Taveras, Cianci, others to mark 20th anniversary of Patrick’s Pub
Patrick’s Pub, the Smith Hill landmark in Providence, is due to celebrate its 20th anniversary this Saturday, and plenty of politicos will be on hand, according to a news release from City Councilor Terry Hassett:
“Independently owned and operated businesses are the backbone of the local economy,” added Hassett, who represents Ward 12 and the Smith Hill neighborhood. “They provide jobs, stimulate economic growth, and help foster a sense of community in our neighborhoods.”
Councilman Hassett also stressed the positive impact Patrick’s Pub has had on the Smith Street Commercial Corridor. “The continued success of Patrick’s has helped anchor this business district and has helped promote Smith Street as a commercial destination. I was extremely proud to help Patrick’s receive a storefront improvement grant, which improved the appearance of the storefront and provided continuity to the streetscape.”
The anniversary celebration will feature live performances of traditional Irish music and dance. Councilman Hassett will be joined by Senator Maryellen Goodwin and Representative John J. McCauley, who also represent Smith Hill, and many other dignitaries including Mayor Angel Taveras, former Mayor Buddy Cianci, Senate President Teresa Paiva Weed and House Speaker Gordon Fox. The event will begin at 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 3rd, at Patrick’s Pub, 381 Smith Street in Providence.
