IRISH AT HEART

By   /   July 3, 2011  /   Comments

Albany’s newest Irish Pub, the Cask & Kilt, opened to a huge crowd Friday at 2610 Dawson Road in the former Gumby’s location. Vikki Gavre, Michael Gavre and Cynthia Sacca-Goodman are fulfilling a longtime dream by becoming publicans, and will employ 22 people. “The name Cask & Kilt came from this crazy idea we had about making the high-top tables out of whiskey casks, and having waitresses wearing kilts, and so that’s what we named the place,” Vikki Gavre said. Fish and chips is on the daily menu and local cook Felton Riggins’ daily specials will include prime rib and Irish favorites shepherd’s pie, banger’s and mash, corned beef and cabbage, and hamburger steak.
