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.
[Photos via, via] Apparently March is the new July for L.A. Mother Nature is generously granting us another spell of 85+ degree days just in time for the weekend. We suggest you soak it up by heading for the coast and have you covered with this guide to L.A.'s 16 best places to eat and drink by the beach. Whether you choose to actually step foot on the sand or prefer to admire it from afar, just get close enough to the gloriously picturesque stretch of SoCal beach to appreciate it over food and drinks, and don't forget to Instagram it for all your friends on the east coast.
