“Wearin’ o’ the Green” for St. Patrick’s Day in Walworth County

St. Patrick's Day

Everyone’s a little bit Irish on St. Patrick’s Day…! Walworth County is no different, so come celebrate with a variety of ways to show off your green attire, while enjoying the ever popular corned beef & cabbage, shamrock cupcakes, and a mug or two of green beer, plus a few other surprises mixed in.

Start early and get yourself ready for the big day, as on Sunday, March 12, the Delavan Lions Club will once again be serving up their annual St. Patrick’s Day Corned Beef & Cabbage Dinner at the Village Supper Club (1725 S. Shore Drive, Delavan) from 11:30am to 7pm. Expect all the trimmings with this, from succulent corned beef, sweetly steamed cabbage, Irish potatoes, carrots, horseradish, baked chicken, to fresh rye bread with butter. Adults $12 / Children ages 6-12 $6 / Children ages 5 and under Free. Going 54 years strong, this is an annual event not to be missed!

Another early temptation on Sunday, March 12, is Irish Fest at Hawk’s View Golf Club (7377 Krueger Road, Lake Geneva). Corned beef, cabbage and carrots, as well as baked chicken, will whet your appetite for all things Irish, while being entertained by the Evan & Tom Leahy Band and the Trinity Irish Dancers. Adults $15 / Seniors $12. Something to tempt all the senses and it’s never too early to get your Irish on!

Looking for an entire weekend of green? Lake Lawn Resort (2400 E. Geneva Street, Delavan) has plenty of it planned for the holiday weekend! Friday, March 17 through Sunday, March 19, they will offer all things Irish from breakfast through to dinner. Start with O’Malley’s Breakfast Skillet, then corned beef & cabbage for lunch, a Creme de Menthe Andes Candies Chocolate Mint Cupcake as an afternoon treat, and Guinness-braised lamb shank with all the trimmings finishes it off for dinner. There’s sure to be something green in a mug found later on in the evening as well!

Celebrate shamrocks and shenanigans during Crafted Americana’s St. Patrick’s Day specials from Friday, March 17 through Saturday, March 18. From lunch offerings of Irish poundies, Guinness fish & chips, and reuben sandwiches, to dinner plates of traditional corned beef & cabbage, shepherd’s pie and bangers & mash, you’re sure to find something Irish to your liking! Late night from 10p to midnight, top off the day with reuben sliders. Put on your green and make the scene at Crafted Americana, at The Ridge (W4240 Highway 50, Lake Geneva).

Popeye’s is setting aside their usual All-You-Can-Eat Fish Fry on Friday, March 17, for their favorite celebration of the year – St. Patrick’s Day. Specials start at $3.99, with corned beef & cabbage starting at $5.99 and offering three portion sizes to choose from. There’s no excuse to not get enough here, and Popeye’s guarantees green beer and lots o’ fun!

Whatever your tastes or ethnicity, you can’t deny being a little bit Irish on St. Patrick’s Day and celebrating it in Walworth County. Come show us your way to wear green! For a full list of events, visit the Walworth County Visitors Bureau’s Calendar of Events at VisitWalworthCounty.com.

Shop Local Saturday: Cornerstone Shop & Gallery

Join us every Saturday as we feature a store in the Lake Geneva area!  Get the scoop behind the unique shops throughout Walworth County, and find out what makes them stand above the rest.

This week, we interviewed Karin Bennett from Cornerstone Shop & Gallery in downtown Lake Geneva.  If you’ve ever shopped in downtown Lake Geneva, chances are you’ve stopped in this beautiful home decor & gift store.  With 10,000 sq. feet of gifts, art, clothing, home decor, and more, this unique store offers something for everyone (our favorite is the amazing aroma of their candle ‘room!’). Read on to find out more about this iconic Lake Geneva shop.

Cornerstone

Q:  How did you get your start in Lake Geneva? 
A:  We opened Artopia Shop & Gallery in Lake Geneva in 2004. Artopia featured American artisan jewelry, glass, ceramics, and exotic woods and custom furniture. We were looking for a location to expand, and purchased the Cornerstone Shoppe (as it was formerly known) in 2007.

Q:  How did you choose the name “Cornerstone Shop & Gallery?”
A:  The store was established in 1988 as The Cornerstone Shoppe. We changed the name to Cornerstone Shop & Gallery when we purchased the business and merged Artopia into this location. We still carry an extensive array of artisan items, as well as original art and prints from local artists.

IMG_5261Q:  What kind of items/gifts can we find in your store?
A:  We feature 10,000 square feet of home accessories and accent pieces; furniture and décor; baby and wedding gifts; women’s clothing, jewelry and accessories; fine linens and tableware, including Casafina, Juliska and Vietri stoneware, Simon Pearce hand blown glass, and decorative and functional metalware by Mariposa, Julia Knight and Beatriz Ball; artisan items and original art; as well as cards and gifts for all occasions, books, Lake Geneva and nautical items, and more.

Q:  What sets you apart from the competition?
A:  We are a lifestyle destination. Our every-changing gift and home décor selections and artistic displays are designed to spark your creativity and inspire your imagination! We pride ourselves on our unique merchandise selections and personalized service.

Q:  What’s happening at the store – do you have any events/specials coming up?
A:  Nationally known Illustrator and Lake Geneva native Neal Aspinall will be in for a print signing on May 23rd, and Renowned Artist William Nelson is joining us on July 4th. We’re hosting a cookie decorating demo and tea tasting on June 6th in conjunction with Lake Geneva Restaurant Week, and have a Garnier-Thiebaut Trunk Show scheduled for June 20th. Other exciting summer events are being finalized now; visit our website at www.cornerstoneshoppe.com for the latest store news, specials and upcoming events.

Q:  Everything in your store is beautiful…but what is the “must have” item from Cornerstone Shop? 
A:  Tabletop, entertaining pieces and candles are popular year-round, as well as gift selections. Lake Geneva and nautical items are popular with the summer crowd, and holiday décor is our top seller in the fall.  (Their holiday displays are BEAUTIFUL – if you haven’t checked them out in the Christmas season, make sure you do this year!)

IMG_5203Q:  Do you ship, and can people order from your store online?
A:  Yes, we ship to customers across the country, and offer online shopping for a variety of products. Our e-commerce offerings are just a small portion of what’s available in the store, but we add new items regularly.

Q:  Do you offer gift wrapping?
A:  Complimentary gift wrapping is available.
