I'm approximately half Irish, according to my mother (the other parts are Welsh and Swedish, I think?), and I've still never been to Ireland, but I always like to do something festive for St. Patrick's Day. It's on a Friday this year, so you can bet that San Diego will be in full swing for this traditional food and drink holiday! If you are looking for celebrations filled with traditional dishes and music of the old country… then you’re in luck! Check out these St. Patrick’s Day celebrations on March 17th that will have you wearing lots of green, not spending it.
Going downtown for the holiday celebrations? You’ll want to head to The “Mc” Waterfront where San Diego’s oldest bar will be bringing back some of the oldest Irish traditions! They’ll be serving Corned Beef & Cabbage dishes all day long, getting into the festive spirit. Not to mention, all natural red heads will get 50% off their bill at all of The Waterfront family of brands locations (including The Hills, Eastbound, Werewolf, Harbortown, Club Marina and Banzai) to celebrate the heritage behind the holiday!
Heading towards East county on The Hills and Eastbound Bar & Grill will be having St. Paddy’s parties with a pot full of drink and food specials at golden prices. Starting at , both locations will be serving Corned Beef & Cabbage specials for $12.95, until they run out.

No St. Patrick’s Day is complete without a little bit of whiskey! Thankfully, Whiskey Girl has a huge selection of Irish sips to keep the festivities going all night long. Try their Bushmills that has been aged for 9 and 10 years. Or their Middleton Rare, Feeling Small Batch, Tullamore Dew and Jameson that have an Irish kick as well.
