Families pay a fee for their children, but other resources are necessary.

Shelf Ice Brewfest After Party, Sat. Feb 7th, 8pm, Continue the party at McGinnis Irish Pub, with live Celtic Music by Keenan Baxter, — hear celtic music like you've never heard before. McGinnis Pub is located in a quaint older building with lots of charm and a patio with gas fireplace. There’s a separate bar area with nice selection of beers. The draw is the Irish dishes adapted from Terry’s mother’s recipes including Irish soda bread, corned beef and cabbage, shepherd’s pie, and bangers and mash. You’ll also enjoy their unique Appetizers like the Irish egg rolls (corned beef and cabbage egg rolls) and dan-o-fries (loaded french fries.) And, it's not too often you’ll find a restaurant that has some vegetarian friendly items - like an veggie burger or try their burger with Irish White Cheddar Cheese!

“At the Age of 10, Keenan was influenced by the seeing the show “Spirit of the Dance,” at Star Plaza Theatre in Merrillville when he bought the cd and listened to it over and over. Now, this sensational Celtic composer from Valparaiso created his own Celtic album ranging dynamically from the most sensitive and touching Irish songs to hard-hitting reels and jigs. Although Keenan is not from the homeland of Ireland, nor is he Irish, he began composing his own Celtic songs about 7 years ago.”
