Los Angeles and Hollywood St. Patrick’s Day Festivities

Time is flying by with Valentines Day 2016 just behind us.  What’s next?  Hollywood St. Patrick’s Day festivities.  Following are some of the favorite activities for Thursday, March 17th, 2016:

Enjoy the traditional corned beef and cabbage with all the extras at Magee’s Kitchen located in The Original Farmers Market Los Angeles:

THE original Market restaurant– when farmers first parked trucks at Farmers Market, Blanche Magee thought they might like to have lunch, so she filled a picnic hamper and started feeding them. Today, folks still line up for outstanding roast or corned beef, tempting turkey and marvelous ham platters. Magee’s horseradish is homemade and fantastic, too, and the cole slaw is equally good.

From Magee’s one can walk to both Molly Malone’s or Tom Bergin’s in the Fairfax District.

If there’s ever a day to celebrate drinking, it’s St. Patrick’s Day. This year, the holiday falls on a Thursday, which means that most of the heavy drinking will happen during the weekend, Friday through Sunday. Expect plenty of green beer, corned beef and cabbage, live music, and raucous daytime intoxication. There are some classier establishments something beyond full-on debauchery, but expect more than a day’s share of Jameson, Bushmills, Guinness, O’Hara’s Stout, and more on this year’s guide to St. Patrick’s Day Specials in Los Angeles.

Experience a Los Angeles landmark, which for over 40 years has brought the city of Los Angeles some of the best local and Irish music within an authentic Irish pub environment.

Molly Malone’s has been owned and operated by the same Irish family for 43 years. Walking in, you’d think a Dublin Pub had been miraculously transported to Los Angeles. This local institution has been featured in such movies as Leaving Las Vegas, Patriot Games, and Life Without Dick, and has a long standing tradition of showcasing the finest musical talent in the Los Angeles area.
The walls of the pub are covered by over 70 paintings by noted Irish portrait painter Neil Boyle. These portraits depict both notable Irish figures and longtime Molly Malone’s patrons and staff.

Rock and Reilly's Irish Pub LA

Rock and Reilly’s Irish Pub L.A.

A little further up the street on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood (short taxi or UBER ride) find the always happening Rock & Reilly’s Irish Pub.  More times than not, expect a street or block party with beer flowing and shots shooting.

Of course, no drinking and driving.  It’s a busy, busy day for the L.A.P.D, the Weho Sheriffs, and The Beverly Hills Police Department and they’ll be out in force.
