St. Patrick’s Day activities

The luck of the Irish be with ye ” and a celebratory spirit in the air as St. Patrick’s Day brings out the spirit of the Emerald Isle in our fair valley.

If you’re looking to get out and enjoy a bit of traditional Irish fare or preparing to head to your favorite pub and tilt a pint or two of green beer, here’s some suggestions.

Do remember that Colorado’s law enforcement community continues its especially vigilant St. Paddy’s Day drunk driving monitoring (339 DUI arrests have been made across the state since Friday); take advantage of local taxis, RFTA, Ride Glenwood Springs or make other alternative arrangements and you’ll make the holiday safer for everyone.
