Keep reading for the scoop on three of Denver's biggest St. Patrick's Day celebrations, but read fast: The celebration's about to start.
3. Fadó Irish Pub
1735 19th Street
Fado puts on one of the largest St. Paddy's Day parties in Denver, and this year is no exception. As usual, the Irish bar will have tents set up in the plaza across from Coors Field so that party-goers can celebrate in a little fresh air. There will be live music, dancing, Irish food, plenty of drinks and more. Doors open at 10 a.m., but the music doesn't get under way until 2 p.m.; tickets are $10 and can be bought at the door or in advance here. Check out the full lineup of events, get tickets and learn more at fadoirishpub.com.
2. Celtic Tavern
1801 Blake Street
What better place to celebrate an Irish holiday than the Celtic Tavern? The bar will be celebrating all day long — and there's no cover. For more information, call the Celtic Tavern at 303-308-1795.
1. Keggs & Eggs at Lodo's Bar & Grill
1946 Market Street
You'd better be in line outside LoDo's as you read this, or you may never get in. The eleventh annual music and drinking extravaganza will take over LoDo's starting at 7 a.m. today, with musical guests Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats, St Motel and Amzy. The event is free but fills up fast; for more information, click here.
