Doors open on St. Patrick’s Day at 7:30am complete with proper pints, themed sweatbands and festive T-Shirts for ‘Paddython’ participants.

Bringing new meaning to Super Saturday, Fadó will also feature live 6 Nations Rugby with Ireland taking on England in the Final match of the day and entire tournament.
As usual, the authentic Irish pub will proudly begin celebrating St. Patrick’s Day long before March 17 with events like a Beer Tastings, Irish Themed Pub Quiz and the St Baldrick’s Charity Event. This year, guests will be hoping to inherit some of that infamous Irish luck, as the newest addition to the annual St. Patrick’s Day celebration features a chance to win an all-expenses paid vacation for two to Ireland. The winner will receive flights, hotel and a tour of the Guinness Brewery at St. James Gate in Dublin. Enter the contest here and the winner will be announced on March 30.
