Hot Spots for St. Patrick's Day

Recommended Posts

Being the irish-ish man I am, I take the day off and enjoy what the city of Grand Rapids has to offer me.

The last couple years we get up way too early and hit up drink specials around town.

6-7am is ideal.

This year we have McFadden's to look forward to.

I think my itinerary will look like this:

Black Rose, McFadden's, Gardella's (have to get a drink on the way!), Flannigan's, Quinn and Tuites.

Any other hot spots I'm missing downtown for such a glorious day?

Any drink specials you in-the-know's know?

I'm getting dragged to Detroit this year for CCHA finals @ the Joe. But years past I have frequented The Elbow Room on Fuller. Can't beat cheap Guiness.

I'll start out at the Black Rose about 3PM, take it easy, drive to Holland for the 6:00 PM St. Patrick's Day parade which ends at the Curragh Irish Pub. Great Irish music in both venues and a well-poured Guinness!

ps:

Mcfaddens = Sports Bar with green wallpaper. :rolleyes:

Am I the only Irish-American who dosen't celebrate? Speaking of that I was the one kid in grade school not wearing green, I was ridiculed for being authentic Irish.

we tend to make rounds, Start ad Divani, to Gardellas, Taps, alot of the time we end up at Mulligans. This year they'll prolly start at McFaddens, Me I'll be stuck in Phoenix, where you find bars in strip malls, since they are the oldest structures in Arizona! I'll stay home and watch Buffy or something.

I stayed at the Silver Derby all night last year. The Bud Light bagpippers and drummer came in to top of the night. A good time was had by all.

If you have a good 15 minutes, you can check out the GR St. Patrick's Day parade. Im not kidding, last years was only 15 minutes long!

Where do we apply to be in the parade? Maybe we can get an Urban Planet Grand Rapids float entered. ;)

Quinn and Tuites for me, and as a good Irishman (mostly anyway) its Mass in the morning and heathenism all night....

That would be hillarious. We could all dress up looking like Steve Irwin riding a huge croc down the street.

Has anybody here been to that bar in Conklin on St. Patricks day?

I have, last year. Crowded, smoky, noisy. The same musicians (bring your axe and sit in!) play every Wednesday, and if you like that sort of music, go when it's not "amateur night" (and I don't mean the players).

The monthly contra dance in Holland (Park Twp Hall) is March 17. Live music, $7 cover, smoke-free. (Alcohol-free, too.) Friendly folks who will ask you to dance. Green apparel likely.

I dropped my roomate off at McFadden's at 8am to start the festivities. :D

That sounds like a lot of punishment for one liver to take.
