If rollicking Celtic tunes get your feet moving and beer happens to be your libation of choice, holy Guinness, St. Patrick’s Day is YOUR holiday! There’s no denying that Dargan’s Irish Pub and Restaurant is the place to be on this green-hued, blurry-eyed evening. The watering hole is best known for live tunes, traditional fare—think bangers and mash and fish and chips—and frothy ales on tap. Tonight, head to Dargan’s for live Irish music by Dannsair, but get there soon because this place fills up before you can say, “Top of the mornin’ to ya.”
Santa Barbara’s equally Irish minded pub the James Joyce promises music, beer, and boisterous crowds tonight. If Irish car bombs are a little to rich for your taste, ask for a local and delightfully wheaty Santa Barbara Blonde.
For something a little different, don green duds and head to SOhO Restaurant and Music Club ($5 at the door) to imbibe in celebratory food and drink specials, and move and sing along to not-so-traditional Irish/Mexican/pirate tunes by Spencer and the Worried Lads.
Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!
