Happy Mum's Day
The annual Mother's Day Buffet at McCarthy's Red Stag Pub has become a tradition with many of their patrons. I like to use it as an opportunity to celebrate the arrival of Spring along with all of the Mum's out there.
HAPPY MUM'S DAY • 2 x 2 CARD HANDOUTS
The Great Irish Steak Out
For those who just can't get enough steak... Annual September event at McCarthy's Red Stag Pub and Whiskey Bar.
Fáilte Festival • A St. Patrick's Day Celebration
Unused artwork for the first annual Fáilte Festival held at the Charles Brown Icehouse in Bethlehem, PA. Only pieces used to advertise the festival were the digital banner ads created for use on Lehigh Valley Style's website.
Holiday Cocktail Trail Map
When I created the downtown Bethlehem map first used in the Harvest Festival brochure, I retained the rights to reformat the map for the different events that happen in Bethlehem.
NO FOOLIN' EASTER DAY BRUNCH
The Infamous Finnigan McCarthy's Wake
Annual Robbie Burns Night
An annual celebration of Scotland's National Bard, Robert Burns. Formal dinner and Scottish single-malt whisky sampling.
Doctor Who Christmas Party
After years of petitioning for a Doctor Who themed Christmas party at McCarthy's, I finally got my wish in 2016! It was awesome... Created all promotional materials along with building and designing prop pieces to deck out McCarthy's Great Room in time for the event. You can see more elements on my personal projects page.
DOCTOR WHO • "DALEK" CHRISTMAS TREE
All elements of the decorations were related to Christmas episodes of Doctor Who. The bar became a newspaper stand, the Christmas tree a Dalek, and guests were encouraged to dress in Doctor Who Cosplay.
CINCO DE MCMAYO
Poster and promotional pieces to advertise the Cinco de Mayo ("McMayo") party at McCarthy's Red Stag Pub and Whiskey Bar in Bethlehem, PA. Combined Mexican and Irish imagery to create a unique character and coined the "Cinco de McMayo" title.
Family Style Viking Dinner
CALLING ALL VIKINGS to party like it's 999!
FAMILY STYLE VIKING DINNER
The Viking themed dinner that never happened...
An interactive history presentation discussing beer and brewing in the United Kingdom during the 8th - 11th centuries, presented by beer historian and master brewer, Christopher Bowen.
Tastings of authentic brews made by Viking methods, and a King's Table Banquet featuring goose, smoked fish, turkey, rack of lamb, roasted vegetables, and traditional breads.
For the lighthearted posters and other materials, I went and created a crazy band of marauding McCarthy's Vikings in their very own dragon boat.
