ST. PATRICK’s EVENTS
St. Patrick’s Day may fall on a Sunday
this year (it’s on March 17), but that
doesn’t mean a Monday morning class
is reason enough to stay in this weekend
studying, while the rest of Los Angeles
is getting down on corned-beef, green
beer and Irish Car Bombs. Sure, staying
near campus or around the valley would
be ideal for some, but the city is truly
the place to be for the most anticipated,
alcohol-induced celebration of the year.
Here’s a few places worth checking out:
Casey’s Irish Pub
613 S. Grand Ave. LA
For more information call (213) 629-2353
An event in LA with its 41st Annual St. Patrick’s
Day Street Festival, from 6 a.m. to 2 a.m.
Featuring live music, beer, whiskey, food and
all things Irish, the block party is free before
1 p.m., $8 after that. There is the option for a
$20 VIP pass that lets holders skip lines.
Cole’s French Dip
118 E. Sixth St.
For more information call (213) 622-4090
The Red Car Bar at Cole’s seems to have it
all. With Irish coffee (and milkshakes), Guinness
Floats, Jameson pickle backs and corned beef
and sauerkraut on rye, each for $10 or less.
Tom Bergin’s Tavern
840 S. Fairfax Ave. LA
For more information call (323) 963-7151
This will be the first time the tavern
celebrates St. Patty’s since their renovation,
and they’re not holding back. Open
from 6 a.m. to 2 a.m., an Irish breakfast
will be served all day. A “Stout Off,” featuring
four taps each of Guinness Stout
and O’Hara’s Stout, will ensure a steady
flow of drinks through the evening.
The Cat & Fiddle
6530 Sunset Blvd. LA
For more information call (323) 468-3800
$5 pints of Guinness will be available from
4 to 5 p.m., and all day they’ll be serving up
specials on corned beef and cabbage plates.
Dillon’s Irish Pub
6263 Hollywood Blvd. LA
For more information call (323) 315-9744
Every day at Dillon’s might as well be
St. Patrick’s Day with waitresses in plaid
skirts and fishnets, $3 pints of any draft
beers and a menu that makes Ireland hungry.
Around the holiday however, Dillon’s
opens its doors early from 6 a.m. to 2 a.m.
and gets a bit more festive with green beer
345 N. La Brea Ave. LA
For more information call (323) 931-9291.
It may be a German restaurant and pub, but
Wirsthaus is making sure you get shitfaced
nice and early this St. Patty’s with an all-youcan-
drink beer brunch from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.
for just $27. It doesn’t take the greatest math
skills to realize this equals drunken success.
