This is the one night of the year that I’m guaranteed to come home with 1) green beer and/or Guinness in my stomach 2) green glitter somewhere in my hair 3) GREAT stories.
And since you’ve found your way here, I’m guessing you’re in search of places to raise a pint in honour of Ireland too! So let’s get to it:
James and the Giant is playing live, and a pub is never a bad place to spend St Patrick’s, but Shannon’s isn’t stopping at that – they’re throwing the 3rd annual Saint Patrick’s Day Parade! Everyone who’s got the St Patty’s Day spirit is welcome to parade through downtown sharing the holiday spirit – and of course, finishing up at the pub when you’re done.
When St Patrick’s Day is a Monday, what do you do? Celebrate Friday, Saturday, Sunday or Monday? Tavern has solved the problem – they’re just going to party every one of those nights!
Get your green clubbing gear on – DJ Roy is playing until 2am, and the best costume wins a “Pot O’Gold” of $100!
Other spots to check out:
Green beer will be flowing Monday at their St Patrick’s Day party – along with other surprise green drink specials you’ll have to visit to see!
Again, hard to go wrong with a pub as a place to spend St Patty’s Day. Finn’s has a fab pub menu and a solid selection of pints on tap to put you in the proper spirit.
If you’re over green beer, try honouring Ireland in a more understated way by spending some time in the whisky lounge. I know, we all think whisky = Scottish, but the Irish make it too!
Tomorrow on the blog: what to wear so you avoid those pesky St Patrick’s Day pinches.
