Star & Shamrock Open for Christmas

In town for Christmas? If so, you should really consider heading down to join the party at Star & Shamrock. See the press release below for full details:

H Street NE’s Star and Shamrock to Open Christmas Day; Will Offer Special Menu and Holiday Entertainment

Star and Shamrock, H Street NE’s only Irish-Jewish fusion tavern, announced today that they will be open for business on Christmas Day, for the Third Annual Xmas Mitzvah!  Once again offering patrons a place to take a break from all of the family time.

“A typical Jewish Christmas Day is spent watching movies and eating Chinese food—in my childhood that was generally the only kind of restaurants that were open,” says owner Jason Feldman. “We thought it would be fun to offer up our updated version of enjoying movies and Chinese fare.”

In addition to Star and Shamrock’s usual menu of sandwiches, wraps and crowd favorites like “The Clogger,” they will offer some Asian inspired specials including:

1.    Kung Pao Pastrami

2.    Corned Beef Fried Rice

3.    Turkey #2 Eggrolls (Turkey, Bacon, Muenster w/ranch dipping sauce.)

4.    Clogger Eggrolls (Beef Brisket, Bacon, Provolone w/BBQ dipping sauce.)

5.    Reuben Eggrolls (Corned Beef, Sauerkraut, Swiss w/Russian dipping sauce.)

Yes, you can order by number if you’d like.

Keep your mug full with Hot Green Tea Toddies, or if you prefer a Hop Manna Draft from Shmaltz Brewing, dozens of craft beers, Bourbon, Whiskey or Rye infusions and a full bar to help keep your family events “friendly”.

Entertainment will include a variety of Christmas movies including Miracle on 34th Street, A Christmas Story, and many more, customer requests invited.

Star and Shamrock’s Christmas Day hours are 11am to 1:30am. They’re located at 1341 H Street, NE. Find them online at and on twitter at @StarShamrock.

Are they making their employees work on Christmas? That's really awful.

Unless their employees are Jewish, in which case no big deal. Xmas isn't a sacred day for everyone, and I don't think there's anything particularly "awful" about making people work during it. If they are vehemently religious, they can seek religious accommodation.

Sounds yummy.

And over at POP they have a lot of info on other H St places open today and/or tomorrow. Some good choices.

I'm aware that not everyone celebrates Christmas. I doubt that everyone working today at Star and Shammy is Jewish. I can't believe they are amkung those people work on Christmas.

Anon 12:48pm -- Keeping in mind that some people there working on Xmas does not constitute evidence that the proprietors are *making* anyone work that day, do you have any evidence at all that they're making anyone work on Xmas? Or are you just trolling?

Alcoholics need somewhere to go, Christmas or not.

It's nice when one troll picks up the line of another troll to keep it going. They do know it's xmas-time at all.

I went there yesterday for a beer. Nice crowd.

And yes, the employees seemed happy to be there.

I'll never go there again knowing that they made their employees work on Christmas. That's about as low as you can good.

Thanks for the information!
