Fremont Bars Will Be A Little Busy For The Next Few Days

If you own a drinking establishment that caters to the sporting crowd, the next four days are your Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa wrapped up into one special time.

St. Patrick’s Day is today, March 17th, meaning there’s going to be a lot of green, a lot of stranger-hugging and a lot of singing along to ‘Sweet Caroline.’

The NCAA Tournament’s opening rounds are also today through Sunday, so there will be meaningful, do-or-die basketball games on TV from the moment you wake up til the moment you go to sleep.

So, word to the wise, don’t be shocked if it takes a little longer inside The Dubliner, Red Door, LTD, Dad Watson’s, George & Dragon and Woodsky’s to get your can of Rainier today. Don’t be shocked if there’s a cover at one or two of them either.

Some of the specifics include…

  • Woodsky’s is having a huge party with drink specials all night long, including Jameson Shot Ski’s.
  • The Dubliner is having their usual no-frills, day-long celebration with: tasty food, drinks, and musical performances including Whiskey Galore (who are often compared to the famous Celtic group The Pogues, if you’re a fan). Expect a $5 cover starting in the late afternoon.

There will be plenty of St. Patrick’s Day deal around town, like Kylie’s Pizza, where they’re serving up a Corned Beef & Cabbage deep dish pizza. Not to be outdone, Pie is offering a Corned Beef, Potato & Cabbage Pie.

On the March Madness front, if you’re looking forward to rooting for the hometown Washington Huskies, you’ll have to wait until Friday. They’re set for tip-off at 6:45 p.m. Friday night. If you want a seat at the bar, wherever you are, get there early.

LTD Bar will be open at 9am every morning over the next four days to make sure you have a place to watch each and every game.

If they win, the Huskies will play again on Sunday, though the game time is currently TBD. Check out the full schedule for Thursday and Friday’s games here.
