This Weekend in Western Washington – St. Patrick’s Day & More

Are you at a loss for something to do this weekend? I find that hard to believe, but if it's true, and you call Western Washington home, then check out the list of activities below. They are guaranteed to keep you occupied all weekend....or at least keep you celebrating your Irish heritage.

Airways Brewing (at the Beer and Bistro)

In Kent, Airways Brewing will be serving up traditional Irish fare at the Bistro. Kind of. The menu will include corned beef tacos; vegetarian Guinness stew; pretzels with curried Sky Hag mustard, onion marmalade, and rarebit; and Jameson pecan pie. To wash it down, They will have a Randall of our Chocolate Stout run through mint, plus more dark beers on tap. 12:00 – 10:00 pm. Grownups only (21+).  Not at the brewery, but in downtown Kent at the Airways Beer & Bistro.

The Beer Junction

In West Seattle, The Beer Junction will introduce Rocky the Randle on Friday at 5:00. They will also be serving Iron Horse Irish Death Milkshakes with Husky Deli Ice Cream!

Boundary Bay Brewing

The city of Bellingham celebrates with a Saint Patrick’s Day Parade on Saturday. It just so happens that the parade route ends the Boundary Bay brewpub. Live music in the beer garden and the pub, Irish dancers, and lots of fun. We were there a couple years ago. Check out our post. For more information about the events at Boundary Bay, visit their website. Also, more Irish shenanigans on Sunday at the pub.

Chuckanut Brewery and Kitchen

Also in Bellingham, Chuckanut Brewery & Kitchen also plans to celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day over the course of two days this year. The Chuckanut Kitchen has already started the new Irish-inspired Locavore menu featuring Corned Beef & Cabbage plus a delicious Irish Stout Stew. For dessert there’s an Irish Cream Crème Brulee and a Chocolate Stout Brownie with a chocolate Stout genache. Entertainment will start with Puirt Na Gael, a group of musicians playing Celtic and Irish music on Saturday at 7:00 p.m. On Sunday, live Irish music starts at 4:00 pm with duo James X 2 followed by quartet Ask Sophie at 7:00 pm. Of course there’s always the chance the bag pipe players will stop in on either day for some rousing bag piping!

Parkway Tavern in Tacoma

Celebrate Saint Pant’s Day at The Parkway Tavern in Tacoma. This is a pants drive and a beer bash. Read our previous post for details. This is a very cool idea. People forget about pants, especially when they’ve been drinking on Saint Patrick’s Day.

White Bluffs Brewing

Over the mountains in Richland, White Bluffs Brewing has put together a special menu for Saint Patrick’s Day. Corned beef and cabbage, Reuben sandwiches, shepherds pie, and more. All of this accompanied by their delicious beers.

Puyallup River Alehouse

Puyallup River Alehouse all weekend. Friday thru Sunday they will offer Imperial Pint specials (you keep the glass!) of Guinness, Harp, and Smithwicks. They will also have Dick’s Irish, Diamond Knot Slane’s Irish, Chuckanut Green Kolsch, Iron Horse Irish Death, and a special dry stout from Puyallup River Brewing! Eric likes to make Black & Tans… but Eric LOVES to make BlackHops! (Guinness & IPA). Also have a bunch of cool St. Paddy’s swag to raffle off.

Harmon Brewing (Tap Room)

They will celebrate all weekend long. For complete details visit them on Facebook. Highlights include special Irish-themed menu items and live music. They will have a heated beer garden (tent) set up outside. The drums and pipes happen on Sunday night.
