Though this might not tie into Ethnic Restaurants 100%, it does tie into my ethnic background, so I want everyone to celebrate.
St. Patrick's Day encompasses two of my favorite things: heavy food and liquor. And while our version of Corned Beef and Cabbage might not be exactly what they'd be eating in Ireland, the Jameson Whiskey and the Guinness is exactly the same. So, if you're looking for just the perfect place to be wearin' the green, or just an awesome place to be Irish for a day, head to O'Brothers Irish Pub in Historic Five Points. This year, aside from a few sprinkles, is going to be one of the best celebrations yet. The celebration basically becomes a block party, so be ready to have an awesome time. There is no cover charge and 24 different kinds of beer - I'm pretty sure that is an absolute recipe for happiness. The food is excellent bar food, and frankly after sampling 24 kinds of beer, fried food is the only thing that is going to help you.
So drive on down to Riverside - O'Brothers will be opening at 11:00am and won't close until Midnight for the St. Paddy's Day festivities!! They can be reached by phone at (904) 854-9330 and are located at (right next to Mossfire Grill):
