You’ll need food to get you through St. Patrick’s Day as you celebrate with one too many beers. Preferably something that fills you up and costs very little dinero.

Don’t worry, guys, I got you. I have created a handy dandy chart (made with my beautiful Microsoft Word skills) to locate the nearest restaurant with food and drink specials. Figure out where you’re eating now before you become a complete slosh bucket on Sunday.

Jump if you want the goods. Cheers.

“Eggs benedict with quail eggs. Chicken and waffles made with beer. Tea in our cocktails.

Starting on Saturday, Mar. 16, you can kick up your heels throughout the night to the tunes of Lookout until midnight when a signature toast to St. Patrick’s Day complete with a bagpiper and balloon drop really gets your lucky charms going.

To continue the fun, on Sunday, Mar. 17, follow the rainbow (and the bagpiper) to the BBC for a memorable 10 am – 3 p.m. brunch that includes green beer, craft drink specials, all while enjoying the sounds of Matt Barron & the Time Machine.”
