A Taste of the Emerald Isle
But first, a history lesson. It all started with the efforts of a person named Patrick to convert the pagans of Ireland to Christianity. He would later earn the moniker of Saint when he was canonized. The day of March 17th commemorates the day he arrived upon the shores of the Emerald isle. But enough of that! If you’re wondering where to go and what do, read on for the best places to celebrate the patron saint of Ireland.
O’Shea’s Block Party at the LINQ
A parade down the LINQ promenade will kick off the celebration! There’ll be leprechauns, stilt walkers, bagpipers, and more. Head inside to O’Shea’s for some live music from The Hooligans Darby O’Gill and Roxy Gum. The LED Drumline and Tilted Kilt are also scheduled to join the party. The LINQ promenade will be overflowing with beer trucks and portable bars from Guinness, Leinenkugel, Heineken, Jameson and more, so you will have a hard time running out of libations. To top it all off, the High Roller and LINQ fountains will turn green to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. What are you waiting for?
