A Handy Guide to St. Patrick's Day Specials in Los Angeles

View as Map

2008_10_hasmaps.jpgIf there's ever a day to celebrate drinking, it's St. Patrick's Day. This year, the holiday falls on a Monday, which means that most of the heavy drinking will happen during the weekend, Friday through Sunday. Expect plenty of green beer, corned beef and cabbage, live music, and raucous daytime intoxication. There are some classier establishments something beyond full-on debauchery, but expect more than a day's share of Jameson, Bushmills, Guinness, O'Hara's Stout, and more on this year's guide to St. Patrick's Day Specials in Los Angeles.
