St.Patrick’s Day is Thursday night, so plan on taking Friday off. Here are the parties to be at this week:
 

Murphy’s Bar & Grill once again closes down Merchant Street and Nuuanu Avenue for its annual St. Patrick’s Day block party. Wear green and grab a beer as you meander your way through the crowds. Listen to music by the Doolin’ Rakes and Elephant, and check out Murphy’s Guinness Oyster Bar for food. Murphy’s opens at 11 a.m. for lunch, street festival begins at noon, but the real party begins at night. 2 Merchant St., Chinatown.

Rage the rest of the night at my favorite place to dance in Chinatown—SoHo. Hip hop, Top 40 and mash-up will play in the front room, while house music plays in the side room. It gets crowded, so arrive early. 21+, 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. 80 S. Pauahi St., Chinatown.

If you’d like to take a shot of Irish whiskey without the crowd knocking your drink out of your hand, head to Pearl for its Luck of the Irish party. The music begins at 4:30 p.m. and enjoy happy hour until 8 p.m. There will also be $5 Irish Car Bombs, $3 Guiness, $3 Steinlager Pure, and $3 Jamesons and Baileys all night. No Cover, 4:30 p.m. to 2 a.m., Ala Moana Center.

Also, Apartment3 is celebrating St. Patrick's Day with $2 green drafts, $3 Guinness and Jameson's, a happy hour menu until 8 p.m., and food until 11:30 p.m. No cover, 6 p.m. Stylish attire only after 9 p.m. Third floor Century Center, 1750 Kalakaua Ave.

If Thursday night was too tame for you, visit Wet ‘n’ Wild Friday night for the Spring Break Party of the Year. There will be three stages playing Hip-Hop and club hits, live reggae, dancehall and reggaeton beginning at 8 p.m.. Snooki and Mike “The Situation” from Jersey Shore will be hosting one stage at the block party, while the Lucky Charms rave kicks off at stage three with DJ Irene. 18+, 8 p.m. to 2 a.m., $20 presale, buy here. 400 Farrington Hwy., Kapolei.
