Pipe up. By our count, the Shannon Rovers Irish Pipe Band will be playing at 25 different bars on St. Paddy's Day. If you can keep up with their pace, you'll deserve some sort of prize. If contemporary Irish music's more your bag, try Tributosaurus -- as Van Morrison -- at FitzGerald's St. Patrick's Day Festival or the Tossers at Metro.
Eat Guinness. That's right, we said "eat." The stout is showing up in dishes around the city, including in a Guinness pizza topped with potatoes, onions and bechamel at Frasca Pizzeria and Wine Bar and Guinness-spiked beer cheese dip at Dunlays on the Square.
Take it outside. It's supposed to be in the 50s tomorrow, so you won't be freezing while roaming Rush Street at the annual Shamrock Around the Block celebration. The $3.50 Miller Lite drafts will be flowing as you dodge leprechauns on stilts, Irish pipers and more at She-nannigans, Bootleggers, The Original Mother's, Mother's Too and The Lodge. 11 a.m.-4 a m.
