St. Patrick’s Day offers people plenty of chances to get out and have a good time every year. With green beer, traditional Irish food and some great whiskey, there is always a party going on. St. Louis has a lot of options when it comes to celebrating the holiday this year. However, the live music options are limited outside of some local bands.
