St. Patrick’s Day in Detroit
St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner, and CW50 wants to give you the scoop on what you can do to celebrate!
For anyone who hasn’t yet been (or even for those who have), Detroit’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade is a must-see! This year’s parade will be taking place March 13th, the Sunday before St. Patrick’s Day (and yes, THIS Sunday!), and it’s one event you won’t want to miss. This year marks the 53rd year of the parade, which stretches from Michigan Avenue at 6th Street, all the way down to 14th Street. The parade starts at 2pm and everyone is welcome to walk…so what are you waiting for?
Of course, restaurants and bars in most places will acknowledge the holiday, but if you really want to get into the spirit, wear green and sport your shamrocks at a local Irish pub! In Detroit, The Old Shillelagh is a classic Irish staple, in Ferndale, try Danny’s Irish Pub, and in Sterling Heights (or one of their other locations), try Dooley’s Irish Tavern!
…and what better way to show your Irish pride (and your love for “the D”), than with some Detroit St. Paddy’s swag? Try this green Corktown tee, or if you’re just seeking a classic look, try this Detroit Irish shirt from CafePress. Also, you can’t go wrong with college themed apparel like this “Kiss me, I’m a Wolverine” tee (and of course, you can find these for Spartans, too…).
Now that you’re dressed, fed, and entertained…Happy St. Patrick’s Day from CW50!
