Happy St. Patty's Day Weekend!

Three days of Irish fun here in Orlando, including Hootie and the Blowfish at Celebration, Shamrock 'N Roll at Pat O'Brien's CityWalk, and corned beef and cabbage at The Harp and Celt (that's the newest Irish pub downtown).

Wally's - that tacky fabulous bar with the smoke-stained, naked lady wallpaper - will be giving away a shot of Irish Whiskey to anyone who brings in a stuffed animal donation for the Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children. (Interesting trade). Wally's bartenders say they'll even switch out the whiskey for a green apple shot, but they will make fun of you for asking for it.

Wall Street Plaza claims to have "the biggest St. Patrick's Day party in Orlando", but more interestingly, there is an anti-event at Crooked Bayou called the "We Hate Wall Street St. Patrick's Day Party."
