Our area never seems to limit itself to one day when it comes to celebrating St. Patrick’s Day.
Considering that St. Patrick’s Day is always on March 17, people around here would rather not depend on the whims of the calendar.
Here’s a look at the big events going on:
Celtic Tenors, Maltz Jupiter Theatre, Jupiter: The sounds of Irish music the way it’s meant to be heard will ring from the rafters at the Maltz on March 16 and 17. Matthew Gilsenan, James Nelson and Daryl Simpson make up the Celtic Tenors, who are Ireland’s most successful classical crossover artists.
TooJay’s World Class Corned Beef Eating Championship: Start your St. Patrick’s Day off with an example of extreme gluttony, as 2010 champ Joey “Jaws” Chestnut and others compete to polish off corned beef sandwiches for a lot of cash in Palm Beach Gardens.
Roxy’s Annual St. Patrick’s Day Bash: A strange combination of ‘80s music and drinking games await at one of the three big parties on Clematis on March 17. Roxy’s will have The Spazmatics, an ‘80s tribute band that has been getting good reviews for their Sunday shows at the pub, and a Beer Pong tournament. In addition, the band Fourth Dimension will be entertaining later in the evening in their Saloon nightclub.
O’Shea’s Irish Pub St. Patrick’s Day Block Party: This is a huge bash on Clematis – the one where the entire 500 block is shut down. O’Shea’s crew will be bringing in music and dancers from County Cork, Ireland, and will have a beer tent, face-painters, an animal show and corned beef and plenty of Guinness.
Feelgood’s St. Patrick’s Day Bash: Prefer your party with a more rock edge? Head east on Clematis to Feelgood’s for a night of fun including free drinks from 8-10 p.m.
Art After Dark’s St. Patrick’s Day Celebration: The Norton gets into the Irish spirit with their popular Art After Dark program. There’ll be Irish music and dancing, along with the usual food, drink and programs.
Slainte’s Five-band bash: Boynton Beach’s Slainte Irish Pub will be doing it up on the 17th as well, promising five bands that night.
St. Patrick’s Day Dinner Dance: Lake Park’s Dance Tonight will be holding a dinner dance, with Irish food, beer and great music. It’s only $35, but seating’s limited.
