If you cannot wait until March 17, the real St. Patrick’s Day celebration, celebrate now at Paddy’s Irish Pub from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. at Pastiche Modern Eatery. This seems to be a semi yearly tradition. You’ll have to ask Pat if there is green beer and corned beef & cabbage. Erin Go Braugh! (whatever that means?)
