Jameson Irish Whiskey Hosts Inaugural St. Patrick’s Eve Holiday Event, Hosted by Michael Che and Colin Jost

On the heels of the Jameson Irish Whiskey Must be a Jameson campaign,’ Jameson celebrated a new holiday, St. Patrick’s Eve, because ‘a Jameson’ wouldn’t let Leap Year get in the way of a good time.  Celebrity talent, influencers, industry and VIPs gathered at Beast & Butterflies in Times Square in New York at M Social hotel for an all-out green themed celebration. Leap Year stole what would have been the first proper Saturday St. Patrick’s Day in years, so Jameson declared a new unofficial holiday on Saturday, March 16th,  St. Patrick’s Day Eve, teaming up with comedians Colin Jost and Michael Che to encourage revelers 21+ to officially celebrate on the best night of the week.

The night kicked off with sounds by DJ Jus Ske, a flow of themed appetizers and Jameson Irish Whiskey signature cocktails, plus their new Jameson RTD Orange Spritz, with a live viewing of the first-of-its-kind ‘rock drop’ – a version of the famous Times Square Ball drop ‘on the rocks” timed to midnight in Ireland (8pm EST) from the venue’s wrap around patio, to mark the Jameson St. Patrick’s Eve celebrations.

The exciting moment was followed by an incredible, animated full band show and DJ performance by Pee .Wee, aka Anderson Paak. Che and Jost hosted the evening, where they mingled with guests, introduced their pal Anderson’s performance on stage, led a whiskey toast with the crowd of partygoers, and even popped behind the bar to do some Jameson cocktail mixing. The duo certainly elevated the energy of the room, as guests then danced the night away at the lead of Pee .Wee, followed by a closing set by Jus Ske.
