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!

Wine is just fine but whiskey is wonderful.

Your lover is always going on about the bouquet of their favorite Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley, but for you there is nothing better than a few fingers of good whiskey. Neat -- the Irish way.

Want to know the secret to converting a wine drinker to a whiskey lover? Take them by the hand, climb aboard a beautiful yacht, and float down the Hudson while you both sample some of the best whiskeys the world has to offer. By the end of the evening, there will only be one thing on your minds -- whiskey.

Not that other thing. Get your head out of the gutter.

Okay. You’ve been saving this secret for a special day:

You’re an incredible singer -- at least, you think you are. And after a few drinks, you’ll even get up and start singing Wagon Wheel at a party. You may not have a perfect Irish tenor, but you do sound better than Bob Dylan when he sang it. So there's that...

Do something different for your St. Patrick’s Day weekend and take your special somebody out to an open mic. You’ll showcase your talents and maybe discover some hidden talents you never knew your lover had -- Like playing the guitar. Very poorly.

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.

Sláinte!

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.
