It’s been nearly 1,500 years since St. Patrick brought Christianity to Ireland and drove every snake into the sea. Boy, time flies, doesn’t it? Luckily, we Americans are doing plenty to keep the lad’s good name alive, namely by drinking copious amounts of alcohol. St. Patrick’s Day celebrations pop up everywhere, but Southern Brewing Co. went all out this time around, with a family-friendly mini music festival. The St. Patrick’s Day Bash will feature performances from pop-punk cover band That’s Rad!, The Donner Party (no doubt named after the ill-fated pioneering expedition of the same name) playing a Pogues cover set and a special dance performance by the Carpenter Academy of Irish Dance.
