St. Patrick's Day is one of the biggest celebrations on a whole that Clevelanders hold during the year. If you're not willing to venture out to the parade downtown, there are plenty of options around the city.
Claddagh Irish Pub is a great option for those green beer drinkers on the East side. At 8 a.m., there will be kegs 'n' eggs and the musical performances start at 9 a.m. The following is the lineup for the day:
9:00 a.m. Tim O'Conner
11:00 a.m. Traditional Irish Dancers
11:30 a.m. Johnny and Danny
1:30 p.m. local Bagpipers
2:00 p.m. McSpillen
5:30 p.m. Johnny and Danny

Flannery's Pub is also an option for the live music lovers. When the doors open at 6 a.m., breakfast burritos will be served and the lines will begin to form, so be sure to prepare and come early! Beginning at 1 p.m., there will be a $5 cover charge because the band, The Boys From County Hell, will take the stage until 8 p.m. There will also be a $35 minimum on cards and the pub won't be serving liquor until 11 a.m., as it is a Sunday.
Flat Iron Cafe is over 100 years old, so you can be sure this Irish legend will have some fun in store on St. Patrick's Day. The doors open at 7 a.m. with kegs 'n' eggs and live music from Donal O'Shaughnessy beginning at 11 a.m. The Cafe will also be providing free shuttle rides to and from the parade throughout the day.
The Barley House is hosting its second annual St. Patrick's Day party. The doors open at 7 a.m. with kegs 'n' eggs and the parking lot will open up at 11 a.m. for outdoor fun. The Irish American Club Bagpipe Band will be performing along with Irish Dancers. There will be corned beef for enjoyment and Cleveland pride St. Patty's Day shirts for sale.
Finally, if you're not interested in drinking green beer or listening to live Irish entertainment, you can always go to Slyman's for some of the best corned beef in town. It opens at 6 a.m. and will be serving the legendary sandwiches all day!
