Update, Sept. 16, 2018 / During the annual Judd-A-Thon .1K held on the third Sunday in September, Mike McGrath was ready for Sept. 17 with a few familiar accents.

Half way to St. Patrick’s Day is Sept. 17. Quigley’s celebrates 20 years on Nov. 17!

Now through Sept. 19, individuals are welcome to come up with an original slogan to help Quigley’s Irish Pub celebrate its 20th year during daylong festivities on Sat., Nov. 17. The winning slogan will be emblazoned on commemorative t-shirts. Forms to enter are available at Quigley’s Irish Pub, 43 E. Jefferson Ave.

Simply stop by the pub and ask the bartender for a form. Or create your own form, complete with your name and contact info including email, along with the slogan, and drop it off at Quigley’s. Entries must be submitted by Wed., Sept. 19, 2018. 

The individual with the winning slogan will receive two t-shirts and a $50 gift card for Quigley’s as well as bragging rights for coming up with the slogan to be selected by judges Michele Michael and Nancy Quigley, owners of the pub.

“We’re looking for creativity that we hear every day from our fun-loving patrons,” said Quigley. “Be part of history!”

When Quigley’s hosts its 20th birthday bash on Nov. 17, live bands will be featured all day. Commemorative t-shirts will be available for sale.

As the pub wraps up its first 20 memorable years, owners welcome a new slogan for Quigley’s!
