Corkboard: Who has the best St. Patrick's Day specials?

look at these silly people with their silly green hair! that's  silly!In today's Live section, I tossed out five solid St. Patrick's Day options, from food to family to falling-down-drunk.

I also wrote about the parade. Dig it.

Now, I'd like some Baltimore bar and club owners to weigh in:

What are your specials? What time do they start? What should people know ahead of time?

Please dish!

And happy almost-St. Patrick's Day, everybody!

No shame in that game, huh Jason Z.

Jesus. I can't blame you for trying to get the word out, but this is goes a little far.

@ Don't Shake the Baby

Don't hate the player....

At least I didn't mention my March Madness specials that start next Thursday.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to keep it simple this year.
I'll try better next time.

Riverside Park:

Free mugs of rain water from 6am to 6pm Saturday. Mud wrestling all-day long.

After looking it over and coming to my senses, that is a little too much. I'll be more careful next time. I just copied and pasted it. My bad!!

I'll keep my game in check;)

And don't forget, on St. Patty's day, if you're drinking it up, take a free taxi home. Starts at 4pm and goes till the wee hours of Thursday. Free fares up to $50, but they'll only take you home..1-877-963-TAXI

The only special that the management at FuL is running is that there are no specials.

And Sessa still isn't invited.


First person using my sally port as a Port A John gets a warning shot. Second, not as lucky.

Whoops, just realized I'm not in Texas any more. Will stick to the airhorn.

I have the best specials and you are not invited. I will get my own Guiness and chill with friends because I don't feel like dealing with parking issues and stupid drunk people all while spending too much money for green beer.


That cereal bar sounds COOL! Sounds worth checking out as I avoid Irish Pubs on St Pats. Too packed for my taste :-)

I'm taking my one cent Guiness and using that as the milk for my free Lucky Charms.

All 3 Looney's will have Happy Hour 8am-12 98 rock broadcasts live from Canton at 6am

Slainte Irish Pub and Restaurant will open at 6am to welcome families and friends for breakfast before/after church.
UEFA Champions League on TVs at 3:45pm

Heineken Girls at 6pm
Irish Dancing Girls at night
Kitchen opens from 6am to midnight!
No Green Beers, Slainte respects Beer!

Captain O'Larry's will be open at 11:30am on St Paddy's Day (prior 6am openings with not so good results for those who actually showed up at 6am have resulted in the 11:30 time change!)
$4 Murphys, Powers Shots & Car Bombs ALL Day long with give aways!
$2 Bowls O'Lucky Charms with Murphys!
Lunch & Dinner Irish Menu specials including Shepherd's Pie & Cornbeef & Cabbage!

Patrick's of Pratt will be open at noon with an Irish menu & specials all day long.

The blog has a full of inofrmation which I have been looking for and not only this it also helps us in getting the correct facts and figures. The blogger has done a really good work in updating his blog. Keep it up
