3. O'Shea's Irish Pub
10 am, Monday, March 17, 531, Clematis St., West Palm Beach. Visit Facebook.
The streets will be closed for this festivity, so you know it'll be a good one. Clematis will provide activities to get you silly with drink along with other less drunken attractions. Also, there's a kid zone for you to dump your little brother and sister off at. Hell, maybe you'll want to get in the bounce house, too.
4. Delray's St. Patrick's Day International Fire Fighters Parade
11 a.m., Friday and Saturday, March 14 and 15 at 140 NE 1st St., Delray Beach. Visit Facebook.
This event has been going on for 47 years, so clearly they must be doing something right! Delray hosts a St. Paddy's Day parade for all the brave men and women fighting fires for our safety. So what better way to express your gratitude for smoking up the kitchen that one time with your burnt popcorn than to show up in full green regalia?
5. The Black Rose Irish Pub's Annual St. Patrick's Day Celebration
7 a.m., Friday to Monday, March 14 to 17, at the Black Rose Irish Pub, 234 South Federal Hwy., Boca Raton. Visit Facebook.
The Black Rose promises not two, not three, but four days of Irish festivities. Friday, there's music by Marc Claus on the patio and video DJ Stephen Galluzi will be present to make ya jig. And to beat the band: There's half off of all beer, liquor, and wine. Saturday features the same specials with a broadcasting of the UFC fight and Sunday has a happy hour as well. Monday, the big day, plan for live music, genuine Irish food, ice luges, Irish dancers and more. The party starts at 7 in the morn' with an Irish breakfast of "kegs and eggs."
