So if you’re like my friend Jason and you’re coming into Wichita (or you live here who knows) and you don’t know what to do on Thursday aka St. Paddy’s day then this is for you.
If you’re me you’ll probably be stopping by Central Standard Brewery to grab a bit of food from The Flying Stove and getting that Spiral Galaxy! (my favorite brew to come out of CSB to date) as it reemerges from its slumber.
If you want to get a bit more Irish with it you’ll probably be at the Blarney Stone Irish Pub’s grand opening. It starts nice and early at 11 am with the whole shebang, Bagpipes included. There will be a live DJ, an outdoor beer truck and your drink specials are:
$4 20oz Guiness, Harp, or Smithwicks Drafts
$4 Bushmills & Baileys Car Bombs
$4 Tullamore Dew, Teeling, Bushmills Drinks
$3 Guinness Nitro IPA Cans
$3 Guinness Blonde Cans
$3.00 16 oz. Green Bud Light Bottles
$2.75 16 oz. Green Bud Light/Coors Light Draft
The River City Brewery will be in full swing for St. Paddy’s and will be the place to stop by if you want Irish Car Bombs (I might have to go get one!) just THREE dollars! !!!! !! What! They have other specials for the more faint of heart including $2 Emerald City Stout and $4 Jameson.
If a digital St. Patrick’s day brawl is what you’re after then head over to Headshots starting at 8 pm. Wear green to win door prizes play some games and drink a special or two, and they consist of:
$3 Green Pints!
$3 Irish Beers!
Boulevard Irish Ale
Killian’s Irish Red
& NEW Walnut River WARBEARD Irish Red!
$3 Bushmills & Jameson Irish Whiskey
$5 Drop Shots
The Hopping Gnome might be your best shot at seeing a real Leprichan as he might be looking to hide out with his Gnome buddy’s but who knows. I do Knows they will be hosting the Noble House Hawaiian Plate Lunch so you won’t go home hungry! Be sure to check out the Irish Red while you’re there!
If you’re Deadpool then you’re going to be down south at Bourbon Street Sports bar & Grill for their Thursday $6.99 Cheese smothered Chimichunga and $2.00 wells specials.
If you wanna dance and you’re in Old Town you’ll be at Rock Island Live checking out Mushroom Thump; Manish Law, Murdick, Willy and C Genius come together to bring you a new band with both Hip Hop and Rock infusions in their soul. The Island’s specials are $5 Bushmills, $5 Carbombs, and the always elusive $5 Bacardi Leprechaun Shots.
Well I hope this puts some direction in your life! And as always St. Paddy’s safely and responsibly call a cab or an uber if you need!
EDIT: Jay pointed out my unintentional omission of the Shamrock, as they obviously know how to do St. Paddy’s bagpipes and all, they have a corned beef and cabbage dinner for $10. They also kick off the festivities the night before with a 11:59 countdown on Wednesday.
I also want to add something for those of us that might want some laughs. A St. Patrick’s Day Comedy show is being hosted at Barleycorn’s. It’s being hosted by the hilarious Meghan Welch, and features Jessica Kay, Daniel Pewewardy, and Blake Hamilton.
