The Brick District Association and Beks are hoping area residents will pass on corned beef and cabbage on March 17 and opt, instead, for burgers and bratwurst as they host a fundraiser to support the new organization.
St. Patty's Day Beer, Brats and Burgers will feature a buffet of brats and hamburgers with all of the fixings - beer sold separately - from 4-6 p.m. on St. Patrick's Day. Proceeds from the event will be used to help the Brick District merchant association promote Fulton's downtown business area. Tickets are $10 in advance at Beks, Center Court and Smockingbird's or $15 at the door.
"(The Brick District) doesn't have any money, so I volunteered to host a fundraiser," said Beks owner Gary Vaught. "I'm just cooking up a bunch of brats and burgers and I'm building a big bar so we can have everything you could ever think about putting on a brat or a burger."
