Lucky Dill St. Patrick’s Day Extravaganza

March 13 - 18

If traffic isn’t moving much in Palm Harbor or St. Pete around St. Patrick’s Day, you can probably blame it on the Lucky Dill. Between the St. Patrick’s Day festivities and the celebration of the restaurant’s 25th anniversary, there’s a lot going on. Start with 10,000 pounds of corned beef, then add in Leprechauns, bagpipes, green beer, and so much more. More info.

In Clearwater for the holiday? Head over to O’Keefe’s for tons of corned beef and cabbage, green beer, Shepherd's pie, Irish drinks, bagpipers, face painting, dancers, a dueling piano show and entertainment by DJ Doug Shaw. More info.
