Patch Picks: Six Places to Celebrate St. Patrick's Day
Southwest Minneapolis is not rife with Irish bars. But the wealth of great restaurants does provide some alternative to a St. Patrick's Day of boozing.
Minneapolis St. Patrick's Day Parade: 6:30 p.m., at Nicollet Mall in Minneapolis.
Clancey's Meat and Fish: Enjoy their house corned beef, but call ahead because it goes quickly.
Driftwood Char Bar: They might not be Irish, but seeing a band like The New Distractions at a place like Driftwood fits into the scheme of St. Patrick's Day. 21+, 9 p.m.
In Season: This place's name speaks for itself: Fresh cuisine in the Armatage neighborhood.
Cause Spirits and Sound Bar: They're planning a TBD St. Patricks Day show. 9:30 pm., 21+.
Lowbrow: Good place to get a beer and appetizers like tofu sticks or deviled eggs.
