Windsor Terrace's St. Patrick's Day Parade, March 18 — Brooklynian

Windsor Terrace's St. Patrick's Day Parade, March 18

Sun 03/18 Luck of the Irish

Brooklyn Based wrote: Park Slope / Windsor Terrace By the time Sunday rolls around, it’s likely you’ll have had your fill of green beer and drunk college students stumbling around your neighborhood. For a kinder, gentler St. Patrick’s Day celebration, head to Park Slope and Windsor Terrace for the annual Brooklyn St. Patrick’s Day Parade. The traditionally Irish neighborhoods do St. Patrick’s Day up in an old-school style, with a parade featuring Irish step dancers, bagpipes, and general community good vibes. The parade kicks off at Bartel Pritchard Circle at Prospect Park West and 14th Street, and then heads up 7th Avenue and back down PPW. After the parade’s over, make like a local and hit up one of the two bars in Windsor Terrace. If you’re more likely to be wearing green skinny jeans or a vintage U2 t-shirt, stop by the Double Windsor for craft Irish beers, food specials, and, if we’re as lucky as last year, Robicelli’s Irish Car Bomb cupcakes. Or, go more traditional and stop by the sure-to-be-packed Farrell’s, an institution since the ’30s where St. Patrick’s Day is taken VERY seriously and beer comes in Styrofoam cups.



  • It may be time to begin the drinking

  • The afterparty in Bay Ridge includes "hangover helper" Bloody Marys:


    The mixologists at the Wicked Monk in Bay Ridge have developed an ingenious secret weapon to fight this weekend’s inevitable St. Patrick’s Day hangover — more drinking!

    “It’s like what you learn in school, two negatives make a positive,” explained Wicked Monk bartender Daniel Hallahan, who will be hosting a special hangover party on March 18, where $3 Bloody Mary specials will be a welcome alternative to the gallons of water and fistfuls of Tylenol traditionally taken by those still reeling from the side affects of too much St. Patrick’s Day cheer.

  • This study purports that sexually deprived males drink more.

    Which has me wondering, "Do you think this phenomena explains the bad behavior of some men on the St. Patrick's Day holiday?"

    Having seen some of the attendees at past events, I find it hard to blame women for not putting out.

    ...I suspect Jameson is often to blame.
