WILDWOOD, N.J., March 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The newest Wildwood restaurant sensation, Cattle 'N Clover will reach for Guinness History – as in Guinness Book of World Records – at the Inaugural Wildwood St. Patrick's Day Block Party, on March 17 from 9am10pm, on Pacific Avenue - between Spicer and Lincoln Avenues. Bear witness as an Official Guinness Judge presides over the construction of a scale tipping, 1,790-pound Shepherd's Pie, an accomplishment that will solidify Wildwood's rightful spot in this world-renowned book. Following the judging process, for a small donation, spectators will be able to sample the mammoth meat pie, with all proceeds going to local children's charities.

The highlight of the evening will be the performance by Pentatonix, NBC's The Sing-Off Season 3 Champions. The Sony recording a cappella group will take the stage at 8:30pm and dazzle the crowd as they push the limits of the human voice to the extreme. Rounding out the concert will be performances by Irish rock band Burning Bridget Cleary and local favorites The Sensational Soul Cruisers and Hydeaway.

To kick off this celebration of heritage and community, the Block Party will open at 9am with Kegs 'N Eggs. For a $10 donation, you can start your day off the right way with a hot breakfast buffet. Throughout the day the street will be lined with authentic Irish vendors, peddling everything from whiskey kits to Irish clothing to shamrock shaped glasses. Likewise, stilt-walkers will be roaming the street, with balloon sculpting and face painting available for the children or the kid at heart. Don't forget to check out the grand opening of Cattle 'N Clover, on the corner of Pacific and Spicer Avenues, a Steakhouse with an Irish Soul. There, you will be able to dine on traditional Irish cuisine as well as sign up for your chance to win a trip to Ireland, courtesy of Cattle 'N Clover and 98.7 The Coast.

On March 17, everyone is Irish, so come and join the party full of food, friends and fun - it will be the place to be on St. Patrick's Day.
