Don’t have any plans this St. Patrick’s Day? Let me help you out! Being new to the city, I have also had some trouble coming up with things to do on this boozing holiday. I have come up with a quick list of shenanigan-filled fun in the Emerald City.
Start with the Apps
It’s all rainbows and shamrocks when you’re out with friends…if you know what’s going on. Don’t miss any of the fun and download these city apps that let you know of various events nearby.
Stay up-to-date with these apps that highlight the best restaurants and shows to catch every Friday night. Don’t forget to check out Facebook Events as well. With their new “Discover” option, you are sure to have more options for a fun-filled weekend.
Booze and Buddies
St. Patty’s is well known for the green overdose and discounted well drinks– so, join your fellow Seattleites and Go Green!
The Pike Pub – 1415 1st Ave, Seattle. Entertainment starts at 5:30 pm with menu specials all night long.
Get Sham-Rocked – Hard Rock Cafe, 116 Pike Street, Seattle. Enjoy music and beer from 3pm- 7pm.
Party Cruise – Waterways Homeport on Lake Washington. Set sail at 8:30pm. SOLD OUT
Kell’s St. Patrick’s Irish Festival – 1916 Post Alley, Seattle. Join them for the 34th Annual Festival with live entertainment and traditional food all weekend long.

Don’t Push the Luck!
Don’t forget to designate a sober driver regardless of location. If one cannot be chosen, don’t fret. Just download a ridesharing app and you’re ready to hit the road. Beep, Beep.
