Everybody is going green on Monday, March 17, and we don’t mean saving the whales. It’s St. Patrick’s Day, when clothes, beer and complexions (the day after) all taken on a greenish hue. If you want to get your Irish on for an evening, here’s where to do it.
At The Dubliner (435 Plaza Real, 561/620-2540) in Mizner Park, they’re throwing an all-day block party complete with three live bands (Uproot Hootenany, Living Daylights and Rogue Theory), an Irish fiddler, plus a DJ, bagpipers and Irish cloggers. There will also be traditional Irish buffet featuring the restaurant’s house-cured corned beef and cabbage.
Paddy Mac’s (10971 N. Military Trail, 561/691-4366) in Palm Beach Gardens is throwing a big bash too, with live music from the likes of Tracy Sands and Rod McDonald, the Lahinch Mob and the Sierra Band. They’ll be serving up a special menu, featuring—natch—corned beef and cabbage, but also everything from crab-stuffed dolphin to New York strip flamed with Irish whiskey. No green beer but a proper pint o’ Guinness.
All the Duffy’s Sports Grills in PBC—Boca, Delray, Boynton, West Palm, Palm Beach Gardens—will be dishing up some special Irish chow on the big day itself. Look for a half-pound of corned beef plus cabbage for #11.95, plus $3 pints of Killians beer.
There will be all kinds of food and drink specials at The Office (201 E. Atlantic Ave., 561/507-7463) in downtown Delray. Think corned beef and cabbage, grilled reuben sammies and half-priced James Irish whisky shots and Irish Car Bombs.
And if you like your Irish celebration with a side order of sushi, check out the St. Paddy’s Day drink specials at RA Sushi (11701 Lake Victoria Gardens Ave., 561/340-2112) in Palm Beach Gardens. Slug down green hot sake for $1, shots of Jameson Irish whisky for $4, melon margaritas for $5 and Irish Car Bombs for $6.
And if you want to get started early with a little help from a few thousand of your close personal friends, there’s in downtown West Palm Beach on Saturday and Sunday, March 15 and 16, not to mention the the 46th annual St. Patrick’s Day festival and parade in downtown Delray Beach, set for Friday and Saturday, March 14 and 15.
