Irish or not, the people of Los Angeles are getting excited for St. Patrick's Day this weekend and it's going to be pretty wild at most alcohol-serving establishments in honor of the holiday. After all, the annual celebration is mostly about pounding beer as long as you can stand upright, but did you know there are some places in this city where it's St. Patty's Day year-round? Although this is also true of USC's Kappa Sig house, we're actually talking about the many Irish pubs, both new and old, scattered across town where they don't need a holiday to serve an endless supply of Guinness and Bushmills whiskey. So, in honor of St. Patrick, here are eight of L.A.'s best Irish pubs and restaurants to check out and try your luck any day of the year. [Photo via @thrillski]
