Sage, pickle, emerald, seaweed, mint, lime, chartreuse and seafoam… no, it's not some weird recipe that cures any winter ailment, it's just a few of the shades of green you may want to wear during St. Patrick's Day weekend at Broadway at the Beach! From green drinks and eats to sharks and shamrocks to lacing up the running shoes with fellow leprechauns, there are many ways to celebrate the green weekend with us!
But first, history…
A quick google search tells us that Saint Patrick's Day or the Feast of Saint Patrick dates back to the 17th century and is a cultural and religious celebration held every year on March 17th in celebration of the holiday's namesake, the foremost patron saint of Ireland!
From Ireland to Broadway…
Although you are encouraged to don your favorite shade of green, you don't need the luck of the Irish to enjoy all of the festivities! Here's a quick three day Broadway breakdown of how you can celebrate the holiday all in one place!
Ready, Set… Go Green!
Before you enjoy all the tasty treats and sweet sips, you can kick off the weekend as you race around Broadway during the Shamrock-N-Roll 5K Run and Celebration on Friday, March 15th! The race begins at 6pm with the after party on The Avenue featuring live music by Backfire! For more information on the race and how to register, click here.
