St. Patrick’s Day is upon us and the Brighton Howell Area is ready to celebrate! Lucky for you, whether you’re looking for delicious Irish fare, bagpipes, step-dancers, or your yearly fix of green beer, you can find it in Livingston County! Don your best green gear and keep your eye out for four-leaf clovers as you get ready to celebrate St. Paddy’s Day.
The menu at 2Fog’s is already a hit, featuring favorites like scotch eggs, the lamb burger, and warm bread pudding. For St. Patrick’s Day, celebrate with a delicious meal from this downtown favorite. Eat up!
If you’re looking for fun for the whole family, head to downtown Pinckney on Saturday the 19th! The fun kicks off at 11am with the Pet Costume Contest. At 12pm the parade steps off from People’s Church and travels east down Main Street. Remember to wear green!
For all of the Irish-themed gifts and goodies you could ask for, check out Bridget Gallagher’s Irish Tours and Treasures. Bridget Gallagher’s offers intimate tours of Ireland and the Celtic nations, as well as authentic Irish gifts.
