St. Patrick's Day is upon us, and it happens to fall on a Saturday. You know what that means. Parties, drink specials, and of course, green beer. Not all of these places will have artificially colored alcoholic ales, but at least they'll help you have a good time. Here are the best places to show your Irish pride in the Gem City this year.

The Buckhorn is hosting bands Edison and Moral Panic for their St. Paddy's Day festivities in a band-laden event including special St. Patrick's inspired drinks and specials. Check out this party with great music downtown at the Buckhorn, their facebook event is here.

Copper's Corner

O'Dwyers Irish Pub

Of course, no list on St. Patrick's Day in Laramie would be complete without mentioning the resident Irish Pub, O'Dwyers - celebrating their 5th Anniversary in Laramie with a big blow-out all day. Pop on by in the morning for an Irish breakfast, Irish food specials throughout the afternoon, including a Guinness-Lamb Irish Stew, Corned beef and Cabbage, and Irish Cream Cheese Cake. Drink specials, Irish trivia, and giveaways all day long, with Traditional Irish Musicians taking over the pub at 5 pm. They say they Bleed Green all year long, but this Saturday, O'Dwyers is definitely the place to be.
