Five Date Ideas for St. Patrick’s Day
#1.) Go on a Pub Crawl. Sure, it’s cliché, but who cares! The trick is to find at least one REAL Irish pub (and we’ve definitely got a few around here)hopefully with some live Irish folk music.
#2.) Make Your Own Drinks. You can make green beer yourself by adding blue food coloring to a light beer. Yep, blue food coloring. Or if you want a more sophisticated drink, try an Emerald Isle, which is a green martini or an Irish Cactus, which combines tequila and Baileys. And remember that St. Patrick’s Day doesn’t have to include ‘Irish Car Bombs’ but on the other hand they’re a great way to get things going.
#3.) Cook an Irish Dinner. Cook up a stereotypical Irish feast of corned beef and cabbage or Shepherd’s Pie. And finish it off with an Irish coffee. If you’re looking for a killer corned beef and cabbage recipe, check out mine here.
#4.) Watch an Irish-themed Movie. Watch a movie with an Irish theme but go with something less obvious, like “The Departed” or “P.S., I Love You”.
#5.) Play the “Four Leaf Clover Game”. Basically, you just buy some big four leaf clovers at a party store and write activities on the back of them. Then take turns picking a clover and doing the activity written on it.
