If you can't find fun today, you're not looking. A good place to start -- and end -- your St. Patrick's Day celebration is Katie Mullen's, the new - and giant - Irish pub at 1550 Court Place, which will be bringing in Irish entertainment all day after opening at 8:30 a.m.
But beating Katie Mullen's by half an hour is the Fainting Goat, at 846 Broadway, which will be serving pancakes and beer at 8 a.m. today. Jonathan Shikes, Westword's managing editor who has a March 17 birthday, will be blogging from the bar all day; stop by and buy him a birthday beer. They're only 25 cents the first hour and will go up 25 cents every hour thereafter.
You're looking a little green....
