Top 5 Ways to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day

America, things are looking up: St. Patrick’s Day is on a Friday this year. Check out these five ways to celebrate.

1. Fifty West Brewing Company kicks off a new season of its running groups with a St. Patrick’s-themed Shamrock Run on Thursday, March 16 at 6:30 p.m. Then return on Friday for their Gaddy’s Irish Red seasonal release.

2. Molly Malone’s in Covington knows how to start St. Patrick’s Day off on the right note: with Keg and Eggs starting at 7 a.m. Hear live music throughout the day from the likes of FinTan, Blue Rock Boys, Bloody Tenth, and Lost Celts. Dancers and pipers too, natch. WEBN will be on hand to host.

3. Head to the Cincinnati Public Library’s main branch downtown for their 35th annual St. Patrick’s Day of Celebration of Song and Dance from 11:45 a.m.–1 p.m. This family friendly event features live music from Dark Moll and a performance by the McGing Irish Dancers. Free. Friends of the Public Library can reserve seats for the performance by calling (513)369-6035.

4. The Irish Heritage Center’s St. Pat’s celebration begins with a 2 p.m. mass with Father Benedict O’Cinnsealaigh (fair play to you can who can pronounce that, especially after a few pints), after which the festivities swing into high gear with plenty of food, drink, shopping, and a visit from St. Patrick himself.

5. Arnold’s Bar and Grill features live music at 6 p.m. from folk rock duo Hayden Kaye, (whose latest album, Fate, was released earlier this month) followed by traditional Irish music from The Roving Rogues at 9 p.m.
