Regardless of how many times you’ve already celebrated St. Patrick’s Day, this weekend marks the actual day of corned beef, green beer, and debauchery. In true Baltimore fashion, this town has no shortage of events to pay homage to St. Patrick’s Day. Get dolled up in green and pretend you’re Irish, Canton, cause it’s the weekend!
Kick off your weekend by heading to Canton’s signature St. Patrick’s Day event, Meet in the Street, hosted by Claddagh Pub, a signature Irish bar. The bar will take over the square on Friday, March 17 and Saturday, March 18 with live music, a heated tent, food, and of course, plenty of beverages.
If you’re looking for a slightly-less-crowded square location to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, head to El Bufalo Tequila Bar & Kitchen on Saturday, March 18. They’ll have a tent up too, but will also be donating cover charges to the Ulman Cancer Center for Young Adults. There will also be raffles, great music, televisions for March Madness, amazing food, an ice luge, and plenty of beer.
By now you’ve probably figured out that we are basically planning out your weekend-long bar crawl for you. The next stop is a great place to fuel up on oysters and (more) beer. For St. Patrick’s Day (Friday, March 17) oysters are $1 and Maryland Craft Brews are $2.50. There will also be live music and an official blessing of the Taps with Father Lou. On Saturday, Boathouse is open for brunch, and then hosts the Maryland beer and oyster festival from 1 to 4 p.m.
Don’t end your weekend without tipping your funny, green top hat to Knotty Pine’s St. Patrick’s Day celebration from Friday, March 17 to Sunday, March 19. Alice will be serving her famous Irish cuisine of Corned Beef, Potatoes, Cabbage, Colcannon, Carrots, Cole Slaw and Potato Leak Soup. The kitchen will be open each day from noon to 9:30 p.m. Sip on drink specials as well: Guinness, Jameson, Car Bombs, and Green Crushes.
