St. Patty's Day is nigh, and we here in Los Angeles aren't going to let cities with large Irish communities have all the fun (hear that, Boston, Philly, Dublin, etc.?). But with Monday being the official day designated for all to embrace their inner Irishman, there are a myriad of green beer and Jameson-fueled events beginning Saturday to get your liver warmed up and all the way through to the sacred holiday. So grab a hold of your Guinness and shillelagh, as we bring you the best throw downs, pub crawls and street festivals in our St. Patrick's Day 2014 Party Guide.
