Did you give up beer for Lent, if so I have good news!  Saint Patrick's Day, a Christian day for feasting in the early 17th century, commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. Together we celebrate the heritage and culture of the Irish on St. Patrick's Day with parades and festivals, we wear green and yes, we drink green beer! No worries though if you gave beer up this year, Christian Lenten restrictions on eating and drinking alcohol are lifted for St. Patrick's Day!  We encourage you to bookmark St. Patrick's Tampa Bay 2017 | Official Events, Fun Pubs and More as the fun begins on both sides of the Bay this weekend. Hint:  look for the St. Practice Day event and let's get ready for St. Patrick's Day 2017.
