DALLAS (KDAF) — St. Patrick’s Day has officially arrived and there will be a buzz around North Texas Thursday night as the celebrations start once the workday ends.
If you were out and about on Saturday, March 12 in Dallas you probably got to enjoy the 41st Annual Dallas St. Patrick’s Day Parade & Festival and some festivities afterward. Now, the official day is here and why not check out a pub around Dallas?
Visit Dallas shared a couple of pubs in the city to sit down and grab a pint at after a hard day’s work:
- Harwood Arms
- Old Monk
- Blackfriar Pub
- Playwright Irish Pub
- The Irishman Pub
You could always head out to the Toyota Music Factory in Irving to celebrate the day as they’ll have Celtic sounds by Cleghorn: America’s Celtic Rock Band on the Texas Lottery Plaza starting at 6 p.m. Toyota Music Factory says, “Play the Toyota Music Factory Saint Patricks Bingo game at participating restaurants and bars for a chance to win prizes. Costume Contest on Texas Lottery® Plaza at 9PM. Enjoy Live Music, DJ’s, Specials and Promotions at 20 restaurants and bars. Wear your green and take a picture with a Leprechaun.”
