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.?). In fact, we've even covered a bunch of local spots around town where Angelenos are welcome to celebrate like it's March 17th any day of the year. But with Sunday being the official day designated for all to embrace their inner Irishman, there are a myriad of green beer and Jameson-fueled events beginning as early as this evening to get your liver warmed up and all the way through to the sacred holiday on Sunday. Grab a hold of your Guinness and shillelagh, as we bring you the best throwdowns, pub crawls and street festivals in our 2013 St. Patrick's Day Weekend Party Guide. [Photos via, via, via,]
