St. Patrick’s Day

McTeggart School

Top o’ the Morning, to ya! St. Patrick’s Day is next week and we want to give you a couple of ideas to think about for where to be Irish and knock back a green beer or two.


Griff’s of Houston doesn’t want you to even think of slowing down after the last of the Mardi Gras beads have been tossed. At Griff’s, St. Patrick’s Day isn’t just one bloody day. It’s almost two full weeks of celebration, and you’ve already missed some of it. So, if it’s all things Irish, green and shamrocks you are looking for this week to celebrate the day when everyone is Irish, look no further than Griff’s.


If you want to go to the Houston St. Patrick’s Parade, join the caravan Green Tide that departs from Griff’s at 10am. When you’ve had your fill of floats and the bouncing curls of Irish dancers come back to Griff’s with the caravan for the Irish Stew, Chili, Chicken, Open Irish Dish Cook-Off. There will be more live music all afternoon, and PLENTY of beer.


You get a bit of a break before the revelry kicks back up on St. Patrick’s Day, so get plenty of sleep and drink plenty of water. You’re going to need it. Griff’s gets all things going green at 2pm with non-stop music throughout the day on two stages featuring 9 bands.


But maybe heading into Houston wasn’t in your plans. You’d rather stick close to home to cut down on cab fare. Look no further than The Goose’s Acre Bistro & Irish Pub.


Start the day off right when The Goose’s Acre opens at 8am for breakfast. They start serving lunch and dinner at 11am, the same time the music gets going, until 1am, an hour before the music ends. Be entertained by Irish dancers, or people enjoying the Tuaca Ice Block. It’s the best place close to home to get your Irish on.


Wherever you decide to party, please drink responsibly!
