As long as I can remember, I’ve put on something green and prepared to pinch as many unlucky friends as possible on March 17.
Nowadays, it’s less about pinching and more about having a good, old-fashioned Irish time, and Atlantans can throw a party with the best. Here are some favorite local St. Patty’s Day picks.
• Two-day block party at Fado Irish Pub beginning March 16
• Social Mess Irish Lights Festival with Lost Kings at Park Tavern on March 16
• The 161st annual Atlanta St. Patrick’s Parade down Peachtree Street
• Limerick Junction’s family-friendly St. Patrick’s Day Festival
