St. Pat’s Day update

Today is St. Patrick’s Day and the weather should be beautiful for celebrating this evening. The biggest celebration Downtown happens on Beale outside of Silky’s, with The Raising of the Goat at 5, the Blessing of the Kegs at 5:30, and the Beale Street Pub Crawl at 6. Not sure if they are still operating on “Silky time” now that Silky is no longer with us; if they are, expect these events to actually begin 40-50 minutes after the posted start time.

If you’re looking for other events going on, here are a few. Bardog will have its annual Erin Go Braghless celebration with drink specials and giveaways. Last Saturday Panda described the outfits she and Maddison will have on for happy hour, and it doesn’t sound like there’s much to them.

Kooky Canuck will have $3 34 oz. green beer all day.

Local will have Jameson drink specials.

Flying Saucer will have an Irish menu and drink specials. The Real McCoys and the Memphis Bagpipers will perform.

I don’t have a list of specials, but Irish pub The Brass Door on Madison would be a good place to celebrate St. Pat’s.

Blind Bear is in day 3 of its St. Pat’s Speakeasy Style celebration, with specials on green beer (actually regular beer in a green bottle) and Jameson specials. One of the servers just messaged me that they will be dressed up.

Pam & Terry play Double J tonight from 5 to 7:45.

Out in the Edge, Kuzdu’s will have an Irish sing-a-long starting at 9 PM.

Behind the Headlines: Paul Morris who runs DMC on the state of Downtown Memphis.

Have you seen this man? He has been caught on camera burglarizing cars in Downtown Memphis.

I’ll be out for St. Pat’s after work. No planned schedule tonight, just going to go with the flow.
