St. Paddy's Day Events/Specials?

I know there are going to be a ton of St. Patrick's Day-related events going on at bars and restaurants in Boston...which ones are the best or most creative? Anything new for this year? Looking for boozing events but also for alternative stuff like whiskey tastings, music, etc.

      Whiskey lovers, listen up: Jamaica Plain’s Bella Luna will host a pop-up Whiskey Bar on March 13th, according to Grub Street Boston. The shindig will offer an array of whiskey (not moonshine, alas) from different regions around the world. To keep the booze from hitting you too hard, there will also be an Irish-themed cheeseboard, grilled oysters with pickled ginger, bourbon pecans, and short ribs. $30/person, purchase tickets at, Tue March 13, 7-9 p.m., Bella Luna is located in The Brewery Complex, 284 Amory St., Jamaica Plain,, 617-524-3740.

        so does anyone know who has the BEST IRISH COFFEE in Boston/Cambridge?

      2. Four Green Fields, on the corner of State and Wahington has a full schedule..starting with breakfast.

        They might also be a decent place to watch theMarch Madness.

        I have plans to do an early St Pats Day and try their corned beef tomorrow..see how it compares to Sam LaGrassa's.

        Will report back.
