So, as it goes, we were a little distracted by something shiny in the Demonbreun roundabout this morning, and our St. Patty’s Day roundup is rolling in a little late. But it’s never too late for green beer, so check out our top picks for the evening. Be safe, and program 862-RIDE into your phones now – It’s the sheriff’s Sober Ride program, and it’s good for a free ride home until 2am.
Get Lucky East Yazoo Brew Pub Crawl. 7pm-12am, East Nashville’s Five Points, free. Pub crawl around East Nashville’s Five Points, beginning the evening with a Yazoo beer chug contest at Red Door and ending with the “sexiest dressed” contest at 3 Crow Bar, grand prize giveaways and more! We love the Get Lucky East crawl, but good luck getting in the doors. It’ll be packed!
The Greenman Cometh St. Patty’s Day at MAI. 10pm-3am, MAI, free. Our hats go off to MAI for the It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia reference, and for a free party with sweet DJs and cheap Guiness and carbombs. And well, you know how we feel about the Greenman here at Nashvillest… or do you?
David Bazan with Headlights. 9pm, Exit/In, $12. Okay okay, so it’s not a St. Patty’s Day event per se, but it’s where your Nashvillest editors will be spending the first part of their holiday evening. We highly recommend this show if you’re not in the green-beer-and-car-bombs mood.
St. Patty’s Day at Dan McGuinness. All day, both locations, $10 cover. Dan McG’s kicked off their celebration early this morning, Kegs ‘n Eggs style. For the rest of the day, they’re serving up Shepherd’s Pie, corned beef & cabbage, fish & chips, beef & guinness and all the rest of your favorite St. Patty’s fare. The music is already going strong, and we have a sneaking suspicion that the Roundabout Vandals are one of the performing acts this evening. Will we get a confession? We’ll see!
McPatty’s Fest. McFadden’s, $10. Plenty of music & shenanegins to go around. Space Capone? A Lucky Charms eating contest? You clearly can’t go wrong with this one.
St. Patrick’s Day at 1808. 1808 Grille, 11am-10pm, $15 whiskey tasting / $12 pub-style menu. The first 100 guests to 1808 Grille’s whiskey tasting will take home a free whiskey glass, which we think is a pretty sweet deal.
St. Patrick’s Day at Whiskey Kitchen. 5pm-close. Give us any excuse to hang out at the Whiskey Kitchen, and we’ll take it. 2-for-1 Jameson is tonight’s reason!
St. Patrick’s Day at Mulligan’s. 4pm-close, cover starts at $5. Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at a traditional Irish pub with live music, dancing, green beer, and all the other usual suspects.
Jimmy Kelly’s St. Patrick’s Day. 5pm-close. It’s Jimmy Kelly’s 75th annual St. Patrick’s Day party, which is reason enough to attend. At the oldest St. Patrick’s Day party in town, you’ll hear traditional Irish music by Les Kerr & the Bayou Band, eat traditional corned beef n’ cabbage, and drink yourself silly. It is St. Patty’s Day, after all.
St. Patrick’s Day at Hard Rock Cafe. 8pm, $5. While many St. Patty’s parties will set you back $10 or more, the Hard Rock is charging a wee $5 cover tonight. As you might expect by now, the evening will feature live music (Stacy Mitchhart Band, Kendra Chantelle, Brennin and Clay Evans).
St. Patrick’s Day Party at the Flying Saucer. 9pm, $6. Live music by Bueller until the wee hours (1am), and lots of great drink specials on Irish beer.
