Irish or not, Saint Patrick’s Day is a day we can find a little Irish in us all, throw on an Irish wool sweater, drink beer and sport bright green shamrock paraphernalia. Whether you’ve already begun the festivities this past weekend at the Stamford St. Patty’s Day parade, or plan to skip out early this Thursday to grab a pint at your local pub, Patch Picks is here to inform you of some of the great choices Stamford has to offer this March 17.
Stamford’s most well known Irish pub doesn’t disappoint this St. Patrick's Day starting bright and early with their Pints and Pancakes Breakfast at 8 a.m., followed by early lunch services at 10 a.m. The pub will also feature live music and Irish dancers in a party tent from 3-11 p.m. In the spirit of this great holiday, the menu is also enhanced to feature some favorite Irish fare, including the beloved Corn Beef sandwich.
Everyone loves a good giveaway and this Thursday Tiernan’s on Main Street will feature all day giveaways as well as Irish dancers, food and music. As the evening goes on, Tiernan’s will also feature local favorite “The Short Bus,” a multi-award winning cover band starting at 9 p.m.
A typical Thursday at Monster B’s is filled with the sound of patrons singing at the top of their lungs as they join in on the bar’s Thirsty Thursday Karaoke night. This week will be no different, except this week’s festivities will also include drink specials, bag pipers and, green beer. What St. Patrick’s Day party would be complete without it?
Local hot spots Black Bear and Hula Hanks are cross-promoting their St. Patty’s Day events offering drink specials, giveaways and live music. Not able to make it out on Thursday? They’ll continue the festivities for those responsible folks taking it easy on the mid-week partying with continued celebrations on Saturday March 19.
Looking for a shift form the typical Irish bar scene? Sundance Café and Wine Bar on Broad Street is a great alternative, and will be featuring their very own Irish singer and guitar player Ed Gomez from 7-10 p.m. That very same night their brand new art exhibition will be unveiled featuring Albanian painter Sotiraq Kuqali.
