Head Down to Your Local Pub

Let's face it. St. Patrick's Day is an Irish holiday with a custom of partaking in the drink. Authenticity will be difficult in OKC as there aren't a lot of Irish pubs, but O'Connell's in Norman is a popular St. Patrick's Day spot as are McNellie's, Sean Cummings Pub and the Bricktown Brewery. Consider also checking out: Oh, and to be the wit of the group, take with you to the pub some St. Patrick's Day quotes and Irish drinking quotes.
