Are you ready to get your green on? There are lots of events this weekend to celebrate the saint that banished snakes out of Ireland and we’re here for it.
Here’s what’s happening around Alberta (warning…suggestions will include places for you to have an adult bevvie).
St. James Gate – One of my all time favourite places to go when in Banff for a pint of the good stuff. St. James Gate is a natural place to go on March 17th on account it’s an actual Irish pub. There’s beer specials. Kids are usually allowed for lunch, but best to check ahead to make sure you can have a sneaky one while they eat fries.
Shamrocks & Shenanigans happening on March 16 at Heritage Park means enjoying culinary experience celebrating the best of the Ireland while enjoying local band, Cabot’s Crossing. Price is $69.95 and tickets can be purchased here.
