Kiss me, I’m Irish! 5 Perfect St. Patrick’s Day Date Spots for Your Bonnie Lass or Laddy

Last St. Patrick’s Day in NYC was not your finest moment.

You passed out on the steps to the train, threw your shoes into a dumpster, and tried to go swimming in the Gowanus. There are so many embarrassing moments from last St. Patty’s Day, you can’t even remember them all.

But you're older now. And alas, wiser. And you're not single anymore, so you have to be responsible -- well, at least a little bit responsible.

Everybody's Irish on St Patrick's Day, so take your lover out on the town this weekend and celebrate in an adult way. These date ideas are so good, you’ll get treated like The Blarney stone for months -- if you stay out of trouble!

Guinness is good for you!

It makes you funnier and better looking -- as long as your partner is drinking it too.

Okay, so a brewery tour for St. Patrick’s Day is a bit cliche, but this is a brewery tour that would make an Irishman proud. Take your lassy or your fella around the city on an epic quest to find a pint to rival a Guinness -- spoiler alert: you can’t -- but these beers are damn near as good as anything back on The Emerald Isle.

You remember how your grandmother would bust out ‘the good crystal’ for special occasions? Remember how you weren't allowed to use it? You’re all grown up now and your boo’s fam is coming over to dinner -- it’s time to get your hands on some fancy glassware!

Except -- Grandma’s stuff was from Waterford, Ireland, where the world famous crystal company blows elegance into every glass. And that’s like, super far away from Brooklyn.

Try something a little closer to home with a glassblowing class for two this St. Patty's Day and get a taste for Irish art. You’ll create crystal that will make your grandmother proud -- definitely proud enough to use as a dish for all that stale candy she keeps around.
