St. Patrick’s Day has been a week-long event for me. Saturday was the parade in downtown Colorado Springs, last night was the Jack Quinn’s run with a St. Patrick’s Day theme and today is the actual day itself!
I don’t think too many places are having specials- it’s one of the busiest nights of the year, after all. But here are three that will have Irish food and live Irish music.
McCabes Tavern: 520 South Tejon Street, (719) 633-3300
All Day Party. The Tim Finnegan band starts at noon. Corn Beef and Cabbage, Bangers and Mash, Shepherd’s Pie and other Irish fare will be available.
