What if you don’t feel like getting a beer at 6 a.m.? Is there any way to salvage your Saint Patrick’s Day?
Of course, with O’Nati’s Irish Pub. What’s O’Nati’s Irish Pub? Glad you asked. It’s a once-a-year Irish pub that takes over Fountain Square with live music, food and fun (including booze). This year's event is sponsored by McCormick & Schmick's and Guinness.
Starting at a much more reasonable hour, 10 a.m., and running until 10 p.m., it’s the perfect place to set up camp to watch the parade go by and then celebrate the rest of the day with several Guinness (Guinnesses? Guinni?).
Live music starts at 1 p.m. with The Tigerlillies, followed by Mt. Pleasant String Band (2:05 p.m.), Magnolia Mountain (3:10 p.m.), The Super Desserts (4:15 p.m.), The Tillers (5:20 p.m.), The Buffalo Killers (6:25 p.m.) and Deer Tick (8 p.m.). Erin Go Bragh!
