St. Patrick’s Day is as good an excuse as any for me to don my shamrock-shaped (no, I didn’t say shamrock shake, but I bet you want one now, don’t you!) glasses, my best green dress, hit the (down)town and indulge in some Irish cream- and Guinness-flavoured things and sip on some cool, refreshing green beer and just spread friendly, jolly cheer! This day only comes once a year – here’s a few spots you might like to #finditdowntown for St. Paddy’s day.
Guinness and Jameson are on special, Thistle-Thyme show band is on stage, you could win a Guinness beer fridge, and the McConnell Irish Dancers will have you a-tappin’ your toes.
St. Paddy’s Day Liquidation Sale – All beer must go. No reasonable offer refused. Richard Inman & the Mad Trappers play at 9:00, Andrew Neville & the Poor Choices play at 10:30. Always delicious Mexican cuisine.
All-day entertainment including Nathan Rogers, Dale Brown and the Brady Irish Dancers.
Green beer. Prizes. Free Pizza. Free Lucky Charms cereal.
Indulge in beef stew served in a bread bowl, green beer, St. Paddy’s Day-themed shooters, and be entertained by the Winnipeg Police Pipe Band.
And perhaps if a friendly, neighborhood watering hole isn’t your scene this St. Patrick’s day, perhaps the luck of the Irish at the Tony Award-winning Book of Mormon ticket lottery will be on your side. Arrive at the Centennial Concert Hall 2.5 hours before curtain, and enter to win the chance to purchase tickets for a very reasonable $25. Stay tuned for my review of the show on Thursday!
