Nine Must-See St. Patrick's Weekend Parties in Metro Phoenix
The wealth of local bars and nightlife hangouts gearing up for Irish-inspired festivities this coming weekend might as well call it St. Patrick's Days, since the partying is happening over more than just a single 24 hour period.
It's a boon for both their bottom lines and liquor sales, as well as for anyone looking for an excuse to overindulge in intoxicants and sport flashing green plastic knickknacks, that kicks off on Friday, March 15, and keeps on going right up to last call on Sunday, March 17. Here's a list of nine St. Paddy's events where you can Erin go bragh, brah.
Benjamin Leatherman The party's quite hearty on a Sunday at El Hefe in Scottsdale, especially this Sunday.
Sundays are always a big deal at El Hefe, as hundreds fill the Saddlebag Trail spot to capacity for rowdy thrills -- despite the fact it's a school night. This weekend will be no exception when it brings a party for St. Hefe (a.k.a. "The Patron Saint of Day Drinking") on Sunday, March 17. A beer pong tournament starts at noon, when DJs like Circle, Diverse, and Thomas James begin their spin sessions, which will run until 10 p.m. Admission is free.
The sweet science will be showcased in grand fashion during the St. Patrick's festivities on Sunday, March 17, as bouts for the 10-Count Boxing championship will take place in O'Kelley's parking lot party starting at 1 p.m. Other distractions planned for the daylong affair include drinking games, bagpipers, giveaways, appearances by both the Bud Girls and Guinness Girls, psychic readings, and green beer (natch). Live music starts at 12:30 p.m. with performances by Rhythm Edition, The Dickensons, Rock Addix, and Krutch. Doors open at 6 a.m.
