Where to Celebrate St. Patrick's Day 2015 in Baltimore

Where to Celebrate St. Patrick's Day 2015 in Baltimore

If we here at Drink Baltimore had to choose only one holiday to celebrate, we’re pretty sure we’d lean toward St. Patrick’s Day. The weather is perfect - chilly, but not so brisk as to be prohibitive to bar hopping, of course. But more importantly, it’s a day where it is as acceptable to throw back a pint with a plate of eggs at 8 in the morning as it is to sip some (maybe lots of...) whiskey while noshing on corned beef or shepherd’s pie at night. Of course, in a drinking town like Baltimore, there are plenty of places prepared to party leading up to, and on, St. Patrick’s Day. Slainte!

March 1–17
