The weekend is almost here and not only that this weekend is Saint Patrick's day so if you need ideas on what to do in the Bayou City then here is a look at What's Going Down in H-Town!
This Friday is the eve of Saint Patrick's Day and Lucky's Pub will be celebrating it Times Square style but instead of dropping a ball they will be dropping…. A leprechaun at midnight… yup you heard that right. A Leprechaun. It'll be this Friday kicking off at 6. The first 500 tickets are free but after that tickets are ten bucks.
And when Saint Patricks Day finally rolls around Saint Arnold Brewery will host a whole day of events starting off with a Special Irish Breakfast. The festivities will continue throughout the day with live music, special beer releases, food trucks, a world elevated beer pouring championship and the Donegal Beard Growing competition which will be judge by yours truly so I want to see some intense beards when I head out! The party is free to attend but tickets to the irish breakfast will be 40 dollars. The event is this Saturday from 10 in the morning till 6.
Or make your way over to downtown for the St. Patricks Day Parade that will honor Houston's first responders. The will be plenty of spots along the parade route for fans. It begins at Minute Maid Park and will end at Lucky's Pub. It'll begin at noon and is free to attend.
Or maybe use the luck of the irish to win a race! This Sunday will be the St. Paddy's half marathon at Sugarland Town Square. Work off all the green beer you've had by running a 13 point 1 mile loop. Runners will be dressing up in Irish gear and there will be a costume contest following the race. It begins at 7:15 in the morning. Be sure to register for the race before you head out!
