Instead of observing St. Patrick's Day with the customary noiseless noisemakers and somber silent reading time, eschew tradition with a rowdy round of drinks. For $50, today's Groupon gets you a ticket to St. Patty Fest on Sunday, March 14, from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the glitzy Taglyan Complex in Hollywood. Your ticket includes all the food you can eat, all the beer and whiskey you can drink, live entertainment, and all the dancing you feel the world is ready to behold. Plus, all proceeds benefit the Children's Tumor Foundation and The Irish Center.
Without hedonistic feasts and repetitive tippling, humankind would never have invented fire, tall buildings, or customized omelette stations. St. Patty's Fest hefts in libations from more than 35 breweries, 20 wineries, and Irish whiskey distilleries to grease the gullet. Boar's Head sandwiches, PINK's hotdogs, and a cornicopia of Irish sausages, cheeses, and breads complete the delectable gustatory debauchery. Live entertainment includes karaoke backed by a live band, traditional Irish dancing performances by Claddagh Dance Company, bagpipe and drum wielding, music by Peter Daily & the Royal Band, and Drevon the Leprechaun.
Drinking and feasting to benefit a good cause makes waking up next to a hastily consumed shamrock shake less disgraceful. The Children's Tumor Foundation spends nearly 60% of its donations on research and medical development to end neurofibromatosis, a potentially debilitating nerve cancer. In addition to fostering medical advances, proceeds from St. Patty's Fest will also help The Irish Center maintain and encourage Irish cultural heritage in the great southern-California area.
