Where Are You Partying St. Patrick’s Day Weekend? Let Us Know!

14 Mar

Let it be known how we feel about St. Patrick’s Day:  it should be moved to a constant day each and every March.  Yes, it’s always March 17 (Monday this year), but, what if we made it the second or third Saturday of every March instead?  That way we can all officially celebrate over the weekend!  Well, perhaps that might be a bad idea…that would mean you can’t justify two weeks of partying and becoming officially Irish.  Okay, we’ll stick with it the way it is…

But, we want to know, where do you go out to drink and get some great Irish food when St. Patrick’s Day is around the corner?  We’ll start with one choice that we’ve always been happy with:  Coalhouse Pizza.  For brunch on Saturday or Sunday, all year long, you can order an Irish Breakfast which includes toast, eggs, beans, bangers, rashers, white pudding, and the yummy but kind of scary black pudding.  and, yes, they have beer…52 taps worth.

So, let us know…this is your chance to plug your favorite restaurant or bar here in CT:  where do you go if you want that perfect pint or want some great Irish food?

Happy St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick’s Day is coming up on March 17 and ya best know that Connecticut is representin’ the best of the Irish.  In particular, we feel especially excited this year because we’ll be traveling to Ireland this year.  Yes!  There will be plenty o’ pints, Irish breakfasts, boxty, and fried stuff.  We can’t promise that we’ll be trying blood sausage or blood pudding, but we will probably eat almost everything that’s placed in front of us.  But, we see it as kind of prep work to get some great Irish experiences, food, and culture here before we leave.  Already, last week, we saw The Mighty Ploughboys and The Tartan Terrors perform at Ridgefield Playhouse.  Yeah, awesome…so, we wanted to give you a little bit o’ Ireland with this post.  We’ll be updating this here and there with fun food related events that revolve around St. Patrick’s Day.  If you have any suggestions for us, let us know!


1) Check out the Bridgeport St. Patrick’s Day Parade on 3/15 from the warm comforts of Barnum Publick House!  The fun begins at 11, so get settled because the parade will start at noon.  There are food and drink specials all day with no cover charge.

2) Get some Kegs & Eggs at Fire Engine Pizza Company on St. Patrick’s Day!  $10 gets you beer and breakfast from 8-11 am.  You can also check out their corned beef reuben or bangers & mash pizza all day, too.  


3) St. Patrick’s Day lasts a week at Molly Darcy’s!  Specials and live entertainment all week.

Elmsford, NY

4)  Yes, we realize it’s not Connecticut, but the lure of good beer is so hard to resist.  You’ll want to check out Bollock’s Fest ’13 at Captain Lawrence Brewery on 3/17 at noon.  Burke’s Revenge will be playing live music such as Dropkick Murphys and Village Dog will be there pushing out corned beef dogs, shepherd’s pie, and lots more.  The clincher is that Brewmaster extraordinare Scott Vaccaro will be premiering three Irish “inspired” ales.  Tickets are $21.69 per person and can be bought here.
