the Makefield Highland Golf Course.  If you need details or want to participate, please call Erica at 215-860-9975.

Something that is unique to The Temperance House and a favorite among cigar aficionados is their cigar, cognac and scotch selections.  They also play host to many cigar events throughout the year and it’s the perfect place for the guys to have a special night of cigars, food and a scotch tasting.  You can even book one of their 5 private rooms for your smoking pleasure!  It’s perfect for an upscale bachelor party or guys night out.  There are not many places that cater to the cigar lovers but The Temperance House certainly does, offering a fine in-house selection.  If you prefer a special brand of cigar to smoke in the tavern, there are also local smoke shops within walking distance.  The inn upstairs is the perfect place for an overnight or weekend stay for people traveling through the area, or even just a quiet get-away.  The Temp’s 13 nicely appointed rooms are completely remodeled, comfortable and inviting.  These spacious rooms all have private baths and are ideal for wedding parties.
