The United States fancies itself as a melting pot of culture and influences, but there's one day of the year when we're all Irish. Outside of Halloween, St. Patrick's Day may be adults' favorite holiday because it's basically a scheduled drinking day, and there are only two types of people in the world: those who love drinking green beer and liars!
Not surprisingly, there will be a ton of parties in Miami on Sunday, March 17, but don't depend on the luck of the Irish to decide where you'll spend this holiday because we've already compiled this list of places to celebrate St. Patrick's Day in Miami.
If you want to get social without the crowds that will enrapture Brickell on St. Patrick's Day, American Social just a few blocks away may be the spot for you. Of course, it's still American Social, so expect a sizable crowd here as well, but the experience will include hard-to-beat drink specials, especially for Miami. Check out their St. Patrick's Day weekend event if you want to know more about their specials!
