St. Patrick's Day in Atlanta

Get ready to puke green throw an O' onto the front of your name and dig that green shirt out of the laundry bin. It's almost St. Patrick's Day, so here's a round up of Irish fun in the ATL:

Shamrock Fest - March 5 at Park Tavern

It's time to get in touch with your Irish side and get ready to get SHAMROCKED with Yacht Rock! The Park Tavern & A Social Mess invite you to Mother of all Saint Pat's Parties! Chock full of beer, live music & hotties o' plenty. Grab your kilts, shine your Shamrocks, and get ready to kiss a Blarney Stone or two. Who knows you may just go home with a lucky charm or two!

Looking for a tamer way to kick things off? Check out downtown's St. Patrick's Day Parade on March 12. Find the deets here.

Luckyfest at Park Tavern - March 12

Show up to Park Tavern a few days later for Spiral Entertainment's March 12 festivities. $25 gets you green beer, live music, munchies, and I kid you not "Southern belles in tight green shirts." What more could you ask for?
