If you’ve only got one thing on your mind, then follow a St. Patrick’s Day pub crawl held March 13, 14 and 17 in various parts of Manhattan. For $5, you get a cup, a wristband and a map of bars serving all the discounted beer you can responsibly quaff — remember, it’s a school night!
The $30 admission to Rochelle’s (205 Chrystie St.) and 205 Club’s March 17 soiree includes two drinks and passed themed appetizers like corned beef sliders from 5-7 p.m., but the party continues until 8.
New American spot Louro (142 W. 10th St.) is switching to an all Irish (minus the green beer — see below) menu for March 16's edition of its Nossa Mesa supper club ($55, 7 p.m., BYOB). Nosh on shepherd’s pie, Irish whisky and cheddar soup, and the Dublin Coddle.
For a taste of pure Irish hospitality, Thistle Hill Tavern (441 Seventh Ave., Brooklyn) is hosting Guinness Storehouse’s executive chef, Justin O’Connor, on March 12 for a St. Patrick’s Day-inspired three-course dinner ($69, including drinks!) all to the tune of a bagpiper to set the mood.
Pier A Harbor House (22 Battery Place) is putting its massive new space to use all this weekend and beyond, with live Irish music on March 13 and 16, a whisky tasting with free hors d’oeuvres on March 14 and food and drink specials on March 17.
Two cultures with strong folk music traditions come together in West Virginia’s Irish American group The Bing Brothers Band on March 14 at Symphony Space (2537 Broadway) for a night of Celtic Appalachia.
For something completely different, Crave.it is holding a Green Cooking Class for a three-course small-plates menu, including gnocchi with green tea matcha and pistachio macarons. March 13, 6:30 p.m. $60 pp or $100/couple, 212-255-4048.
Or go on a different kind of bar crawl that begins with a 20-minute exercise class at Union Square's Reebok FitHub, followed by cold-pressed juices at nearby juice bars. Juice Crawl takes place March 14; tickets are $45 and include a gift bag.
