? Deck yourself out in your favorite green running gear and head to Arlington on Saturday, March 12th for the Four Courts 4 Miler.

? Bar crawl your way through a sea of green beer on Saturday, March 12th in the DC Leprecrawl or on Saturday, March 19th in The Shamrock Crawl in Arlington.

? Make your way to RFK Stadium on Saturday, March 12th, from 3-11pm for the largest St. Patrick’s Day celebration in the area, Shamrock Fest.

? Starting on Sunday, March 13th, Ri Ra Georgetown will kick off their week long St. Patrick’s Day celebration with live Irish music and different specials each night. They will get the party started on the actual day itself at 10am with Kegs & Eggs and other special events all day long.
