Live music is a huge improvement on canned music, which takes up valuable pantry space and often spoils into noxious free jazz. Keep it fresh with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get two tickets to the 2012 Rory Miggins Irish Stew Cook-Off and Music Festival at Lucky's Pub noon–6 p.m. on February 11 (a $20 value).
The 2012 Rory Miggins Irish Stew Cook-off and Music Festival delights noshers and jig dancers alike with a full day celebrating Irish cuisine and culture. With all proceeds going to the 53rd Annual Houston St. Patrick's Parade, the cook-off features artisanal cooks whipping up myriad dishes, with prizes given out for best Irish stew, Irish dessert, chicken, and abstract chicken dance. Between bites of secret recipes, guests can enter raffles or gather round the outdoor stage to groove to the Irish rock band Blaggards or sing along to traditional Irish tunes played by The Jig is Up before watching dancers or sprinting through the Guinness relay.
