While the Hoboken St. Patrick’s Day pub crawl may have passed, officially St. Patrick’s Day doesn’t start until March 17th. With that being the case, there are still many fun holiday activities you can partake in to keep up the St. Patrick’s Day spirit! Whether you’re celebrating St. Pat’s at home, at a friend’s or at your favorite Irish pub, the aim of the day is have some good “craic” (Irish for fun).
There are all sorts of popular St. Patrick’s Day games and ideas to choose from for your St. Paddy’s Day bash. Get in the mood by decking out your apartment – add some shamrock and leprechaun cutouts, Irish flags and green streamers. Bring it up an authentic notch by making a festive centerpiece with Irish bells (to bring good luck) and white calla lilies (symbolizing beauty).
Nothing says “Erin go Bragh” like these Irish treats! Check out this website for some ideas; there’s mint chocolate Guinness brownies, boozy shamrock milkshakes, Irish cupcake pops and corned beef and cabbage mini-sliders. All perfect food choices if you’re looking to host your own St. Paddy’s Day party in your Rivington apartment.
Invite your neighbors over this March 17th and play a few games. Try out your luck with Irish-themed Bingo. Create your own St. Patrick’s Day Pictionary with Irish themed clues written on small shamrocks or play St. Patrick’s Day Trivia. Make it interesting with a Green Beverage Contest, by seeing who can make the best green cocktail. All the losers have to drink up, of course (maybe the winners too!)
