7 March 2012 No Comment

Well, it is that time of year again to start making your plans for the beer drinkers partying holiday that is Saint Patrick’s Day.  This year, we at The J. Clyde will be participating in Shamrockin’ in Five Points South, a six day celebration where Five Points area retailers, restaurants and bars rock in St. Patty’s Day with amazing specials and events.

What this means for our loyal friends and patrons: you will get a week full of drink specials that will wrap up on Saint Patrick’s Day with Brews & Stews, a day of Irish-themed culinary fare, fine beers, and entertainment that is sure to make you feel you are throwing down on the Emerald Isle itself.

Below you will find our full line up of events and specials for St. Patrick’s week.  We hope to see you at the pub on one or all of these days as you avoid your Lenten obligations in observance of one of the greatest holidays known to man! Sláinte!
