St. Patrick’s Day suggestions

Many restaurants and bars around town will gear up for tomorrow’s celebrations of St. Patrick’s Day, which gratefully falls on a Friday this year. Here are a few of the perhaps less likely to be thought of places doing special things for the day.

Noosh Nosh, 4816 Brownsboro Center, will feature Guinness stew, corned beef and cabbage, Irish soda bread, Scotch eggs, and fish and chips. Noosh Nosh will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner with a variety of specialty coffees and a full bar.

Bristol Bar & Grille, 1321 Bardstown Rd., is continuing its 40th-anniversary beer price rollback even on St. Patty’s Day. Local and regional draft beer, craft beer and imported bottles from around the globe are priced more or less as they were in 1977. The throwback beer list includes 10-ounce drafts starting at $1.50, 20-ounce drafts starting at $2.75, craft & imported bottles starting at $1.75 and all domestic bottles for only $1.25. 

Chef Robin Richardson at the Bakery at Sullivan is offering shamrock cookies at $1.75 each and Guinness cupcakes for $2.95. Other pastries in the bakery will be festively “dressed” for St. Patty’s day.

And, of course, rowdy fun is sure to be had at the various Irish-themed bars, such as O’Shea’s Irish Pub, Highlands, 956 Baxter Ave., Downtown, 123 W. Main St. or in Jeffersonville, 355 Spring St.; Flanagan’s Ale House, 934 Baxter Ave.; Molly Malone’s Irish Pub. Highlands, 933 Baxter Ave. and St. Matthews, 3900 Shelbyville Rd.; The Irish Rover, 2319 Frankfort Ave.; Shenanigan’s Irish Grill, 1611 Norris Pl.; and Pat’s Steakhouse, 2437 Brownsboro Rd.
