Tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day, and hopefully you’re ready to bring out the Irish in you by wearing your favorite green shirt and drinking until your body turns green–figuratively of course.
If you’re near the Bay Area, I’m sure you’ve heard of 161st St. Patrick’s Day Parade in San Francisco, but why not try something different this year? All over the Bay, restaurants and pubs are celebrating this Irish holiday with special promotions and delicious food. Here are some great places to check out:
The famous Murphy Avenue in Sunnyvale is sure to kick off the holiday with it’s Irish food and beer. This short Irish adventure will be filled with Irish foods such as corned beef and hash, Irish beer and whiskey, music, and Irish dancers.

Although the Walnut Creek Yacht Club doesn’t sound like an Irish restaurant, Irish food will be on their menu this Thursday. Their famous Irish soda bread and four leaf clover soup sounds like food straight from Ireland.
