Where to Go When You’re Wearing St. Pat’s Green on March 17

St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, is one step ahead of the weekend this year, falling on a Thursday. So what are Atlanta leprechauns to do? Start the weekend early and take advantage of charming chow specials, lucky green drinks and a charming cache of handcrafted ice creams chosen to get your “Ire” (-land) up!

St. Paddy’s Day churns up the Irish in all of us, as does the Lick O’ The Irish premium ice cream collection from 
High Road Craft Ice Cream & Sorbet. The frosty jackpot features two pints each of golden Caramel Pecan, green Fresh Mint Chip, boozy Bourbon Burnt Sugar, and Vanilla Fleur de Sel – to top off a pint of Guinness. Order through High Road’s online store for $139, including shipping. O’cheers, y’all!

If that’s not enough to satisfy your sweet tooth, 
Sublime Doughnuts’ thin mint doughnut should do the trick: Chocolate yeast-raised doughnut topped with peppermint icing, crushed thin mint cookies and chocolate ganache ($2).

Stop looking for four-leaf clovers and head to 
HOBNOB Neighborhood Tavern where St. Pat’s Day doors open at 11:30 a.m. to charm Midtowners with $5 SweetWater 420-gone-green beers, $16 corned beef and cabbage and rollicking live music. What luck! HOBNOB’s usual Thursday night barbecue specials will still be available to keep diehard Irish-Southerners happy and full.

Grownup lads and lassies struggling to master Irish jig steps may find success after a couple of complimentary Irish shooters at 
Johnny’s Hideaway. The foot-loosening libations and corned beef and cabbage are on the house St. Pat’s night from 6-7 p.m.

Still can’t wait for St. Pat’s Day pot of golden goodies at the end of the rainbow? 
ShamRock the Station barrels through Atlantic Station with a whole day of bands, food, drinks and fun for the whole family on Saturday, March 12. Info above.
