While Bryant Park makes way for French culture, a one night festival highlighting the shared histories of Celts from France and Ireland takes over Connolly's Pub. The spectacularly fun to say Interceltic Fest Noz brings music, dancing and lots of drinking to the midtown bar from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m. tonight, "celebrating the common heritage, traditions, culture, and story of immigration of Celtic people of NYC."

The Fest Noz (Breton for "night festival") promises performances by both Irish and French groups, including The Mickey Fins, Armel An Héjer and some ceili, traditional Irish dancing, on the bar's proper stage. The bar also boasts a decent beer selection, including Kilkenny Irish Cream Ale, Stronbow Cider and Innis & Gunn plus classic Irish dishes like Fish & Chips, Beef Stew and Irish Smoked Salmon.

Entrance for the Interceltic Fest Noz is $10 for non-members. [Interceltic Fest Noz alert brought to you by Interceltic Fest Noz expert Andy Newman / City Room]
