ASHLAND — St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in the area will include a Friday evening dinner at Rock Springs Winery & Vineyard in Carter County, a celebration from afternoon into evening Saturday at Ashland’s Chimney Corner Café and another on Sunday at The Lamp Post in Ashland.

The menu for the winery’s holiday event includes Dublin Dip with pita chips, wedge salad with ranch dressing, Pesto Chicken with alfredo sauce and a vegetable medley and chocolate Guinness cake.

Wine-tastings begin at 6:30 p.m. and dinner will be served at 7 p.m. Attendees must call (606) 923-9085 by noon today for reservations.

The annual St. Patrick’s Day celebration at Chimney Corner at 1624 Carter Ave. will feature a menu with corned beef and cabbage, reuben sandwiches, Irish stew and traditional dessert from 4 p.m. to midnight Saturday. Entertainment for the evening will be provided by Sister Reddenhair.
