St. Patrick's Day in the Valley

It's almost St. Patrick's Day... you know what that means... amateur night #1 of the year (who can guess what #2 and #3 are?!).

I'm sure there will be a thorough list of Patty's Day activities in The Morning Call and Express-Times weekend editions, but I wanted to share a couple of unusual events that I might want to check out:

1. Allentown St. Patrick's Day Parade activities in the West End.
On March 21, the Parade sponsors a Pub Crawl. $15 gets you drink specials, bus transportation if you want it, and a T-shirt. Participating pubs: Jack Callaghan’s Ale House, Ringers Roost, Volpe’s Sports Bar, Ruffinos Pizza, Mixx Lounge @ The Rose Bowl, Liberty Street Tavern, Greg’s West End Saloon, Maingate, and Stooge’s. If you're not hurting too badly the next day, join The West End 5k run, which mostly follows the parade route, kicking off at 12:30 p.m. Registration is $25. The parade starts at the Allentown Fairgrounds at 1:30 p.m.

2. Donegal Square's "Best Men's Legs in a Kilt" Contest on March 14 at 2 p.m. The postcard says "Contest open to men only. Must be wearing a kilt (at least)." 534 Main Street in Historic Bethlehem.

Festive! How will you celebrate?
