This Saturday, March 17 is St. Patrick’s Day! Whether you are Irish or not, it is just a great day to let loose and have a little fun. When else do you get to pinch someone if they aren’t wearing a certain color?! Here are some St. Patty’s Day events we found around town and don’t forget all the green food!
Here is a list of local Irish pubs/bars around town:
O’Connor’s Public House in Rochester, MI: They will be starting the party at 7 am! There will be DJs from Channel 95.5, live music and of course… lots of green beer!
Duggan’s Irish Pub in Royal Oak, MI: They will also be starting at 7 am with DJs from WOMC 104.3FM and live entertainment all night.
O’Tooles in Royal Oak and Waterford, MI: If you want a little bit of a classier Irish atmosphere, this looks like the place to go.
Fenian’s Irish Pub in Conklin, MI: They are holding a parade and Hooley (Irish slang for party) with plenty of Irish musicians on St. Patrick’s Day.
Conor O’Neills in Ann Arbor, MI: They are partying all week up until St. Patrick’s Day where their all-day celebration will have drink specials, Irish dancers and bag pipers!
Flanagan’s Irish Pub in Grand Rapids, MI: Their festivities go from 7 am until 2 am with a special performance by Rich Burkholder and Oregon Dreamchild in the evening.
Dick O’ Dow’s in Birmingham, MI: They are opening early as well… come have a green beer with breakfast!
