St. Patrick's Day 2016 - Make the Most Out of This All Day Holiday

St. Patrick’s Day hits this year on Thursday, March 17th. That means either plan a vacation day for Friday or call in sick and make a four-day weekend out of this festive holiday. The parties get started early and the beer and cocktails seem to pour endlessly on the west coast with endless choices between Los Angeles and Las Vegas. Splash Magazines Worldwide has put together a few of the best spots to let your inner Irish spirit out this year.

One of our favorite spots in Los Angeles and Las Vegas (Summerlin) to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day is amazingly fun Public School on Tap where all locations will be offering skillet-style Corned Beef Hash alongside their rotating craft beer taps and select Irish whiskeys. From March 14th to the 19th, enjoy braised, house-made corned beef with a stout-mornay reduction and topped with a 6-minute egg, crispy smashed potatoes, roasted carrots and brussels sprouts. Pair it with an Irish whiskey flight* and consider yourself shamrocked. *Irish whiskey selection varies by location.

If you want to stay in the festive spirit this St. Patrick's Day but want to avoid the typical hangover that might hit you, reach for Project Juice. Project Juice, while fitting in with St. Patrick's Day, should become part of your daily diet. If you are new to juicing or aren't quite sure what flavor you might like best, the green sampler pack is the perfect way to get introduced to Project Juice. The sampler pack includes; Dr. Green, #GETYOURGREENS, Potion 10, Sweet Greens, Deep Green, Green Lemon, Green Ginger and Chlorophyll Water.

Project Juice’s vitamin filled, hydrating, organic, non-GMO, cold-pressed juices not only make for a great cocktail mixer but they also help you avoid that Friday morning hangover. The other great alternative to fight off a day of Irish cocktails is the HDX Hydration Mix. An all-natural hydration powder that serves as the antithesis to all those sugary, calorie and carb laden hydration mixes that are currently on the market. The product is paleo friendly, safe for everyday use and families, and it tastes great.

Hard Rock Cafe will celebrate the holiday with its new GUINNESS® Irish Stout and Jameson® Irish Whiskey infused-burger and beer duet. The GUINNESS® & Jameson® Bacon Cheeseburger, paired with a GUINNESS® stout, will be available at cafe locations across the nation beginning Thursday, February 18th through Sunday, April 10th, just in time to help guests’ taste buds get lucky for St. Patrick’s Day.

Hard Rock Cafe’s GUINNESS® & Jameson® Bacon Cheeseburger features a Certified Angus Beef® patty topped with Jameson® Irish Whiskey bacon jam, a GUINNESS® Stout cheese sauce, tomatoes and seasoned arugula. The burger will be served alongside Hard Rock’s seasoned fries with the option to add a topping of GUINNESS® cheese sauce and bacon, allowing guests to experience Irish stout flavors with every bite.

Hard Rock Guinness Burger

The new GUINNESS® & Jameson® Bacon Cheeseburger joins Hard Rock’s line of burger and beer pairings, including the Rebel Legendary™ Burger, Goose Island Tropical Bacon Burger, Samuel Adams OctoberFest Schnitzel Burger and the Modelo Especial Bacon Cheeseburger. Each limited-edition burger was created with a specific beer in mind, taking the culinary beer trend to the next level by infusing beer into the burger recipe.

The GUINNESS® & Jameson® Bacon Cheeseburger and beer pairing will be available at cafe locations nationwide along with additional pairings throughout 2016. Guests can stop by Hard Rock Cafe to try out the latest items or visit Hard Rock for more information.
