San Diego Saint Patrick's Day Celebrations

Posted: May. 3rd, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

There are a few holidays that are embraced and celebrated thoroughly in San Diego, and St. Patrick's Day is a prime example of how the city loves a good reason to drink. San Diego already has a killer downtown bar and club scene, and adding a reasonably legitimate reason to drink brings out all sorts of fun events and people. Nevertheless, some people want a more subdued Irish holiday experience and can participate in one of the events linked to below.

U-T San Diego has put together a list of St. Patrick’s Day events scheduled for this weekend, but if packing pubs in search of green beer and pickled foodstuffs isn’t your idea of St. Patrick's Day fun, you might enjoy one of these offbeat observances that celebrate San Diego as well as Ireland:

1. Read Aloud at D.G. Wills

Wild for Wilde? Got a jones for Joyce? Yearning for Yeats? Independent bookseller D.G. Wills is hosting its annual St. Patrick’s Day Open Reading of Irish Poetry and Prose at 7 pm. on March 17.
