MAPLEWOOD, NJ — To add some Irish cheer to the week, St. James's Gate Publick House is having a special this weekend: Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day.

With the changing of the leaves and the turning of the calendar page, OctoberFest is around the corner. Details are coming soon, and there’s sure to be delicious German sausages, German foods, and beers on tap.
