Your St. Patrick's Day Primer

Where to drink, what to eat, a little Irish history, a good DUI lawyer, and more


St. Patrick's Day is upon us, and while the basics of celebrating the holiday properly are pretty obvious, that doesn't mean you couldn't use some pointers on how to make this the most St. Paddiest St. Paddy's Day ever.

We dialed up our resident experts to help us roadmap a better trip through the sweaty wilderness green beer and corned beef.

Below is their advice. You can thank them by not throwing up on them.

-- Get to Know Yourself: A brief refresher on C-Town's Irish history.

-- Year-Round Irish: The joints that do it 365 do it biggest on St. Patrick's Day.

-- A Foodie's Feast: St. Patrick's Day doesn't have to mean corned beef and green beer.

-- Sound Off: The music of St. Pat's will ring east to west.

-- When the Party's Over: How to wise up if you get stupid.
