Mc Fadden’s Restaurant and Saloon is in the only red brick building on historic Ionia Ave. While topped by matching gargoyles, this local watering hole is far from Gothic. Game night, birthday parties, weddings, and after-work get togethers attract downtowners to this Irish-style pub. Choose from 10 different drafts and pub grub sliders like French dip, pulled pork and Southern-fried chicken. The chef is developing several new sharing plates for Art Prize. They will be priced from $5 to $10 and delivered to your table in 20 minutes or less to maximize your ArtPrize browsing. Happy Hour will be extended during Art Prize so look for half-off beer, wine, and call liquor throughout the festival.

The ArtPrize you’ll see

As a first time venue for ArtPrize, Mc Fadden’s offers exposed brick and colorful wood details as a backdrop for the work of four artists. You will see Jack Doorn’s plaster carving entitled, “Oops,” Cynthia Stephens’ “Celtic DNA 1.3,”  Melissa Cooper-Prince’s  “Till Death Do Us Part,” and Bountom Vongkaysone’s, “Water Color” in oil.
