St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner. So, I thought I’d put together a little list of fun things to do to celebrate.
Wear Green. It shouldn’t be hard to find at this time, but don’t wait till the last minute because they will quickly sell out. Some great places to shop are Old Navy and Target. Be as subtle or as wild as you’d like. Its all about having fun! (Well I waited to long and couldn’t find a green shirt, but I found one with green writing.)
Play some Irish music or music by Irish bands. Traditional Irish artist like The Chieftains or the Dubliners, or some rock music from bands like Van Morrison, Thin Lizzy, and U2. I mean who doesn’t love Bono?
Attend a parade. And while you’re at it, attend a block party. For 14 years now, N. Charleston has hosted the biggest St. Patrick’s day celebration in the Lowcountry. Live music, vendors, and food trucks galore. There’s fun-filled activities the entire family can enjoy.
Check out the local pub scene. In Charleston, there are many places to go. Some of the popular favorites are Tommy Condon’s, Seanachai Whiskey & Cocktail Bar, Madra Rua Irish Pub, The Griffon, and Dunleavy’s Pub. Where ever you decide to join in, I’m sure it will be a spirited affair!
Host your own shindig. If the bar scene is not your thing, host a small gathering at home. You can find inexpensive decor at Party City or order some cute items from Oriental Trading. Be sure to serve up some green cuisine and wash it all down with your creative green cocktails or some Guinness beer.
So what are your plans this St. Patrick’s Day?
