If you’re enough lucky to be Irish... You’re lucky enough! In fact, Trulia calls Philadelphia a top 5 city to celebrate St.Patricks day and since it's also Friday we thought we would spice up your Jameson with some of the best places to check out this weekend (if you’re wearing green). Plus, you won’t need the luck of the Irish to score these awesome deals on drinks and food around the city.
Get in the corn beef spirit at South Philly’s Bridget Foy’s, where they have been serving food and drink specials all week. It's the last day to taste their version of Guinness beef stew and savor some Bassett’s Irish coffee Ice cream.... making rolling home a distinct posiblity.
Live performances from Bangarang will be the soundtrack to enjoying classic Irish car bombs and green beer with friends. Parking is free after 8pm and the night will end in a cash balloon drop.
Irish jig up to the dueling pianos bar at 258 S. 15th Street, to Howl at the Moon Friday night. Known for their unique nightlife of live 80's and 90's rock and pop hits, Howl at the Moon will serve St.Paddy's drink specials from 2-6 pm. Specials include a 86 oz. Get Lucky bucket, which is a bucket filled with a mixed drink and green draft beer that will guarantee a full house.
McGillin’s Old Ale House has been around since the year Lincoln was elected. The beer has been cold and flowing from this Center City Irish pub since 1860, making it Philadelphia’s oldest operating tavern. Drawing a classic crowd, the Ale House will serve pitcher specials this Irish holiday including:
$6.50 Pabst Blue Ribbon
$8.50 Bud Light, Miller Lite, and Yuengling Light
If you are looking for something a little more charitable to stumble through clovers to, try heading down to the Ardmore Music Hall for their St.Paddy’s Day Party with Jelly Roll, Philly’s original horn party band. Proceeds will benefit Home, A Rockumentary celebrating Andrew Jackson School’s Student Rock Band.
Tickets are $20 with $10 off at the door with a valid student ID. The venue is fantastically accessible to the city region. Hop on the Paoli/Thorndale (R-5) Regional Rail line to the Ardmore Station, steps away from the Ardmore Music Hall back door.
The Philly Home Girls hope to see you out and about this weekend! Have any questions about the neighborhoods? Feel free to drop us a line!
