Best Places to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Annapolis
Here, the Patch guide to St. Patrick's Day in Annapolis, from the best Guinness pours to the most delicious Irish dinners.
Although Annapolis already kicked off St. Patrick's Day festivities with a parade through downtown, there are still many opportunities to celebrate the March 17 holiday.
Maybe you aren't as Irish as St. Patrick himself (who was kidnapped and sent to Ireland as a slave, escaped in 409 and returned to Ireland in 432, believing he had been called upon to spread the word of God) but on March 17, everyone's a little Irish.
