St. Patrick's Day in South Florida: Ten Places to Celebrate in Broward and Palm Beach
A Saint Patrick's Day Weekend Celebration
Some holidays are worth celebrating for days on end. St. Paddy's Day is definitely one of them. Taking place from Friday through Monday at Murphy's Law, starting each day at 11 a.m, the festivities include two stages with live bands, happy hour specials, Irish dancers, corned beef and cabbage, and, obviously, green beer.
St. Patrick's Day With an Asian Twist at Coco Asian Bistro
Asian and Irish don't sound like a coherent holiday, but hey, everyone is Irish on St. Paddy's Day. Coco Asian Bistro will be decked out from Friday through Monday, and it's serving commemorative dishes and green drinks, like the corned beef roll and the Irish appletini. There is live music on Friday and Saturday nights.
The Office Celebrating With St. Patrick's Day Specials
The American gastropub is going green -- like, Irish green, not eco-friendly -- Saturday through Monday with food and drinks specials. The Office's executive chef, Bryan Ramos, is offering grilled Reuben sandwich with fries as well as corned beef and cabbage. The bar is offering half-off James Irish Whiskey shots, Irish Car Bombs, and the Electric Lemonade cocktail.
BC Cafe's St. Patrick's Day Menu
This Davie café is ringing in the holiday with some Irish-themed specials. For breakfast, BC Cafe is serving Lucky Charm pancakes and a green frittata made with zucchini, broccoli, and kale. For lunch, the taco is going to the Paddys with corned beef and braised cabbage taco with mustard aioli.
Celebrate St. Patty's Day in the RA
With locations in Broward and Palm Beach counties, this sushi chain is spreading the deals around for the day. The restaurant is offering drink specials to get your drinking like the Irish with $1 green hot sake, $4 Jameson Irish Whiskey shots, $5 Melon Margaritas and Kirin/Kirin Light, or $6 Irish Car Bombs. If green drinks aren't your thing, throughout March, RA Sushi is also offering its signature Sea Monkey cocktail for only $6. This sweet and colorful martini is made with Skyy raspberry vodka, Chambord, and pineapple and cranberry juices.
Enjoy an Authentic Irish Meal This St. Patrick's Day at Stout Bar & Grill
The North Lauderdale Irish pub's newly revamped menu includes a selection of Irish specialties, including bangers and mash, fish and chips, calf's liver and onions, shepherd's pie, and corned beef and cabbage. Every Saturday, Sunday, and St. Patrick's Day, Stout offers a hangover-curing -- and nap-inducing -- Irish breakfast, with two eggs cooked to order, two Irish sausages, Irish bacon, tomatoes, button mushrooms, baked beans, blood pudding, white pudding, and toast.
St. Patrick's Day at Havana Hideout
Havana Hideout, a Palm Beach County favorite, is doing St. Paddy's Day Latin-style. The restaurant is serving Irish banger, potato, and cheese empanadas on Saturday and Sunday (until they're gone).
Arby's Buy One, Get One
When it comes to holidays, fast-food chains are probably not the first places you'd think to celebrate -- if you're looking for a deal, it should be. Saturday through Monday, Arby's is offering twofers on its corned beef Reubana with Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and Thousand Island dressing. For March, the chain is offering a trade-up option in which diners can get a double stack or a combo for an extra buck.
