Whether you’re Irish or not, St. Patrick’s Day seems to bring out the partier in all of us. Well, if you happen to be in Miami during that week, this year, may I suggest you partake of the festivities planned by Fado Irish Pub downtown?
That’s because Fado isn’t just holding a single day party. They’ve got a whole week of St. Patrick’s Day events planned.
Starting on Saturday, March 12th, Fado Irish Pub will hold a different event each night. Among these will be a Guinness Dinner (a 3-course dinner paired with the Irish Trinity of Beers – Guinness, Harp and Smithwicks), the Miami Guinness Pint Pouring Championships, an Irish quiz night with prizes, and a jam session with some of Southern Florida’s finest Irish musicians.
All of this leads up to the day itself, March 17. On this day, Fado will hold an outdoor St. Patrick’s Day Festival inside the open air plaza at Mary Brickell Village, where the pub is located.
St. Patrick’s Day will start with a Pints and Pancakes breakfast (that would be pints of Guinness). The day will progress with outdoor beer gardens and a slew of live Irish music, including a special set by U2 cover bands The Picklebacks and USA-U2.
During the festival, the bar will also be giving away a trip for two to the Guinness Brewery in Dublin, Ireland.
So skip the green beer in Miami and drink the good stuff in honor of St. Patrick all week long.
Fado Irish Pub is located inside Mary Brickell Village at 900 South Miami Blvd, in downtown Miami. For more information on any of the week’s events, call them at 786-924-0972.
