@JoelECarlson: Hello everyone! Welcome to the TwitterREVIEW of the St.Paul Irish pub called @The_Liffey. Tweeting done by the manager, Jay. Lets go!
Jay: Thanks Joel, it’s a pleasure being “here” with you.
Q – #1 To start off with Jay, how did @The_Liffey get it’s name, and how long has it been around?
Jay: The Liffey is named after the famed River Liffey in Ireland wich flows through the center of Dublin.
We’ve been open for over 8 years
Q – #2 Great. For people NEW to @The_Liffey, where are you located so that people can get an idea as to where to find you?
Jay: The Liffey is located on the SW corner of West 7th & Kellogg in downtown St. Paul, kitty-corner from the Xcel Energy Center
Q – #3 Nice location! Lets now talk about the latest BUZZ about @The_Liffey, the makeover/remodel. When does that start?
Jay: Very exciting news! We are planning a full-scale remodel inside the pub starting July 15. The new interor combines a sense of
place and spirit while the focus will be “colorfully cozy”. It was designed and will be installed by native Irish craftsmen and
should take only 10 days to complete! Along with the remodel we are currently busy creating a new menu to compliment the the look.
Q – #4 Awesome! So will you be closed during this time of construction, and will the rooftop Terrace change as well?
Jay: We will also be featuring new drink specials, wine list, & happy hour specials…our outside dining area “The Terrace” will still be
open (weather permitting) during construction, and we hope to re-open the pub by July 28th.
Q – #5 Good to know! You mentioned Jay that there would be some changes to the menu. What items will probably stay?
Jay: Our core menu items such as our Artichoke Dip, Reuben and Fish & Chips will of course stay but may get a bit of a “tweak”, for example
we will be making our own sauerkraut in-house for our Reuben – we are always trying to improve our game!
Q – #6 Ahhh! Great idea! Does @The_Liffey ever offer brunch or breakfast for it’s customers?
Jay: The Liffey is open for breakfast daily 7am-1030am M-F and 730am-1030am weekends – we also offer our special Brunch menu from
11am-2pm on Sat and Sun – we are currently revamping our Brunch menu in conjuction with the new-look Liffey – expect to see
traditional favorites as well as some unique offerings including fun “brunch” drink specials!
Q – #7 Lots of NEW things going on and to expect at @The_Liffey! As far as the staff goes, are there currently any job openings?
Jay: We are always looking for good people and personalities to help us deliver our mission to give our guests a memorable experience…
so they cannot wait to come back! We always encourage people to apply, but we have a solid staff for the rest of the summer.
@JoelECarlson: Good to know. Thank you Jay for your time and comments about @The_Liffey. An exciting month of July for you and the pub for sure!
