Ireland’s Four Courts
What’s on Tap: Get ready for five days of fun, starting with a Guinness & Oyster Fest with traditional Irish music and dancing on Wednesday, March 13. Feeling artistic? On Thursday, March 14, snap a selfie and order a STOUTie—which transfers your likeness onto the head of a pint of Guinness, using the wonders of ink-jet technology and a natural malt extract as paint. Come Friday, March 15, raise your glass for a traditional Irish toast at 7 p.m. And then the serious fun kicks into gear. On Saturday, March 16, earn your beer in the morning by running the Four Courts Four Miler (start time 9 a.m. at the corner of Wilson and Clarendon Boulevards in Courthouse) and finish strong with the bar’s post-race party under a heated tent. The pub’s doors will open at 8 a.m. on both Saturday and Sunday, March 16 and 17, making it party central for Irish food, bag pipers, Irish dancing, live music, English Premiere League football and college basketball.
