So many things to do, so little time. Pick and choose wisely, my friends. This weekend is crazybusy. Drink plenty of water, call a cab, and watch where you’re walking. I once fell into a large crack in the middle of the road and almost died.
Raya has a created a huuuuge list of places to party for the Big Green Day. I would listen to her, if I were you.
I’ve also compiled a list of places to eat. Welcome to a weekend full of green food dye. G’luck.
Did I mention there are still tickets left to Savor Dallas? Well, there are still tickets left to Savor Dallas! I can’t believe the International Grand Tasting isn’t sold out yet; that event is the bombdiggity. You walk around and eat food from some of the best restaurants in town.
Nurse your hangover. Or drink some more.
Hopefully you will be feeling the luck of the Irish this weekend. If you are still looking for a tasty green cocktail to enjoy consider mixing one of these up for your St. Paddy’s Day holiday merriment. A few selections were sent for editorial consideration.
2 oz Blue Ice Organic Wheat Vodka
1/2 organic kiwi, peeled
1/2 organic lime, cut into quarters
1 teaspoon organic sugar
Directions: Muddle fruit and sugar in a mixing glass until well crushed and juicy. Add ice and vodka and shake vigorously. Pour all contents over ice into a tall tumbler and drink with straws.
Despite what other news outlets have reported—or what the city renames the parade—the Dallas St. Patrick’s Parade on Greenville Avenue will continue to be a party this year. I mean, Snoop Dogg, er, Snoop Lion, or whatever, is headlining the concert. So pull those glittery clover headbands out of storage; you’ll still be needing them. Enjoy this list of our favorite bars hosting Irish festivities and if it isn’t enough, visit our calendar to see all the St. Patrick’s Day events you can handle.3 Comments »
You’ll need food to get you through St. Patrick’s Day as you celebrate with one too many beers. Preferably something that fills you up and costs very little dinero.
Don’t worry, guys, I got you. I have created a handy dandy chart (made with my beautiful Microsoft Word skills) to locate the nearest restaurant with food and drink specials. Figure out where you’re eating now before you become a complete slosh bucket on Sunday.
Jump if you want the goods. Cheers.
Are you ready to lift the sanctions on eating and drinking and celebrate Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, this weekend? I’m glad you are because this lost guy has a big question and not much time. Dressed head to toe in green he writes:

Can you or your readers supply me with some recommendations for where they feel the best corned beef and cabbage can be found this weekend? Obviously, this is a bit time sensitive.
First, a few St. Patrick’s Day fun facts:
St. Patrick wasn’t Irish.
Almost 37 million Americans claim Irish ancestry. (The rest just pretend on March 17.)
Nearly 13 million pints of Guinness are consumed on St. Patrick’s Day.
There are four towns in the United States named “Shamrock.” Texas has one of them.
My sister used to eat all the marshmallows out of the Lucky Charms box growing up.
Now, without further ado, we present a guide to boozing on the mean green holiday, organized by our favorite ‘hoods. We know we’ve left off some great bars that will be hosting great times (great time = green Irish beer, Celtic jams, and corned beef and cabbage), but this is just a little taste from a few different DFW territories.
