Jameson's Surpasses Facebook Goal--Hosts Luau This Saturday

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL)

This Saturday night, July 11, means it's time to say thank you to everyone who made it happen. This party-night thank you event will come from everyone at Jameson's Irish Public House and Restaurant in downtown Waterloo. And, if you listen very closely, you just might be able to hear Jameson's owner, Buck Clark, saying, ‘Step aside, Ashton and Larry, Jameson's Pub followers have also arrived.'

While superstar Iowa actor, Ashton Kutcher, and CNN's Larry King, fought  their highly publicized new media followers battle on Twitter recently, Buck Clark set his sights on one of the other powerhouse communities of social media networking---Facebook. http://www.facebook.com/waterlooiowa  

Buck Clark put the word out----Jameson's, http://www.jamesonspublichouse.com at 310 East 4th Street, would be seeking 1000 loyal Facebook fans. It didn't take long for the devoted members of the Facebook community to spread the word.

Jameson's quickly reached and surpassed its 1000 Facebook fans goal, so, now it's pay back time, with what Buck Clark is calling a 1000 Facebook Fans Luau.

Remember, the 3rd annual Irish Fest http://www.IowaIrishFest.com is still some three weeks away, so Clark sees this event as a nice tune up for the what is the largest Irish festival in Iowa, July 31-August 2, also in downtown Waterloo.

Someone will win a trip to the Bahamas at Saturday night's July 11, Luau, which starts at 5 PM, and will feature a variety of food and music. Free beer, while it lasts, will kick things off at 5.

Mike Staebell of the popular local musical group, WAGG, will perform, starting at 6. There will be NO cover charge, in appreciation of the 1000 fans of Jameson's on Facebook. For $ 5.00, the night will feature all-you-can eat burgers and brats, along with Mai Tais and Mojitos.

Yes, I will make an appearance as a guest-something. I suppose that will  mean guest server, waiter or bartender. We'll just have to wait and see what assignment I get for the night.

It's the 1000 Facebook Fans Luau, Saturday night at Jameson's, 310 East 4th Street, in downtown Waterloo. For more information, contact Jameson's at 319-233-0701 or online at: http://www.jamesonspublichouse.com
