As St. Patrick's Day approaches many of us will be busting out our questionable all green ensembles and "kiss me I'm Irish" tees. But what will you be doing on St. Patrick's Day (besides wearing that awful outfit)? Going out wherever the night takes you?

While that spontaneity is important, the luck of the Irish can only guide you so far in terms of finding a place to celebrate St. Patrick's Day

So, if you don't plan on spending St. Patty's day in your apartment drinking with your roommates, here are 5 places you can go this St. Patrick's day in Harrisonburg.

Capital Ale House

Great food and drinks. I have never had a bad experience here. The Capital Ale house has a wide selection on tap, so everyone can find something they like. 

Dave's Taverna

A Harrisonburg landmark. Whether you're craving a gyro on this Irish holiday or some buffalo balls, this place has some of the best food in all of Harrisonburg.

Jack Brown's

There is a reason why this place gets mentioned so often when we talk about some of the best places in Harrisonburg. With the inventive burgers and a cold beer to wash it down, this is a go-to when going out. It's also stays open till 2am, so the celebration can continue on late into the night!

Wolfe Street Brewing

A locally owned brewery that embodies the idea of great craft beer. Everyone over 21 needs to visit Wolfe Street Brewing before graduation, why not do it for St. Patrick's day?

Jimmy Madison's

Southern comfort food is just what I want when I'm looking to get my drink on. I love pretty much everything that I have ever ordered here. Jimmy Madison's is also a whiskey bar. Meaning, you can celebrate St. Patrick's day with some good ole' Irish whiskey. They also have plenty of other drink options that will surely get you into the spirit too. 

There you have it. If you plan on going out this St. Patrick's day be sure to check out one of these rad places, they will not disappoint. Make sure to tag us in you St. Patrick's Day eats on Insta too, and may the luck of the Irish be with you this March 17th!
