Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Santa Cruz!
St. Patrick’s Day in Santa Cruz County means one thing – a (long time coming) celebration with family and friends, while relaxing beachside and eating delicious food that may or may not be green! If you are anything like us we are last minute planners, so I thought I would compile a list of restaurants around the county that are providing some charming festivities that you and your family can enjoy! St. Patrick’s Day never tasted so good.
Carmona’s BBQ – Come celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with all-day corned beef and cabbage, Reuben sandwiches, green hot wings and green-hued beer. Sit back and relax in their spacious dining area while basketball shows on the big screen televisions overhead. They also may or may not have fabulous hot BBQ and the best french fries in Watsonville.
Britannia Arms – Located in Capitola Village, this beach-side restaurant and bar will serve traditional Irish favorites, including Irish BLT, corned beef and Swiss on rye, Reuben sandwiches and Irish stew. Fresh from Belfast, DJ Donagh McKeown of the Irish Voices will get the dance party started at 4 p.m. Later in the evening at 7 p.m., Dublin-based, Singer-Songwriter Tony McMahon will lead a sing-a-long.
Hindquarter Bar & Grille – Hindquarter will be serving up their famous corned beef and cabbage all day long. Stop in for a pint and stay for the sirloins, t-bones, prime rib and juicy baby back ribs.
Silver Mountain Vineyards – Green-colored beer not your thing? Silver Mountain Vineyards has got you covered. Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day on Saturday, March 19, in style tasting world-class wine made from grapes grown in the Santa Cruz Mountains while listening to live Celtic music by The Crooked Road Ceili Band.
