Craig businesses offer plentiful St. Paddy’s specials
Faith and begorrah! It’s that time of year again, when shillelaghs and shamrocks are among the décor in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day.
You don’t have to live in the Emerald Isle or have the luck of a leprechaun to commemorate March 17. As good fortune would have it, the holiday falls on a Saturday this year.
Whether you prefer to sip, chug, gulp or quaff in a bar, pub, tavern or watering hole, mix and match those however you want by frequenting any of the following locations this weekend, all while wearing green.
We’ll leave the shade up to you, whether you prefer forest, olive, or a nice lime.
