Going Green: Where to Celebrate St. Patrick's Day in San Francisco

By

St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner, and unless you have your own stock of corned beef and whiskey at home, you're going to need somewhere to indulge in Irish delicacies. We rounded up the best places to celebrate this Thursday. 


Irish American Milkshake 

An indulgent mix of Guinness stout, house-made Russell's Root Beer syrup, milk chocolate, and sweet cream ice cream, the Irish American milkshake at The Ice Cream Bar is worth every single mile you'll need to run to work it off. It's only available from March 14-20, and thank goodness, otherwise we might have to eat one every day. // 815 Cole St. (Cole Valley), theicecreambarsf.com
