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.
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.
