St. Patrick’s Day is here and suddenly, the year is almost 25% gone. How do we deal with this somewhat irrelevant fact you probably don’t care about? We pretend we’re Irish and you drink whiskey, beer, and green beer (because the latter two are completely different things). Here are a few spots in King West to check out today.
Firkin on King
461 King St. W
What you want to know, the drink deals;
- $5.00 Jameson shots
- $5.00 Lucky Charm shots
There is no cover charge so you can spend that extra cash on their St. Patrick’s Day menu, or more beer. Guinness and cheddar soup, St. James’s gate sliders, Dublin spuds, “Blarneystone” burger, and traditional Irish stew are all on the menu. They plan on having a ton of giveaways and live music from The High Rollers, Good Little Robot, and Buckfast.
600 King St. W
Get your ‘fancy’ drink on with;
- $5.00 16oz pints of Alexander Keith’s India Pale Ale
- $10.00 1L steins of Alexander Keith’s India Pale Ale
- Green Keith’s Beer
In your drunken stupor, you may even win their giveaway, a Keith’s mini fridge. Cover is $5.00 after 4:00p.m. and all proceeds go to the Merry Go Round Children’s Foundation (you’re drinking for a good cause, so go on and have another round!).
The Lauren Roy Band will be playing. Live music + Beer + Free stuff = Good times.
391 King St. W
What you really need to know;
- NO GREEN BEER.
No green beer? Bar Hop isn’t doing anything specific for St. Patrick’s Day, but with good ole fashioned beer and “buck a shuck” oyster specials on Tuesday, it’s definitely worth checking out.
