Remix Your Weekend: St. Patrick’s Day parades, pubs, and more

Vox presents the revamped Remix Your Weekend, an end-of-week events listing for Georgetown and the greater District. 

FEATURED EVENT: St. Patrick’s Day Festivities in D.C.

Considering parties in Georgetown are likely to get shutdown this weekend thanks to sensitive neighbors and an even more sensitive administration, here are a few things to do around D.C. that SNAP can’t yell at you for.

Until such festivities begin, you can head over to the St. Patrick’s Day parade on Constitution Avenue at 12 p.m.

Since St. Paddy’s Day falls on a Sunday this year, the pubs will be packed even earlier than normal. Getting to pubs even earlier to avoid cover fees and long lines will definitely make your day less hectic.

“A number of pubs are expecting long lines to start forming between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., or, as the manager at O’Faolain’s put it, ‘right after mass,'” Ftriz Hahn wrote for the Washington Post.

Some of the pubs that Hahn recommends aren’t too far from Georgetown. 51st State, located in Foggy Bottom, offers $3 green beers, $4 baby Guinness shooters, and $5 pints of Guinness at specified times. At James Hoban’s in DuPont, the festivities begin at 8 a.m. with “Kegs and Eggs,” and live music with traditional Irish food begin at noon (no cover charge).
