Erin Go Braugh - Dueling Block Parties and More!!

Happy St. Patrick's Day - I hope you got your green on, or you're gonna get pinched!!!

St. Patrick's Day Events

Parasol's/Tracey's Block Party!
10:00 a.m. til 7:00 (or whenever ;)  The Annual celebration in the Irish Channel - corner of Third and Constance Streets. Lots o' green beer!

The Irish Channel St. Patrick's Day Club
This a great event!!  It's a benefit block party from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Annunciation Square Playground, directly in front of St. Michael's Special School; to whom the proceeds of the block will be donated - so be sure to drink a lot o' beer and eat a lot o' food.

Downtown Irish Club Parade - MY FAVORITE!!!
Starts up around 6:30 p.m. around Markey's Bar, but come a little earlier for the street party!The annual downtown St. Patrick's Day parade begins on the corner of Burgundy and Piety in the Bywater, proceeds roughly up Royal, across Esplanade to Decatur, up Bienville to Bourbon.

And if you're hanging in the Quarter - make sure to stop by the best Irish Pubs in the WORLD!!  Boondock Saint and Pat O'Brien's are both conveniently located on the 700 block of St. Peter.  Also, check out my website Nola Pub for a complete listing of the best Irish pubs in NOLA....and always remember...

May the road rise up to meet you.  May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face, and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
