Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Happy St. Patrick’s Day from Foobooz.

What was once a quaint day to wear green and eat Irish potatoes has turned into a complete boozefest but here are some picks of places where you can be proud to be Irish while minimizing the chance of puke on winding up on your shoes.

  • The Swift Half is offering $3 Swift Half Pints and $3 Irish Snacks including: Stuffed Cabbage; Traditional Boxty with applesauce; Ham and Cheese Pierogies with Guinness brown butter; Mini Fish and Chips; and Bangers in a Blanket.
  • Looking for a fun Irish band to stomp along to, the Ruffians are playing at the North Star Bar. The North Star will also be offering $4 Imperial pints of Guinness all day.
