With St. Patrick’s Day falling on Sunday (March 17) this year, more people will be celebrating the holiday than in years past. However, just because you want to celebrate St. Patrick’s, it doesn’t follow that you want to spend a lot of money! If you’re looking to do St. Patrick’s Day on the cheap, here are a few tips to help you have a blast but not spend too much…
Tips for Going Out on St. Patrick’s Day
Look for St. Patrick’s Day specials. Many bars will offer open bar options for a per-head price. If you plan on drinking a lot, then buying an open bar ticket could save you money in the long run.
Then again, there are other bars that hardly acknowledge St. Patrick’s Day at all. If you still want to go out without being a part of the St. Patrick’s Day madness, look for happy hours and deals at bars that aren’t promoting St. Patrick’s Day.
If there aren’t any “deals” to be found in your neighborhood, consider going out for just a drink or two and then returning home with friends for an at-home party. Remember to have a designated driver.
How to Host a St. Patrick’s Day Party – For Nothing!
Liquor and beer can add up quickly. The best way to save money on your St. Patrick’s Day party is to have everyone bring their own beverages.
If you can afford to, it’s nice to be able to offer your guests something to drink. Try making a cheap St. Patrick’s Day punch from vodka, Sprite, and green food coloring. Add fresh limes and other ingredients to create something that’s festive and delicious.
Green food is always a hit for a St. Patrick’s Day party. Key lime pie, mint chip ice cream, and green popcorn are three easy and affordable green foods you can serve!
