St Patty's Day BBQ & Beer - Flatiron Bar & Shamrock Club

Forget green beer. Don't punish yourself this St Patty's Day. Come out for a good bbq, real beer and great Irish music. 

Dinner starts at a unique downtown space that was built 100 years ago by Irish businessman Myrt Higgins. His four story wedge shape building featured a bar, grocery store and upstairs apartments. Myrt was a well known and beloved member of the Irish community. He was an active parishioner of nearby St Patrick's Catholic Church and always ready with a story or a joke. After he died the St Patrick's Day Parade marched past his building and all the men removed thier hats in respect to this colorful individual. 

Today the ground floor of the building is the home of Flatiron Bar & Diner. Known for thier Cajun, Creole, barbecue, and low country cuisine offering a unique atmosphere and delicious food. Happy Happy is from 4-7pm with drink specials and $1 off small plate appetizers. Get a couple to share.

Next its off to a real St Patty's Day party at the Columbus Shamrock Club. This Irish social club is located south of downtown at 60 West Castle Street and features two full bars (including the downstairs Pub with darts and music) and a smaller bar in the main hall that will have music all evening long with local bands The Changelings @ 5:30pm and the Drowsy Lads @ 7:30pm. An annual tradition at 11pm is the Shamrock Club's Pipes and Drums Corps closing out the festivities. One of my favorite evenings of the year. 

Admission to the Club is $5 cover charge. Bring cash. 

The Drowsy Lads - Lively Traditional Irish Music

The Drowsy Lads exploded onto the Irish music scene in Ohio in 2006 and have become favorites at pubs, clubs, and festivals. Their intricate, yet molten-lava approach to Traditional Irish music has won over many fans. http://www.thedrowsylads.com
