St. Patty's Day Goings On

Thursday, March 17


At least one day of the year, we all want to be Irish. On Thursday, March 17, you can be as Irish as you want to be. Here's a little taste of the action. For more St. Patty's Day events, visit

Ha' Penny: A special menu featuring classics like bangers and mash will provide the sustenance you'll need while partaking in green beer and shot specials. The Irish dancers will perform around 6 p.m. and the Boise Highlanders at 8 p.m. Arm and Hammered and the Irish Volunteers start at 9 p.m. At some point during the night, a trip to Las Vegas will be given away. Best of all? No cover.

Red Room Tavern: Matt Hopper and the Roman Candles will host a benefit concert to help local musician Thomas Paul cover medical expenses. The lineup also includes New Transit, Storie Grubb and the Holy Wars, Radillac and Piers Lamb. Wear green and get $2 off the $7 donation/cover charge. The show starts at 9 p.m.

Liquid: Get your jig on with Fleet Street Klezmer who plans to "bring down the house with a set of Irish drinking songs." Celtic Resin adds to the merriment with its own brand of Irish dance tunes, and drink specials include the ever-popular green beer. The party begins at 9 p.m. and is FREE.

Hannah's: Be the "greenest" person and win some o' the green for yourself--as in $100. Starting at 6:30 p.m., the Boise Highlander Bagpipers, Giant Leprechauns and the Rocci Johnson Band will provide the dance tunes. There will be drink specials, games and prizes. There is a $5 cover after 9 p.m.
