Celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day in Downtown Alameda

 

Enjoy a day of revelry in Downtown Alameda in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day on Sunday, March 17. Put on some green attire, gather some friends and prepare to embark on a cultural journey. In addition to the abundant plates of traditional corned beef and cabbage, diners will find culinary treats such as corned beef sliders, Reuben sandwiches, pints of Guinness and all-day drink specials.

Here are a couple of recommendations for celebrating Irish-American culture in Downtown Alameda:

Taste the differences in Ireland’s national drink
Ask the bartender at American Oak, 2319 Santa Clara Ave., to put together a flight of Irish whiskey — they have one of the largest whiskey selections in the Bay Area.

For a great night of traditional entertainment
Join Brian Theriault & Burke T for a bit of Irish fiddle music at Speisekammer, 2424 Lincoln Ave., starting at 8 p.m. The event is free.
