  • 5 pm – 10 pm, Incidental Music Open Mic! Outside at The Shillelagh Tavern – The Shillelagh Tavern has perhaps the only in-person open mic, which takes place outside.

The open mic is acoustic, with limited amplification, and performers are encouraged to bring their own microphones for performance (though the microphone is sanitized in between performances). Performers are, of course, also advised to wear their mask, and follow social distancing guidelines.
