Top 3 places to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Northern Colorado

This is a holiday rooted in Christianity, but today it’s better known for green beer and corn beef and cabbage. March 17 is the anniversary of St. Patrick’s death in the fifth century and the Irish have celebrated this date for over a thousand years. While Irish Catholics observe the holiday by attending church, Americans observe this holiday by going to the pub.

As you already know, the Mayor is a huge fan of St. Patrick’s Day. And I don’t just like the green beer. I really enjoy some authentic Irish tunes and an excellent Irish whiskey. It’s easy to find a party on St. Pat’s, but not easy to find one that actually feels Irish.

Here are my picks for best places to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Northern Colorado.   If you have a favorite, please share it in the comment section.

  1. Have been to Mike O’Shays many past St. Paddy’s Day ‘s. Good food and good music. I like the idea of going to Patrick’s this year. Thanks Mayor for the suggestion!
