17 Ways to Celebrate St. Paddy’s
You’re in luck—this year’s festivities include parades, pub parties, bar crawls, Celtic concerts and more. Sláinte!
St. Patrick’s Day at Bronson Bierhall
When: March 14 & 17
Where: Bronson Bierhall, 4100 Fairfax Drive, Arlington (Ballston)
German, Irish. Irish, German. How differently are they, really? That’s the question Bronson Bierhall plans on posing this St. Patrick’s Day, offering $5 Guinness pints and Jameson shots on Saturday, and the same on Tuesday—with a half-price giant pretzels, too.
Magic Monday: St. Patrick’s Day
When: March 16, 6-7 p.m.
Where: Cherrydale Branch Library, 2190 N. Military Road, Arlington
This St. Paddy’s Day twist on Arlington Public Library’s Magic Monday performance series for kids goes well beyond shamrock making. With help from Synetic Theater, as well as audience participation, excerpts from Irish writers W.B. Yeats, Seamus Heaney and James Joyce will come to life. Admission is free, but space is limited, and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
St. Patrick’s Day at The Renegade
When: March 17, noon-2 a.m.
Where: The Renegade, 3100 Clarendon Blvd., Arlington (Clarendon)
The drinks will be flowing at this live music venue, which will be pouring $5 Guinness Blonde, Guinness Milk Stout and Smithwicks on draft, along with $5 shots of Tullamore Dew. The day also promises tunes courtesy of DJ Pat Premier and DJ Witty from noon to 4 p.m., followed by a live performance by The Hooligans at 4 p.m.
