Over the next week Brisbane will turn a bright shade of emerald green in the lead up to the St Patrick’s Day.
This celebration of all things Irish continues to grow in popularity and it’s not hard to see why: loads of live music, free flowing beer and a great excuse to dress up like a loon. Seriously what’s not to like?
However with the day itself being on a Tuesday (a school night for most of us) many venues are making it a full weekend celebration, which means there are ample opportunities to enjoy the “craic” at one of the many St Patrick’s Day events around town.
But what exactly IS the craic? There are many definitions but the one I think says it best is…
“An Irish word for fun and enjoyment, usually mixed with alcohol and music”
I reckon it doesn’t get much better than that!
So if this sounds like your cup of tea / pint of Guinness then check out this guide to where to find the best craic on St Patrick’s Day in Brisbane…
