Your Guide To A Classy St. Patrick’s Day — & An Outfit To Match

If the last thing you want to do tomorrow is guzzle Guinness for breakfast while wearing head-to-toe green, we hear you. We love the Emerald Isle and all, but taking a Leprechaun Lap isn’t exactly how we want to celebrate. But as it turns out, we’re in luck: There's no shortage of laid-back spots in D.C. to enjoy an Irish coffee or a coupla pints on Saturday.
We did all the work for you, choosing the best bars and a shamrock-chic outfit that doesn’t scream “Kiss Me, I'm Irish” — but trust, us everyone will want to. So, now you can sleep in on Saturday and arrive just in time for a proper Irish breakfast. We won’t judge if you choose to wash it down with a good strong ale.
