Fado reminds you: can't drink all day if you don't start in the morning.
As St. Patrick's Day approaches, so might your craving for some Irish delicacies and ... adult beverages.  Penn Quarter has a wealth of resources for you:

  • The Dubliner.  Corned beef and cabbage will run you $14.95, but their entire menu is a tribute to Irish cuisine.  Sure to be a hot spot on St. Patrick's Day.
  • Like The Dubliner, Fado will be crazy on St. Patrick's Day.  Consider heading over early for their corned beef and cabbage ($13.95), or even their corned beef rolls ($7.95) -- but keep in mind that the $10 cover starts bright and early at 8am.
  • Againn is Gaelic for "with us," and they've got house-made corned beef on their menu also.  They're charging $10 at the door starting when they open at noon, or you can pony up more (think $100 for a 2 person booth; $200 for a 4 person booth, etc.) for seating.
  • Irish Channel Pub has corned beef & cabbage on the menu all year round, and for what it's worth, we think it's among the most underrated bar food in Penn Quarter.  Will be busy, but as of writing, no cover charge had been announced.
  • You may not think "Irish" when you think Capitol City Brewing Company, but on St. Patrick's Day they'll be serving up corned beef & cabbage, other traditional Irish fare and their signature Irish beers.  No cover, and beers are $4 all day long. 
  • Looking for something a bit more civil?  Poste has a plethora of options for St. Paddy's Day - corned beef and cabbage and Irish soda bread among them.
  • Just looking for a corned beef sammie?  Try Jack's - well-known for its corned beef.
