Bullish on St. Paddy's Day Celebrations

There are no rivers to dye green but Durham knows how to put on a party so there are several options for celebrating St. Patrick’s Day tomorrow, Thursday, March 17. Named after Saint Patrick, the most commonly recognized of the patron saints of Ireland, this religious holiday has gradually become more of a secular celebration of Irish culture. So choose your celebration, wear green, and enjoy the luck of the Irish.

Durham's Irish pubs, James Joyce and Bull McCabe's, are great places to start but there are other options as well.

Dain’s Place: Live music starting at 2 pm, going till midnight.

Casbah: Local bands covering Irish rock bands all night

The Federal: Ain’t Paddy’s Day celebration with southern food and music

Nasher Café: Irish-themed dinner with St. Patrick’s Day party favors

West 94th Pub: St. Patty’s Day Party – all day

Even Locopops is getting in on the celebratory action with a special popsicle for the occassion...made with stout beer and chocolate.

Food blog Carpe Durham contributed to this list and is a blog worth following for those interested in Durham's food scene.
