We know you're planning to get your Irish on later tonight, but if you want to get your St. Paddy's party started early, a stop by Lovely Confections Bakery (1489 Steele St.) will do you good. The cupcake shop is offering two holiday specialty flavors: Irish Car Bomb (Guinness cupcake with a milk chocolate Bailey's frosting) and Nutty Irishman (hazelnut cupcake topped with vanilla buttercream and a drizzle of Irish whiskey ganache).

To sweeten the deal, you could get one or both of these bad boys for free today.

Lovely Confections celebrating with free cupcakes

It's the luck of the Irish: Find a shamrock hidden on the bottom of your cupcake and it's yours for free. Not one for gambling? Show up wearing a little celebratory green and you'll automatically get a free mini cupcake with your fullsized purchase. The big cupcakes are $3 each, which is a steal when you're getting two.

And in case you're actively avoiding that stretch of Colfax near the Irish Snug today, no worries: Lovely Confections will be offering the flavors through the weekend, so you'll have extra time to kick back with this sweet treat.
