Reader: Don't Encourage People to Get a Head Start on Being Drunken Low Trash

St. Patrick's Day is almost a week away, but the beer is already running green. The St. Patrick's Day Parade kicks off at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, March 12, in downtown Denver, but the real partying kicked off last night at bars all over town — many of which we included in our list of Ten Best Places to Start Celebrating St. Patrick's Day in Denver This Weekend. And it didn't take long before readers complained that our choices were blarney. Where was Nallen's? Blake Street Tavern? Celtic Tavern?  Says Jason:

How about only bars actually owned and operated by Irish publicans? Let the jackassery commence!

But then there's this from Neil: 

 Oh goody, let us encourage the drunks to get a head start on being drunken low trash.

We'll publish another list of places to party on the actual St. Patrick's Day next week; in the meantime, share information about any great events in our comments section.

And fair warning: The Colorado Department of Transportation isn't waiting to start it's St. Patrick's Day DUI enforcement, either: click here for more on the Heat Is On campaign.
