Dogtown St. Patrick’s Day Parade: The official St. Patrick’s Day parade on Thursday, March 17th. It starts at 12:30pm at Tamm and Oakland and ends at Tamm and Manchester. As this is a historic Irish neighborhood, if you’re looking for the real deal, and not just a place to party (although that also a major part of it), then this is the place for you. This parade is more traditional, meaning no giant floats or Scooby Doo balloons. Most of the parade are members of the St. Louis Irish-American community marching as clans under their family crests, with some dancers and bands thrown in for good measure. Afterwards, visit local Irish Pubs like Seamus McDaniel’s, Pat’s Bar & Grill, Felix’s, and Colombo’s Tavern for a green beer.

Date: Thursday, March 17
Time: 12:30pm
Place: Dogtown – Tamm & Oakland

Doesn’t know how to cook and survives pretty much on macaroni and cheese and pizza, so naturally, loves to eat out at restaurants. However, one day when she is married and has a family to cook for, she would love to take cooking classes and learn awesome skills like the chefs on Iron Chef long as she doesn't have to clean the dishes afterwards.
