You won’t be saying “Irish I was drunk” this St. Patty’s Day in Boston.

Get drunk. Talk loud. Eat potatoes. Get into a bar fight … Whatever it may be, make it one hell of a day, a night … or, as most Bostonian’s do, an entire weekend!  And there’s no shortage of things to do in and around Boston no matter what speed you’re going at it this weekend. These are the events you aren’t going to want to miss. Looking for something authentic?
