St. Patrick’s Day Weekend Events Guide

Lots of great events going on in and around GC this weekend such as all-day bashes, live entertainment and food specials. Check them out below in the St. Patrick’s Day weekend events guide. At 57 degrees on Saturday, be sure to do something outside (even if it’s just walking from one bar or restaurant to another)! 

Stop at Doc O’Grady’s in Garden City South for live music at 9pm on Friday. If you (and your waistband) are up for it, they’ll be serving traditional Irish breakfast at noon on Sat, Sun & Mon. Think bacon… ham… sausage… etc. On the big day~ St Patrick’s Day~ don’t miss the Irish sing-a-long at 3pm and live Irish band from 6-9pm.  
BK Sweeney’s Uptown Grille on Franklin Ave is bringing you some fun events for St Patrick’s Day this weekend. Fueled by corned beef and cabbage, you may want a break from Irish music by Saturday night. If so, come over for some live classic rock (while enjoying a Guinness, Harp or Smithwick’s) by Mike Tessler at 10pm. On Monday they’ll have beer specials all day/night, bag pipers, some heavy green decor and employees decked out in their finest Irish costumes!  Try a Sweeney’s “Famous” Irish coffee which I’ve heard is quite tasty.  


Head over to Jack Walsh’s Irish Pub on Saturday at 3pm for their pre-St Patrick’s Day bash. They’re serving up corned beef and cabbage, shepard pie, bagpipers and dancers. The St Patrick’s Day feast on Monday begins at 4pm. 108 Covert Ave in Stewart Manor.  

Leo’s will be in the spirit with live music on Monday, St. Patrick’s Day, starting at 5:30pm.
On Sunday from 11am-6pm come out to Hofstra’s Annual Irish Experience Festival. Celebrate with live music, Irish dancing, authentic Irish food and lots of vendors. Mack Sports Complex. 


Don’t feel much like going out? You can still celebrate by stopping at Town Meat Market on 7th Street to pick up a delicious cooked corned beef dinner- complete with cabbage, potatoes and carrots. Now that’s Irish!   

If you’re ready for a little non-Irish entertainment, check out the Ruth Harley Gallery at Adelphi University for the “Outdoor Sculpture Biennial” featuring 10 sculptors. Now through May 31. Mondays-Fridays, 11-7; Saturdays & Sundays, 11-5.
