Get Your Green On This St. Patrick’s Day Weekend at the Sports Bar Ann Arbor Westside!

Are you planning your Saint Patrick’s Day celebration? 

Do you and your friends want to celebrate at a fun, festive sports bar and grill in Ann Arbor?

Look no further than The Sports Bar Ann Arbor – Westside.  Starting Friday through St. Patrick’s Day, you’ll find green beer and great drink specials on Guinness, Jameson’s and Dublin Ice Tea.   We’ll also be serving up delicious corned beef and cabbage!

St. Patrick's Day Specials!

A few fun facts about St. Patrick’s Day: 
The traditional Irish corned beef and cabbage holiday meal did not originate in Ireland.  It actually became popular in the 19th century by impoverished Irish immigrants living on the Lower East Side of New York City.  At the time, corned beef from Kosher butchers was cheaper than Irish bacon. 

The ancient Celts considered the shamrock to be a sacred symbol of spring.  When England ruled Ireland in the 18th century, they forbade the Celtic/Irish language to be spoken and outlawed Catholicism.  Irish nationalists adopted the shamrock as a symbol of their heritage.  This is also why the color green is worn to celebrate being Irish. 

Leprechauns were not associated with St. Patrick’s Day until after 1959 when Walt Disney premiered the movie Darby O’Gill and the Little People.  According to Celtic folklore, Leprechauns were small fellows who were usually cranky tricksters.  It took Disney’s version of friendly, green-wearing, gold-sharing, small people that tied Leprechauns to St. Patrick’s Day. 

Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day all weekend at The Sports Bar Ann Arbor – Westside.  We’ll have everything you need including corned beef and cabbage, green beer, drink specials, and more. 

Our wide variety of appetizers, entrees, drinks, and 22 screens playing sports all the time, also make us an excellent choice for every-day meals at a sports bar and grill in Ann Arbor.

You’ll have more fun than you can shake a shillelagh at!
