St. Patty’s Day is a hallowed occasion on Greenville Avenue. It’s a day when Dallasites from all over the city come together to celebrate, by my best judgement, an alcoholic leprechaun in a green suit with a legendary parade, live music, and green beer. Lots and lots of green beer. On March 14, Lower Greenville turns into a real-life Emerald City, but with more booze and fewer creepy holographic floating heads (and probably an equivalent amount of dudes in green top hats). In the words of [probably] Soulja Boy, “all green everything.”
The party at Sundown starts at 1:30 with Reggae on the Rooftop. The David Willingham Project, Sing Kumba & the Mystic Heights, and the DF Dub Allstars will be providing the soundtrack for your celebratory rooftop day-drinking, parade-watching, and shamrock shaking. Outdoors not your thing? You’re in luck: The Hilltop Crawlers take Sundown’s indoor stage at 2:00 pm followed by The Yaga Yaga’s so you can do your celebrating out of the elements.
Assuming you hold it together all afternoon and aren’t passed out in a plate of cheese fries next door at Snuffer’s, come wind it down with Cleveland singer-songwriter Joshua Radin at Granada (doors at 7:00pm). If you didn’t get your fix of green-dyed alcohol, don’t worry: we’ll have it.
Come celebrate this legendary holiday with us at Granada and Sundown this Saturday, and get your tickets for Joshua Radin here!
