As the calendar turns from February to March, everyone is looking to move past the cold energy of winter and looks ahead to spring, warmer temperatures and good times. And in Spartanburg, that energy kicks off right around St. Patrick’s Day.
With Irish in its name, Delaney’s steps it up for St. Patrick’s, hosting their annual Shenanigans on the Square, a full-day event featuring live music, drink and food specials and special attractions for families.
Shenanigans on the Square will have an expanded capacity, and increased accessibility, thanks to the newly-pedestrianized Main Street-Morgan Square.
You’ll be able to find plenty of Guinness at Delaney’s, but they’ll also be serving up the kinds of traditional dishes you’d expect to find on St. Patrick’s day menus like bangers and mash (sausage and mashed potatoes), Shepherd’s pie and the ultimate St. Pat’s dish, corned beef and cabbage.
Best of all, Delaney’s serves up these Irish favorites all year round so you can get a taste of St. Patrick’s Day whenever you crave it.
The same day, FR8yard will host Yard Malarkey, its first major celebration of the year after kicking off its season March 1.
The event itself is a celebration of live music with bands taking FR8yard’s stage from noon all the way through until midnight. And of course there will be food and drink specials available throughout the day.
Keep the spirits high, and flowing, by stopping into any of your favorite drink spots across Spartanburg.
And for select tastes of some Irish flair, Landrum’s The Hare and The Hound has dishes to fill that St. Pat’s niche. The Guinness Beef Pie features Sirloin steak marinated in the popular Irish beer, slow-cooked with celery, carrots, mushrooms and onions before being topped with mashed potatoes and onion straws. There’s also a Fish and Chips basket with traditional malt vinegar available.
If you’re looking to spend the day in Woodruff, Tap 3 will have an official St. Patty’s Party on March 17 complete with all the drink specials you’d expect for the holiday.
Down Woodruff’s Main Street, Rottie’s 221 Biergarten will offer Irish drink and food specials including brisket, corned beef, and bangers and mash throughout the week. They’ll host live music on March 10, 12 and St. Pat’s itself, and feature drink specials, green beer and Celtic and Irish-themed events throughout the week.
