St. Patrick’s Day falls on a weekend this year, that means that all those parties are going to be a little longer, a little louder and a little crazier, so rest up for this big weekend. Los Angeles always knows how to treat St. Patrick’s Day right and this year is no different, so Splash Magazines Worldwide has put together a few of the best places to let out your Irish spirit.
You could almost begin and end any St. Patrick’s Day conversation with Rock & Reilly's Irish whiskey pub and they are so excited to get this celebration started, they are kicking things off a day early. Rock & Reilly's will celebrate the day before St. Paddy's Day with the largest all-day drinking extravaganza on the Sunset Strip: the 2nd Annual St. Patrick's Day Block Party.
The Rock n' Roll bar will transform their back parking lot into an outdoor festival on Saturday, March 16, 2013, inviting all Irish and non-Irish partygoers alike. From Noon until 10:00 PM, guests can get a taste of plenty of food trucks including Coolhaus, Famous Germany Bratwurst and Joe's Pizza, beer trucks and DJ's spinning throughout the day.
This year, Rock & Reilly's has partnered with the non-profit organization Pencils of Promise (www.pencilsofpromise.org) and will donate 15% of the proceeds from the Block Party and $1 from select food menu items purchased at the bar to the cause.
Rock & Reilly’s is located at 8911 W. Sunset Boulevard, West Hollywood, CA.
