St. Patrick’s Day hits this year on Friday, March 17th, so party away as you will have the entire weekend to either recover or to keep the fun going!  The parties get started early and the cocktails seem to get more and more creative each year and on the west coast it is a tug and war between Los Angeles and Las Vegas as to who has to top events. Splash Magazines Worldwide has put together a few of the best spots to let your inner Irish spirit out this year.

Our favorite Los Angeles Brewery, Golden Road, will be offering a Shamrock Special of 4 beers for just $16 ($4 beers!). Or for those hoping to indulge in an epic Irish treat, Golden Road’s Irish Stout will be served with mini Irish Cream popsicles to give your brew an extra sweet, creamy kick! Adding to the festive feel, the kitchen will be serving up St. Patty's day classics like corned beef and hash sliders, shepherd's pie, stout beef stew, Irish soda bread, Lucky Charms Rice Crispy treats and more.

From 6-10pm there will be a free photo booth set up in the pub and kids can kick it in the play area, enjoying free coloring pages all day. Oh, and dogs are allowed in the large outdoor lounge area, so Fido, you're‚Äč welcome, too!
