Yesterday, we mentioned a list of things to do in St. Paul on St. Patrick’s Day (Day 300), starting with a beer breakfast beginning at 8am, and continuing with a parade at noon and some fun throughout the afternoon.
The good news is you can start in St. Paul, then go to Minneapolis later in the afternoon and not miss a beat.
St. Patrick’s Day Parade
While St. Paul’s parade begins at noon, the one in Minneapolis doesn’t start until 6:30pm. The Minneapolis version of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade will begin at 13th and Nicollet, and march up Nicollet to 5th before it disperses. There’s lots of great places along Nicollet to catch the action.
Leprechaun Pub Crawl
We mentioned yesterday that in St. Paul, the crawl was actually 3 different crawls and that, unfortunately, it was closed to new signups. Well, the Minneapolis Leprechaun Pub Crawl, while also closed to signups, is much larger in scope. In Minneapolis, it’s actually 6 separate crawls. Hit ’em all if you want, but pace yourself and be responsible.
The Minneapolis crawls
1. Downtown-First Avenue
This crawl will hit Ugly Mug (6 – 7pm), The Shouthouse (7 – 8pm), O’Donovans (8 – 9pm), and Kieran’s (9 – 11pm).
2. 7 Corners
Participating in the 7 Corners crawl is Grumpy’s (6 – 7pm), Corner Bar (7:30 – 8:30pm), Bullwinkle’s (8:30 – 9:30pm), and Preston’s (9:30 – 11pm).
3. Stadium Village-U of M
The U of M crawl will go to Stub & Herbs (6 – 7pm), Big Ten (7 – 8pm), Sally’s (8 – 9pm), and Campus Pizza (9 – 11pm).
Head to Uptown to hang out at Williams (6 – 7:30pm), Old Chicago (7:30 – 9pm), and Stella’s (9pm – 11pm).
Northeast Minneapolis pubs you can crawl to include U Otter Stop Inn (6 – 7:30pm), Whitey’s (7:30 – 8:30pm), Keegans (8:30 – 9:30pm), and Mac’s Industrial (9:30 – 11pm).
Start your crawl along Nicollet during the parade, and hit Brit’s (6 – 7pm), The Local (7:15 – 8:45pm) w/ Cities 97 Live Broadcast, and Hells Kitchen (9 – 11pm).
Again the Leprechaun Pub Crawl, officially, is closed to new signups, but join the crawlers anyway. A good time will be had by all. You won’t even miss the party favors.
Blarney Pub & Grill
While not officially part of the festivities, Blarney Pub & Grill is a favorite in the Dinkytown neighborhood. They’ll keep the green beer flowing and offer live music beginning at 6pm. Stop by and join in the fun.
