St. Patrick’s Day at Mission Inn
St. Patrick’s Day is a widely celebrated and largely misinterpreted holiday. St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland, known for spreading the word of Catholicism, and for his affinity for the Shamrock as a symbol. In Ireland, St. Patrick’s Day still holds important religious significance, but much of the United States has adopted the holiday as an opportunity to celebrate all things Irish! This year is no exception and with St. Patrick’s Day falling on a Sunday, it’s the perfect opportunity to indulge in an Irish-themed Sunday brunch. La Hacienda at Mission Inn is offering a St. Patrick’s Day brunch menu that will make you giddy as a leprechaun, especially if you opt in for the endless champagne or take advantage of the 50% off Guiness Stout Beer! This St. Patrick’s Day, don’t miss out and be green with envy – check out the menu and make your reservation today!
