OKC venues feel the luck o' the Irish a little early

The real St. Patrick's Day may not be until next Thursday, but that's not stopping Oklahoma City bars from rolling out the green carpet this weekend.

TapWerks is hosting its annual St. Patrick's Day Block Party from 11 a.m. to midnight Saturday. They'll feature draft beer, a liquor bar, live music and at least a couple food trucks in the parking lot next to the pub.

Just down the street in Bricktown, the Bricktown Brewery is also celebrating on Saturday. They'll be open 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. with live music, green beer (Doh!), Irish food, bagpipes (not Irish) and free giveaways.

(I'm just giving BTB a hard time -- the bagpipes are cool. The green beer? We need to talk about that...)

Over in Midtown, McNellie's-OKC is waiting until March 17 to commemorate the occasion, when the establishment will celebrate its 13th St. Patrick's Day by opening at 10 a.m. and then kicking off a street party at noon. The day will feature beer, food, live music and a live DJ all day.

I have the understanding that a good time will be had by all.

Pints and Pins

-Oak & Ore is hosting an Against the Grain Brewery pint night on Wednesday, featuring Rico Sauvin (double IPA), Kentucky Ryed Chiquen (rye beer aged in whiskey barrels), The Brown Note (American brown ale), and 35K (milk stout). Glassware is a branded whiskey tumbler.

-The Patriarch recently added the following beers to the tap lineup: Bitter Sisters Busy Body Blonde, Great Divide Old Ruffian, Anthem Golden One, Boulevard/Cigar City Collaboration No. 5 Tropical Pale Ale, Big Sky IPA and Founders 2015 Backwoods Bastard.

-I'm pretty sure this had been announced some time ago, but did you know Republic will open a new branch in the Chisholm Creek development at Memorial and Western? And, it was just announced that a second location for Sidecar Barley & Wine Bar (the first is in Automobile Alley) will also open up at Chisholm Creek. That's music to the ears of us northsiders.

  1. Interesting post!! One of my friends also loves kite boarding. Last month, he arranged his kite boarding themed birthday party at one of local party bar and venues. It was truly enjoyable for me and everyone had a blast there.
