What to Do in Los Angeles for St. Patrick’s Day & Weekend

If you’ve gotten so swept up in the excitement of pre-Spring 80 degree weather around Los Angeles that you’ve forgotten to plan St. Patrick’s Day weekend fun, fear not!

Los Angeles has never been a city to turn down a celebration, much less an entire weekend of it. Here are some picks for fun things to do in Los Angeles for St. Patrick’s Day 2014 and as always, we encourage everyone to be responsible and never drive when under the influence of alcohol.
