Visitors Reminded Murphys Irish Day Canceled
In compliance with the latest public health agency guidelines, the Murphys Business Association is advising visitors that many businesses currently have limited operations and or hours. We wouldn’t want you to be disappointed so please verify that any business you are hoping to visit is able to accommodate your expectations. Our businesses are striving to protect our community by following the guidance to limit physical interactions and encouraging social distancing. Given those recommendations, many tasting rooms and restaurants will only be open for pick up or takeout orders. Those retailers & other businesses that are open may have reduced hours or other limitations.
With the cancellation of Murphys Irish Day, we are no longer planning any special activities for downtown on Saturday, March 21st. There will be no handwashing stations or special provisions for crowds since crowd gatherings are actively being discouraged.
As you may realize, Murphys Irish Day has historically been an important day for Murphys downtown businesses’ economic wellbeing which means some of your favorite businesses will be struggling without your patronage.
How to Help Murphys Businesses
Here’s how you can help. We encourage you to continue the patronage of your favorite Murphys restaurants, wineries, bars, and retail businesses by purchasing online or by phone for pick up or delivery. Gift certificate purchases are also a great option. Most Murphys businesses are posting their new strategies for sales on their social media pages.
Please find a local business either from this website or from the Calaveras Visitors Bureau’s website and click on their social media links. If information on how you can purchase goods and services is not available on their Facebook page, please call their business number for information. We are recommending checking on business Facebook pages first so as not to overwhelm businesses with phone calls.
Calaveras Winery & Restaurant Deals
In addition, the Calaveras Winegrape Alliance has compiled a comprehensive list of their restaurant and winery members offering special services and discounts. Some are offering amazing specials, so be sure to follow the link to see what’s on offer. Please check with individual businesses to confirm as details may change.
In this time of uncertainty, we ask anyone thinking of coming into downtown Murphys to please stay home and take care of yourself if you’re not feeling well or have been exposed to anyone else feeling unwell.
We hope you’re inspired to purchase from Murphys businesses from afar, keeping our community and your family and friends safe. Thank you so much for your continued support of the Murphys community. We look forward to seeing you back here after this crisis is over. Please stay safe, and may the luck of the Irish be with you.
