Don your shamrock hats, you “Kiss Me I’m Irish” baby tees because it’s time to celebrate St. Patrick’s chasing of all the reptiles out of Ireland. Or something like that. One third of all American’s have Irish ancestry, and that’s just the one’s we know of. So, get with your Irish brethren, and any one else who care to join in. It’s St. Patrick’s day in Sacramento!

Head downtown to one of the most revered Irish pubs in Sacto. De Vere’s is all dark hardwood accents, class and atmosphere. A bookshelf full of imported Irish board games, pulled directly from the old country. Guinness, a Harp and the most gorgeous corned beef and cabbage around await. The Irish have never been so classy, and if beer isn’t festive enough, try some choice spirits at De Vere’s extensive whiskey library. Don’t forget the St. Patrick’s Day Pub Party!

Another classy joint in Sac, Mulvaney’s is anything but a pub, with fine dining, plenty of exquisite dinners, flamboyant salads and inspirational deserts. Corned beef and cabbage is always a hit, and you can wash it all down with an Irish coffee, because you night’s just beginning. Their signature porch will be open come March, and you might just catch some revelers. Do the Pat’s day with class this year, at Mulvaney’s B&L.
