St. Patrick's Day celebrations started a couple of days early in Denver. St. Patrick's Day Bikes and Beer, organized by Denver Coed Soccer, had bikers visiting three pubs, ending with a viewing party for the Rapids' season opener at New York, and raised money for the adult soccer group. On South Pearl Street, a block party was hosted Saturday, featuring food, dancing, and plenty of green beer. Our photographers were out and about catching all the excess. Look at the photos below and then click the links at the end for the full slide shows.
