    The Turtle Club can always be counted on for delicious libations and a great atmosphere. They’re adding a traditional Irish menu which puts it at the top of our list.

    Willie McBride’s is a great place to listen to live music and they’ll have Irish music playing all day long. Definitely a great way to add to the spirit of the day.

     The Stewed Cow can be counted on for an extensive whiskey drink menu and some tasty “saloon bites.” And come on, who doesn’t love a mechanical bull?

    Maxwell’s has no cover charge from 10AM-noon so it’s a great option to start off your morning uptown and then make your way down Washington.

    The Brass Rail is a great change of atmosphere from some of the traditional St. Patty’s spots. Enjoy a beer or a cocktail here before making your way around downtown.

    Tony Boloney’s let us know via Instagram that they’re getting their green pizza ready for Saturday. Take the best pizza and town and add “a wee bit-o-whisky” and “a wee bit-o-4 leaf clover” and you’re left with the perfect Leprecon food stop.
