Raise a glass this St. Patrick's Day!

According to Ancestry.com, I'm completely devoid of any Irish blood, I don't care for the University of Notre Dame, I don't particularly crave corned beef and cabbage, I absolutely despise mixing Baileys, Jameson, and Guinness, and yet ... St. Patrick's Day, in all of its cheesiness (and American-ness), still excites me, like it's adult Christmas. Perhaps it's because we're halfway through the snowiest month and spring is on the other side, or maybe it's because it's an excuse to go 'do it big' with whoever you want – no family, no gifts, no drama.

Either way, there's something in the air, and if you're in Parker you can find it at these places: 

20 Mile Tap House 

*Actual 20 Mile Chicken Sandwich

People often refer to 20 Mile Tap House as "the Cheers of Parker," and what better place to spend St. Patricks Day? On top of that, they probably have the best bar food in all of Parker and they have a back patio with a mountain view. What more do you want?

Celtic House Pub

If you're the type who likes to celebrate St. Patrick's Dy at an "Irish" pub, then you don't have to go far. I think the name speaks for itself on this one. 

The Tailgate Tavern & Grill 

Since 2002, the Tailgate has been a popular go-to for sports, food, and live tunes. And on St. Patricks Day, you can bet it's going to be a party! 

Hilltop Tap House 

Solid food and comfortable neighborhood sports bar atmosphere make the Hilltop Tap House an excellent choice for those looking for a place to kick back relax. 

Takoda Tavern

Live music, solid food, and an upscale sports-bar theme seem to be the secret sauce at the Takoda. Try it, and let us know how it is!
