Today, Seamus McDaniel’s, our family’s favorite restaurant, and home of the best burger in St. Louis, is celebrating their 30th birthday. The mayor even declared it Seamus McDaniel’s Day in St. Louis! And even though it’s Sunday, a day they’re normally closed, they had a big party…”Cheers and Beers to 30 Years!” Of course I had to stop by with Chickadee while the rest of the children were at choir practice and have a pint:
It’s hard to believe, but Ryan and I have been eating there for almost half of those 30 years. I’ll never forget how awesome it was to live within walking distance when we were first married and new St. Louis residents. We’ve been to Seamus more times than I can count over the years, but here are a few of my favorite recent Seamus memories:
This is a bittersweet celebration, of course, because Jim wasn’t able to attend. But his memory and hard work building this establishment with his wife are always evident, and his spirit lives on in his family…I just wish he could have raised a glass to the next 30 years with all of the folks celebrating there today!
