Irish Pubs & Parades Within Driving Distance of the Evansville Owensboro Area to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day
Since 2023 isn't a Leap Year, our journey into March came a day sooner! With Spring right around the corner, we are also on the approach to Saint Patrick's Day. Which for me has kind of always been the unofficial start of spring. With just a couple weeks to go until the festive holiday's arrival, here are some top spots to grab a verdant brew in the tristate and beyond.

Other Green Beverages to try!
- Midori Sour
- Tokyo Tea
- Death in the Afternoon
- Fuzzy Leprechaun
- Liquid Marijuana
- Irish Sour Apple
- Green Apple Martini
The recipes for these cocktails can be found by doing a quick search on Pinterest! If going out isn't your idea of fun, but you are still wanting to celebrate, try adding a bit of blue food coloring to light-colored beer varieties.
The best way to celebrate is by making use of the luck of the Irish by solidifying your Designated Driver for the evening. Wouldn't want to ruin the fun by getting pinched by handcuffs instead of your lack of green apparel.
