Are You Ready To Go Green?
Catie Schuster has got the low down on a few places to find an Irish Feast this Sunday or at least a few holiday inspired drinks!
Portlanders love to get down and party when it comes to celebrating the holidays and St. Patrick’s Day is no exception. What better way to celebrate the holiday than with food, friends, and plenty of green! All over Portland you will find restaurants and bars preparing for the coming weekend festivities. You can have your choice of going authentic with a traditional Irish dinner or really change it up by enjoying the increasingly popular green beers that make their appearance every March. Here are a few of our favorite places that have gone all the way to bring you a fantastic St. Patty’s Day.
