Guide to St. Patrick’s Day in Albuquerque


Corned beef and cabbage, dodging pinches by wearing green, and looking for leprechauns. That’s how some of us celebrate one of the most fun holidays of the year, St. Patrick’s Day. Maybe you like green beer and shaking your shamrocks or finding some great Irish food. Whatever it is that you do to celebrate this holiday, we have activities and grub for this St. Patrick’s Day in the Albuquerque Area. And of course, we wish you all the good luck in the world.
