St. Patrick’s Day is a great excuse to break the fast and have a mid-Lenten party. With the holiday falling on a Thursday this year, many local establishments are sandwiching the official date with two weekends of Irish debauchery. Manci’s Antique Club’s celebration on the Saturday before will give leprechauns on both sides of the bay a chance to turn green with envy.

Celtic music is known for being both bright and raucous. Over the past decade many bands have incorporated rock influences into traditional Celtic style. Pensacola’s Drunker Shade of Green is one, with upbeat acoustic instrumentation.

Journey 2 Mars traverses the Gulf Coast with a musical party that knows no boundaries. This group will provide music that crosses the genres.
