Mar. 15th – The St. Paddy’s Day Warmup
Grand Ledge St. Patrick’s Day Parade

Mar. 17th – St. Paddy’s Day
Shamrock And Shopping Anyone? (Claddagh’s Irish Pub)
Claddagh’s Irish Pub will open at 7am with drink specials all day long. Music starts at 10 a.m. with the Mike Vidal Duo, followed by the Rick Burkholder Duo at 1:30 p.m., and the Jake Stevens Band at 5 p.m. And, if you need a little fresh air, Claddagh’s is based in Eastwood Town Center, so you can get in a little shopping while you sober up. For more information, call 517-484-2523.
Check Out The “Capitol” In The Capitol. (Dublin Square Irish Pub)
Dublin Square Irish Pub is a St. Patty’s mainstay in the Greater Lansing Area. If you’re looking for a good time, it’s the place to be. It’s celebrating all day Saturday from 7 a.m.-2 a.m. and all day Monday from 7 a.m.-2 a.m. It’s not uncommon to see a lengthy line on St. Patty’s Day, so get a spot early. For more information, call 517-351-2222.
Down A Beer In A Downtown Bar Crawl. (Edmunds, The Black Rose, Troppo, Tavern on the Square)
If you’re familiar with Edmunds and its attached bar, The Black Rose, you know the breakfast is awesome. Join them on St. Patty’s Day at 7:30 a.m. for a $5.00 breakfast buffet. First Responders in the Tri-County Area (Ingham, Eaton, Clinton) eat free. Make sure you pick up your four leaf clover punch card from either of those locations, and participate in the bar crawl to Troppo and Tavern on the Square. The first 250 people with a full card get a T-shirt. For more information, call 517-371-8700.
Enjoy the festivities, but drink responsibly and use your feet, a cab, or mass transportation to get you to and from your destinations.
