Are you looking for a St. Patrick’s Day celebration that won’t leave them hating life the next morning? It’s likely, so we say trade in the gross green eggs, early-morning keg stands and bypass the belligerent drunk crowds this year to head to midtown’s newest restaurant hotspot, The Rag Trader.

Born and raised Irishman and owner Mark Fox knows how to do the holiday right — which basically just means FEASTING. On Saturday March 17th, The Rag Trader will be serving two delicious traditional Irish dishes for the holiday.

After you are properly stuffed, head downstairs to the lively subterranean lounge Bo Peep Cocktail & Highball Store to try out their whimsically unique cocktail menu, while the lavish interior and nightly live piano transports you right to mid-1900s Ireland. Still feeling the urge for a thematic drink in your hand? Order the green-hued Smuggler’s Run — a creamy delight with rum, lime, Curacao, pistachio, and vanilla.
