Minneapolis St Patricks Day Spots 2014

(Bagpipes playing in the background)

Do you hear that? That's the majestic mating call of the elusive St. Patrick's Day. Very rare, it only shows itself once a year. But, you can tell from the distinct green plumage and mass "2 for 1" discounts that it truly has made an appearance.

It's that time of the year again. The time where we all claim, "Of COURSE I'm Irish. About...2%, at least. On my mom's side. Or something." There's lots to do and a slew of places to go, so we've put together the ultimate list of best places for St Patricks Day in Minneapolis for 2014.

(Bagpiping intensifies)

Let the sultry sounds of the whimsical bagpipe guide you to a (potentially five day) 2014 St. Patrick's Day extravaganza in Minneapolis.

And remember. Don't drink and drive! MetroTransit offers free rides from 6pm to end of night. Or enjoy a weekend in downtown Minneapolis at any of our hotels.
