Next profile up in our continuing mission to shine a light on local establishments that are using this “down” time to reach out creatively or make positive changes is the Celtic Ray Public House, which is doing both!

They recently replaced their floor and recorded a cool video of the process that gives us a “can’t wait to see it in person” kind of a feeling. Check it out!

Like many eateries in the area, they’re offering take out and delivery, but they’re putting a bit of an Earth Month twist on it (until May 1), in conjunction with Redwood Empire Whiskey!

Every takeout and delivery order made earns a chance to win a deluxe goodie basket that includes the following:

From the Redwood Empire: Emerald Giant Rye Whiskey and Pipe Dream Bourbon Whiskey; from Raeburn: Russian River Valley Chardonnay and Russian River Valley Rosé; from Benham's: Sonoma Dry Gin; plus a t-shirt, coozies, and a wildflower-seeded label that can be planted!

(Almost) best of all, if you buy a bottle of—or a drink made with—Redwood Whiskey, you will get your name put in to the drawing twice! For added incentive, for every bottle sold, Redwood Empire Whiskey will plant a tree. What better way to celebrate Earth day than by helping to plant trees?

Celtic Ray will draw for the winner on May 1, 2020. You can order online at or by phone at 941-916-9115.

As if all that wasn’t enough, if you’re missing their popular trivia nights, you can now experience them via Facebook Live, Wednesdays at 7:00 pm EST. 

Visit their Facebook page and their website for more information on all of these great goings-on, and more!
