St. Patrick’s Day

irishflag.jpg

I’ll admit that normally I go to Savannah for St. Patrick’s Day and drink with the rest of the 300,000+ people who aren’t Irish but, this year, it’s Atlanta. So, don’t let me down ATL!

Of course, the best thing about St. Patrick’s Day is Guinness! Brilliant! But, there are a few other little things like a PARADE! I love parades! The St. Patrick’s Parade will travel down Peachtree St. and end up at Underground Atlanta.

Then, there’s the St. Patrick’s Festival, March 16-18, which includes, vendor$, food and free entertainment at Underground Atlanta.

Speaking of food, don’t miss the Georgia Food Festival, Saturday, March 18th in Woodruff Park. I like food with Guinness! Brilliant!

Here’s a few places you most likely will find me staggering around, assuming these places still exist. Some of my favorite pubs in Atlanta are no longer with us.

Limerick Junction Irish Pub
Fado’ Atlanta
Prince of Wales

Have fun!

P.S. all previous “St. Pat’s” in this post, have been corrected to “St. Patrick’s” due to Maigh’s comments. I did this because I like her, she’s gorgeous and I respect her but, most of all, I’m afraid of her. :)

    There is stuff going on at Atlantic Station for the first time for St. Patty’s day. Not sure what Dale Earnhard’s car or the Budweiser Clydesdales have to do with the auld sod, btu they’ve also got Irish dancers and free music:

    * March 16: 4 pm – Cregan O’Brien Irish Dancers; 5 pm – Buddy O’ Reilly Band
    * March 17: 2 pm – King O’Sullivan Irish Dancers; 3 pm – Music in the Glen; 5 pm – Emerald Rose
    * March 18: 11 am – Drake School Irish Dancers; 1 pm (break for downtown parade); 4 pm Siansa; 6 pm – Helen Montaine Irish Dancers, Dublin, Ireland

    I’ll overlook the use of “St. Pat’s” and “St. Patty’s” and suggest you also swing by McDuff’s Irish Pub. http://atlanta.citysearch.com/profile/2994959

    I forgot about Atlantic Station. I would like to see what’s going on there.

    Maigh, I’ll add McDuff’s to my list of locations!! (P.S.) I corrected the “typos”. :)

    Let me wish every one a Happy St. Patrick’s day. Drink safe and drive safer. And if you have Irish blood in ya (like me) refrain from killing the people that try to sound like Lucky the leprechaun.

    Good Ol’ St. Pat!!!

    You should really do what I do most years, go to a Mexican bar on St. Patty’s and an Irish bar on Cinco de Mayo. There will be far fewer people, but you’ll get a lot better service!
