Green Wave 

On your mark, get set, go Irish.

And first things first this St. Patrick's Day is a bright-and-early opening of 9 a.m. at Celtic Crossing. The bands start at 10:30 a.m., and somewhere between then and 3 a.m., there will be giveaways, corned beef and cabbage, Irish dancers, and a leprechaun. (FYI: This year's leprechaun is different from last year's leprechaun.)

Green-beer enthusiasts can rest assured that a stop by a T.J. Mulligan's or a Dan McGuinness will indeed have their needs met. There will be live music at all locations as well, and corned beef and cabbage at the Mulligan's in the Pinch. The Dan McGuinness in Southaven is offering $5.95 fish & chips.

There's green beer too at Kooky Canuck (ditto: Bardog and the Fitz casino).

Kooky Canuck also is offering a $100 prize to the person wearing the most green. Down the street at the Flying Saucer, the Highland Bagpipers perform at 7 p.m., and in Midtown at the newly open Dublin House, there will be an Irish DJ from 6 p.m. to close. At Boscos Squared, patrons will receive a St. Patrick's Day pint glass with their first order of Boscos Irish Stout.

And while Silky O'Sullivan's bills itself as a place "where every day is like St. Patrick's Day," there is only one time of year for the Blessing of the Kegs and the Raising of the Goats. The fun starts at 5 p.m.
