For the true-blooded Irish and the Irish at heart, St. Patrick’s Day is more than just a once-in-a-calendar-year holiday. Fadó Irish Pub embraces this holiday this year and is celebrating St. Patrick’s Day 2013 with 10 Days of revelry: Outdoor street festival, music, food, dancing, whiskey and more!
As Guinness has proudly proclaimed, Everyone’s Irish on March 17th, and clearly all things Irish can’t be celebrated in a single day. Fadó Irish Pub, Philly’s most authentic Irish Pub and the city’s foremost purveyor of Guinness, is once again celebrating our Irish heritage in the proper manner with a season of St. Paddy’s Day events.
From March 7th through the 17th, Fadó will be hosting a series of St. Paddy’s Day themed events, contests, tastings, and parties. These include the Jameson Whiskey Tasting & Dinner, St. Baldrick’s Foundation Charity event, 6 Nations Rugby & Super Saturday, and the stars of the show, St. Practice Day on March 9, 2013 and St. Paddy’s Day on March 17, 2013. Tickets are available online.

St. Paddy’s Day season is the perfect time to try the new menu at Fadó, which focuses on sharable, small plates and snacks made from scratch that pair perfectly with a round of pints. The menu, featuring the new, slightly posh snack and share options, includes items like the Slow Roasted Pork, Smithwick’s Mini Burgers, and Harp Lager Mac and Cheese. Other offerings, like the Chicken Boxty Quesadilla and Gaelic Steak Boxty, reimagine traditional Irish fare with savory modern flare.
