Your Guide to St. Patrick’s Day Parties and Pub Crawls on O‘ahu
Where to find live music, after parties, at-sea dancing, beer gardens and golf balls.
What’s the craic? There’s good news and bad news about St. Patrick’s Day celebrations this year, so here’s the bad: No Downtown block party in front of Murphy’s Bar & Grill. The Irish pub will be open with drink specials and dine-in and takeout food specials, which is good news. But there’s more: A bunch of parties and pub crawls are happening this weekend with everything from hop-on-hop-off trolleys to after parties and dancing at sea. All will feature drink specials, and all are strictly for the 21-and-over crowd. Sláinte!
