It’s that time of year again! Time to call upon whatever Irish ancestry you may or may not have, drink a Guinness, and wait in an inevitably long line up a hundreds of your new best friends! Victoria has dozens of St. Patrick’s Day activities lined up. Here are just a few.
Yates Street Taphouse
759 Yates Street
For those of us who live at The Rocket, you can’t beat the location of The Yates Street Taphouse! The atmosphere, the food, the folks that work there, the pool tables, and the drink specials certainly don’t hurt either! On St. Patrick’s Day The Taphouse will be featuring $6.50 pints of Guinness and $5 Jameson shots, as well as Chef James’ Irish Favourites menu! There will be live music from Kafoo Zalum. The best part is: no cover!
1200 Government Street
If you’re looking for the authentic Irish pub, you won’t get any closer than Irish Times! Patience is a must for a St. Patrick’s Day at Irish Times because you can be sure there will be some pretty great line ups! Luckily you’ll have an expertly poured Guinness and some live music to amuse you!
Lucky Bar : The New Groovement Live Show
While The New Groovement may be the new kid on the block, they are quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with on the funk music scene. Their opening act for Five Alarm Funk was a resounding success, and BreakOut West 2015 announced The New Groovement as Rifflandia’s showcase artists! So get your tickets early, and spend this St. Patrick’s Day at Lucky!
