Celtic Music Festival St. Patrick’s Day Party

I like sharing fun things happening with our neighbors.  When I saw this I thought I would share the love!

In honor of St. Patrick’s day aka the most fun green holiday, The Berkeley Ferryboat is having the most amazing Celtic Music Festival! The ferryboat is permanently docked at the SD Maritime Museum http://www.sdmaritime.org/  next to the Star of India.

Come and enjoy some live performances by Raggle Taggle, Jackstraws, Irish step dancers, and many more.  Make sure you come hungry, because the festival will also feature some delicious corned beef and cabbage from 6:30pm-9pm and of course green beer! 

The festivities begin at 6pm on March 17th, St. Patrick’s Day of course!  Tickets are $25 presale and $30 at the door.  For tickets and more information, log onto celtic-con.com.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Drink your green beer responsibly!

Steven Quartly “Romance of The Ages” Event at EC Gallery

On March 7th through 9th, Exclusive Collections Gallery is hosting another great and unique event honoring Steven Quartly.

A little background on Steven Quartly.  A romantic at heart, Steven Quartly embraces the special moments in life through his oil paintings, looking to bring out the romantic in us all. Whether capturing a sentimental meal shared with a loved one, a picturesque European scene where intimacy reverberates across the city, or the “golden hour” light, Quartly’s masterpieces create a special mood not easily forgotten. They embody his values, ideals, spirituality, and appreciation for life, serving as a memoir of his experience. “My work is inspired from our travels,” Quartly says, “my wife and I and our family — and passions of just visions that I have and places that I’ve been and the romance of life.”

The FREE event will take place at 6pm-9pm on Friday and Saturday, March 7-8th and 12pm-5pm on Sunday, March 9th.  You can RSVP by calling 800-599-7111 or email

Want another reason to attend this unique event? Everyone who attends will be entered to win Steven Quartly's art pallette, which he will present at the show!
