St. Patrick’s Day Weekend is upon us, and considering this holiday is Christmas for day drinkers, there’s no reason to be stuck on campus all day. So without further ado, this is Vox’s perfect St. Patty’s weekend itinerary.
The Smithsonian American Art Museum is hosting Gamefest!, a three day celebration of the art of video games. And on Friday night, you can see Jeff Bridges before he was the Dude in an 8:30 p.m. screening of Tron. Check out a schedule of panel discussions and signings here.
Celebrate St. Patty’s Day Eve at The Chieftains concert at the Kennedy Center. The 8 p.m. concert will, unfortunately, not be giving out free Guinness.
Georgetown’s musical talent from The Guild of Bands will be performing in Rock Against Cancer at Bulldog Alley from 6 to 9 p.m. All proceeds go to the on-campus Lombardi Cancer Center.
Go to McNeir Hall for the GU Children’s Theater’s terrifying performance of The Wolves in the Walls. I don’t think I can summon the guts to make this show, especially considering my greatest fear as a child was that there were wolves in the walls.
Want to get drunk before the sun rises? At 7 a.m., Fado Irish Pub in Chinatown starts Paddython 2012. Events include a screening of the Six Nations rugby tournament (England and Ireland play each other at 1 p.m.) This is where you’ll find the true-blue St. Patty’s Day fans, although I’m not sure I want to know who they are.
Need more booze? Irish Whiskey Public House in DuPont Circle will be serving all the alcohol you need to properly get through the day. Unfortunately, this bar opens at 9 a.m., so early birds may want to look elsewhere.
Top off your day of debauchery with a GPB screening of Puss in Boots at the ICC auditorium (9:30 p.m. and midnight). If you’re not interested now, St. Patty’s Day might help you change your mind.
Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey: Fully Charged is at the Verizon Center! I’m guessing PETA donations will be flying through the roof as horrified parents cover there kids eyes. I, on the other hand, will be using my money to forward my favorite cause: clown activism.
Monty Python’s Spamalot has showings at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. at the Warner Theater. Security will be extra tight, as there is an increased threat of guests wielding Holy Hand Grenades.
