By now, you should have your St. Patrick's Day itinerary down pat. Perhaps it will involve a bar or two or three. You may shout, "Erin go bragh!" Consumption of green beer is most likely in the cards.
To that end, there's a veritable pot o' gold at the rainbow's end: Celtic Crossing, Dan McGuinness, Kudzu's, T.J. Mulligan's, the Brass Door, Patrick's, and the Dublin House. And don't forget about the never-not-fun St. Patrick's Day Parade on Beale, starting at 4 p.m.
There's an alternative route, too, for March 17th, and the path's just as green. From 2 to 4 p.m., the good folks at the historic Elmwood Cemetery will be hosting "Suds & Spuds: The History of Scots-Irish at Elmwood." This event will feature a walking tour with special emphasis on the cemetery's Scots-Irish residents as well as beer and a baked potato bar ($25, to register: elmwoodcemetery.org).
Death Du Jour Mystery Theater will have another mystery in play, starting at 7 p.m. at Spaghetti Warehouse. This one's titled Shamrock 'n' Roll ($38).
And then there's the St. Patrick's Day Comedy and Blues Jam at the New Daisy, starting at 8 p.m. While this holiday may not normally conjure up thoughts of comedy and the blues, just roll with it. The evening's entertainment includes Honest John, Mark Muleman, and Toni Green, and it will be filmed for the History Channel's Hairy Bikers TV show ($24-$45).
