Are you ready for a green beer?
St. Patrick’s day is always such a fun day. Kiddos enjoy setting leprechaun traps in the day time, and parents enjoy a night out after the kids go to bed! It’s not all alcohol-infused parties, though. Many communities are working hard to develop more family-friendly and healthy events for the major American holiday. For now, though, here are my favorite hot-spots for dining and drinking this March 17th.
Eat, Drink & Be Irish!
While we’re not seeing anything special planned for the Irish pub, it’s hard to imagine that there won’t be a festive atmosphere and green beer here on the 17th. And hey, you could always bring your own green food coloring
Right in downtown Bellevue, this Irish pub is the perfect place to grab some food and a beer before heading out on the town. With so many hotels within walking distance, it’s the perfect place to enjoy the holiday responsibly.
With regularly scheduled live music three nights per week, you can believe that St. Patrick’s day will be a lively event at this local eatery. This place is super unique, as it blends Celtic and Cajun food for a totally exciting experience.
Right on the Kirkland waterfront- this one is always busy. On St. Pat’s though, things get really intense! Expect live music, drink specials, and a lively crowd.
No shortage of runs scheduled for St. Patrick’s Day 2019, either! On the Eastside, my pick would be the Kirkland Shamrock Run.
If you’re up for a trip across the lake- don’t forget that Seattle puts on one heck of a parade. Complete with bagpipers and Irish dancing and music. It’s sure to entertain the entire family! There is also an Irish festival and 5K at Seattle Center.
