St. Patty’s ’09


Where to go in NYC:

Start it off right with the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade starting at 11:00 a.m. on 5th Avenue and 44th Street, heading up 5th Avenue to 86th St., where it turns east towards 3rd Avenue where it eventually ends there around 3:00 p.m.

For an original event, i suggest heading over to The Village Pour House

The Uptown (982 Amsterdam) VPHouse will be playing true Hibernian music while offering drinks specials on pints of green beer, Guinness, car bombs and shot/brew combos. However, the name of the game is “limericks” such as, “There once was a man from Nantucket…” Well, some people forget these bawdy poems are actually named after a town in Ireland—so, to show love for St. Patrick’s Day, guests will be invited to recite their favorite rhyming ditty and receive a free green beer for their effort. Even sweeter, no cover to party at this 21+ event that starts at 7 p.m. 


For those of you in the “Downtown” area, don’t worry, their 11th st and third ave location (Village Pour House) will be featuring: green apple martinis, “Kiss Me I’m Irish” shots of, er, something green and of course…the infamous green beer. There’ll be a lucky leprechaun on hand for photo moments and also to provide one fortunate fella’ or female with his hidden “pot o’ gold” (please ask before you tear at his trousers) as well as a psychic who will see what’s to come…we’re no mediums, but when green brew is involved, it’s an easy prediction that bathroom visits will be in your near, near future. Party starts at 5 p.m. with no cover and runs until the break o’ dawn (or they close—whichever comes first).
