St. Patrick’s Day on the Peninsula!

March 16, 2018

Saint Patrick’s Day 2018

How are you spending St. Patrick’s Day this year? Since this lucky holiday is on a Saturday this year, you should expect bigger crowds at your favorite watering holes. Here are two spots we recommend you visit this weekend. Just remember to wear green! 

Paddy Flynn’s in downtown Burlingame will offer you complimentary corned beef and fun, as they do every year! From 10am to 2pm 246 Lorton Avenue, Burlingame. 

O’Neill’s Irish Pub in downtown San Mateo is the perfect spot! Because it’s just a stroll away from the Caltrain station, it’ll be easy to forego driving for the festivities. Even better? You can grab some classic corned beef and cabbage from Bill’s Hofbrau right across the street. The celebration will start bright and early at 6am. 34 S. B Street, San Mateo.
