If the Parade Shall Be Your Epicenter...
Midtown revelers may have found their pot of gold: a corner of Fifth Avenue where it’s possible to drink Powers and, better still, eat whiskey—by ordering Gaelic steak in a creamy Irish-whiskey peppercorn sauce.
Yes, it’s a couple avenues away from the parade, and, sure, the Times Square pubs will be in a frenzy, but at least corned beef and cabbage is on the menu, along with other alcohol-sponging staples like bangers and mash.
Celtic Women at Radio City
These Gaelic damsels sing divinity-drenched, Charlotte Church–esque octaves while twirling and stepping across the stage. Simple folk songs are whipped into forceful, stirring symphonies.
Ladies & Gents
Looking for a loo after the parade? Paul Walker’s site-specific noir thriller, Ladies & Gents, over from Dublin, opens on St. Patrick’s Day — literally inside the Bethesda Fountain public restrooms in Central Park.
