Your Lucky Day

St. Paddy brings the party when you need it most.

2010 Houston Press St. Patrick's Day Guide

This year, St. Paddy's Day falls on a Wednesday — three days after the start of Daylight Saving Time. Between the lost hour and the midweek slump, it couldn't hurt to visit your favorite restaurants and bars for some shepherd's pie and a couple of green beers. — Abby Downing-Beaver
