St. Paddy's Drink Specials
Where, When & How to Celebrate St. Patrick's Day in Philadelphia, 2012

Will you be able to corral the luck of the Irish into finding a great way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day this year? Having shed its religious origins, the holiday spawns festivities of all kinds, most having to do with prolific assimilation of sips and suds. Many bars around Philadelphia will be running specials on the holiday itself (which falls on a Saturday this year – watch out!), but some of the frolicking begins earlier. Check our our list below so you can best plan your Gaelic gaiety (unless otherwise noted, all specials are for March 17). Slainte!
