​This Saturday, the traditional Sláintes and Céad Míle Fáiltes will likely fall on deaf and buzzing ears, as your bar-hopping friends and fellow patrons will be more focused on the next round of car bombs and Irish flag shots. (Good luck with that crème de menthe...)

Yes, it's St. Patrick's Day, and while the parades and kid-friendly events fill parks around the Valley (check out our St. Patrick's Day Guide for the full rundown), we know you'll be making a beeline to the first place you can get a wristband. 

Here are five must-see parties around town. Green clothing not required.

5. Rosie McCaffrey's 
Rosie's been a traditional St. Patrick's Day favorite for years, and this Saturday, the pub will once again play host to hundreds of revelers looking for a good mix of cultural tradition and good 'ol American drinking. Doors open at 11 a.m. to the tune of food and drink specials, Irish dancing, bagpipers, happy hour from 4 to 7 p.m..

4. Skeptical Chymist
Head to North Scottsdale for a block's worth of beer gardens, Irish eats, and live music. Bands include Jim Gregory, The Sea Merchants, The Scones, and the Brazenheads. Doors open at 8 a.m. for Irish Breakfast (black pudding and all). Cover is free before noon, $5 until 3 p.m., and $10 until close.

It's interesting that in Ireland, St. Patrick's Day is a patron saint's feast day, a religious observance,. while in the U.S., it's an excuse for overindulgence.
