Saint Patricks Day in Fort Myers, Florida

16 Mar

Oh what a time it will be. There is quite a bit going on for St. Patty’s day in Fort Myers, Florida. The first of which is where I will begin, downtown Fort Myers at 6pm they are having a block party. St Patrick’s Day is the perfect time of year to show your true Irish, like me, a Callahan.  Celebrate your (or my) Irish Heritage or simply just go out and party, either way it will be fun.

Paddy’s Day, is an annual feast day which celebrates Saint Patrick, one of the patron saints of Ireland. Around this time of year you will find several St Patricks Day Parades, Irish Festivals and of course Green Beer. Not only is this day is a national holiday in Ireland but for most here in Fort Myers FL, St Patrick’s Day 2010 is a day to party and celebrate with friends!

Fun things to do on St Pattys in Fort Myers

  1. Drink a pint of Guinness

  2. Go to the downtown Fort Myers Blockparty around 6pm.

  3. Hit the local Irish pubs, like Fitzgeralds, Cathy’s,  or McCabes.

  4. Drink 2 Irish car bombs and then have a *light green beer (*usually just food coloring and some shitty light brew, like Bud light)

  5. Go party at Ichabods. Dwyers (the previous name for the same place) threw great parties, I hope and think that Ichabods is going to keep that tradition alive.

  6. “Shamrocks and Shenanigans” St. Patrick’s Day Tent Party @ Cru Restaurant in The Bell Tower Shops (239.466-3663)

  7. Take a shot of Jameson and follow with a Black & Tan

  8. Party at Reserve Wine and Cigar Bar Green beer, other drink specials flowing. They are raising money too, so this should be a good one, but don’t forget your wallet you cheap f*cks.

  9. City Tavern celebration $2 22-ounce Bud and Bud Light drafts (yikes! Bud mud here we come!!), live music by Drunk Monkeys

  10. All the clubs downtown will have something going on…I’m sure most of it will involve everything that isn’t St. Patty’s

  11. Drink Smithwicks (my favorite beer)

  12. Gulf Goast Town Center and all those bars will have something going on. Bar Louie, Cigar Bar, etc…there has to be something going on there.

So all in all, I look forward to seeing everyone out. It should be fun. Call a cab if (or when) you get hammered. Good luck and have a great day hanging out in Fort Myers (or Naples) for Saint Patrick’s Day!
