Corned beef and cabbage has become synonymous with St. Patrick’s Day.
But you might have heard this is an American creation.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day and weekend! Here in Hoboken, many restaurants and Irish bars are offering corned beef and cabbage sandwiches for the holiday, but you can also find treats like Irish cream cold brews at coffee shops, and even the bagel shops are getting into the act.
D’s Soul Full Cafe at 918 Willow Ave. showed off a mighty tasty corned beef sandwich along with their usual egg sandwiches on social media on Friday morning.
Down the block, Finnegan’s at 734 Willow also promises to offer up a tasty corned beef special.
Meanwhile, Moran’s at Fifth and Garden says, “This Friday, our melt-in-your-mouth corned beef & cabbage dinner is back! We’ll be open at 3 p.m. for St. Paddy’s Day festivities, ft. the best pours of Guinness on this side of the Atlantic.”
Sadly, you can’t pop into Stinky Sullivan’s on Washington Street anymore, or Kelly’s up the block. But you can try the numerous old-time Irish bars on and near First Street for some Irish vibes. Check out the themed drinks at the Shannon Lounge.
Given the great number of Catholics of Irish descent in the Peoria Diocese, St. Patrick’s Day is naturally an “occasion for joy-filled celebrations,” the 2023 dispensation says. “Having considered our past practices and the current circumstances, inasmuch as it would serve the spiritual good of the faithful,” Bishop Louis Tylka has granted a dispensation from the obligation of abstinence from meat on March 17, 2023.
Those taking advantage of this “get out of fish on Friday” card are “exhorted to undertake a work of charity, an exercise of piety, or an act of comparable penance on some other occasion during the third week of Lent,” the diocese said.
Thomas Zinkula, bishop of the Davenport Diocese, issued a similar dispensation. Those who wish to make use of it also are “encouraged to abstain from meat on some other day as part of their penitential practices during Lent,” the bishop’s dispensation said.
It falls on a Friday during Lent, when the faithful abstain from eating meat, so there’s no celebrating with the traditional corned beef.
You’ll get no dispensation from the Chicago Archdiocese either, but there is a bit of a loophole.
Cardinal Blase Cupich said if Catholics find themselves at an event for the holiday where meat is served, they can substitute another form of penance or perform some act that helps the poor.
