Happy St Patrick’s Day Weekend…And we’ve all kinds of festive ideas for you. From the nation’s coolest St Patrick’s Day events, to movies, music and cutting edge TV – we’ve got your back big-time. Plus we’ve another weekend beer suggestion for you, because we know you’ll be drinking.
100+ Never Before Beers (Denver, CO) – One of the nation’s most unique beer festivals, the 2019 Collaboration Fest is returning to Denver this Saturday March 16th, and there’s no excuse for missing this one. Now in its 6th year, this year’s festival will offer up more than 100 never-before collaborations…some of the most exciting, rare, and delicious beers you’ll find anywhere.
TV Time & Steaming – What better time than St Patrick’s Day to return to the seven film franchise at its B-movie best. We suggest you start with the original Leprechaun (you can find it on most streaming services). It stars Jennifer Aniston in her film debut and Warwick Davis as the vengeful leprechaun who believes a family has stolen his pot of gold and he’s brutally pissed off. Often referred to as one of the worst horror franchises of all time, we admit that the Leprechaun series is an acquired taste – but one that goes well with Guinness.
The Classic Irish Pub Crawl – With St Patrick’s Day falling on a Sunday this year it’s the perfect time to rediscover one of America’s greatest drinking pleasures – the Irish pub. Few understand the drinking experience as a social entertainment better than the Irish, and they will be in full-on celebratory mode this weekend. Be sure to commit to more than a token appearance (a fast Érin Go Bragh and goodbye). a true Irish pub outing is an entire evening of music, drink and friends…not an hour.
