Green beer will be available at McGillin's on March 17 in honor of St. Patrick's Day. Seating will be first come, first served.

Last year, as the coronavirus spread across the U.S., St. Patrick's Day as we knew it in Philadelphia was canceled.

As the holiday comes up again, celebrations will still be different than previous years, but with people getting vaccinated, there's hope that the pandemic will end soon.
