St. Patrick's Day is on Tuesday. So if you're Irish, or sort of want to be Irish, or have ever met anyone who knows roughly where Ireland is on a map, you're probably planning on taking a half day and jumping in the octagon with your liver for a twelve-hour, no-shots-barred throwdown.
Well: Us too! But that doesn't mean we can't also do something before, after or while we get drunk. So that's why we put together a little roster of St. Patrick's Day-related events, both on our music page (concerts, beer, etc.) and our events page (parades, beer, etc.).
Use them, and check back next week to see what events have been added.
Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
