5 fun things to try on the day before Saint Patrick’s Day 2013


Everyone knows St. Patrick’s Day will be celebrated on Saturday this year since going out on a Sunday night is not feasible for those who work early Monday morning.

Here is 5 Fun things to do this Saint Patrick’s Day:

  1. Do a super- scientific poll and see how many people know that Saturday is not really Saint Patrick’s Day.
  2. Attend the Saint Patrick’s Day Parade. Starting at 6:30PM the parade travels down Nicollet. My favorite is the Bag Pipers and the huge Irish Setter dogs who make an appearance every year.
  3. Have a Jameson and Ginger or the Two Gingers at The Local in Downtown Minneapolis. It will be very crowded but don’t worry they have space outside as well.
  4. Drink so much green beer that your pee turns green. Just kidding. But, does that really happen? Drink a Finnegans instead 100% of their profits go to charity.
  5. Later tonight head to The Saloon. If you want to see the best costuming and green clothing items in town.

Because you are Irish today.

Here are some photos from my St. Patrick’s Day!

This parade was the worst one that I have ever been to, but all the people in it looked like they were having fun and by fun I mean they were very drunk.

Happy Hours on St. Patrick’s Day in Minneapolis


Minnesota must have had the “luck of the Irish” this St. Patrick’s Day! 80 degrees and sunny on a Saturday. Although, party buses seemed to be the fad this year, I spent the day hitting up the patios around Minneapolis.

The first place we were going to stop at was Brit’s Pub. Clearly, that was everyone’s idea. I think people might have mistaken Brits pub as an Irish bar. :) They closed their patio at 3, my guess is for the parade.

We then headed to Rock Bottom Brewery. What great deals! They had 2 dollar stouts. We had this great pretzel appetizer that I would get again.

Then off to Crave. Where apparently belligerency was the key to being on the rooftop. It was a beautiful rooftop only be ruined by all the people who had already had too much to drink. Apparently, Jason Matheson of FM107 was there at the same time I was take a listen to the first hour of their show today to hear all about my experience. :)  Being cut-off at 4PM by your server is not good.

We got out of there quickly as another group of drunken leprechauns set up behind us and headed to Solera. I had never been there before and was very satisfied with the experience. We got a wonderful spot on the patio and had some great appetizers and some Sangria. My favorite was the lamb croquet’s.

All and all, this was a great St. Patrick’s Day good food and watching the belligerency from afar.

because 80 degrees in March is amazing!

Metro Transit- Free Rides


Another reason why I love Metro Transit. If you are planning on celebrating St. Patrick’s Day tomorrow why not take the bus?

IT’s FREE from 6:00pm until buses stop running.

 

Because I don’t Blarney around.
