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.
The celebration will be in full effect in Downtown Spartanburg as Delaney’s Irish Pub rings in the day with the luck of the Irish on March 18, 2023.
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.
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.
And just up Main Street, FR8yard’s annual day of music and St. Patrick’s Day celebration, Yard Malarkey, will kick off their seventh season in Downtown Spartanburg.
Keep the spirits high, and flowing, by stopping into any of your favorite drink spots across Spartanburg.
RJ Rockers, Ciclops Cyderi & Brewery, FR8yard, Main Street Pub and Bond Street Wines will all be open and serving both on St. Patrick’s Day proper (March 17) and during the following weekend. Head here to check out more about Spartanburg’s craft beer scene.
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.
