Houston’s hot spots for St. Patrick’s Day
BY BRITTANY TAYLOR
St. Patrick’s Day is that time of year when friends get together and go out for a margarita or a nice cold beer, possibly even a green beer. Say what! That’s right; there are plenty of bars in town that celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with food and drink specials starting this weekend.
Here’s a list of places you don’t want to miss.
1) Celtic Gardens
Location: 2300 Louisiana St, Houston, TX 77006
With over 10,000 likes on Facebook, this restaurant/bar boasts having the “Biggest St.Patrick’s Day Festival in Midtown”. This year they will be offering three days of live music, green beer, and over 45,000 sq. ft. of dancing space. That’s almost the size of a football field! Get your green ready because the party starts on the 14th from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.
2) The Harp
Location: 1625 Richmond Ave, Houston, TX, 77006
Voted Houston’s number one venue for St. Patrick’s Day, The Harp will open its doors at noon on Tuesday. If you’re looking for a meaty and hearty meal to supplement the drinking, look no further. It will be serving steak, sausage, burgers and plenty of drink specials. If you’re feeling Irish, kick off your shoes, and dance along to the bagpipe tunes with Irish dancers.
3) Little Woodrow’s – Midtown
Location: 2306 Brazos St, Houston, TX 77006
The streets will likely be filled around Little Woodrow’s Pre St.Patty’s Day party with live music, crawfish and cocktails on tap. Additionally, this location has 50 beers on tap to serve each and every one of your taste buds. Best of all, there’s no cover!
4) Houston St.Patrick’s Parade Commission
If the nightlife isn’t your thing, bring your family to one of the largest parades that celebrates the Irish culture this Saturday.
Rain or shine, this free two-hour annual parade will start at noon under the Clock Tower at Minute Maid Park, and will be led by Grand Marshal Deacon Pat Hancock. The after party will be at Lucky’s Pub!
