Saturday, March 17 will mark one of the biggest events in Morgantown, W.Va. St. Patrick’s Day brings students together all over the West Virginia University campus.
After the men’s basketball NCAA tournament blowout on Thursday night, Mountaineers need a holiday to bring the pride back to life.
“Our boys played a good game, but our town needs a good who-raw for self-esteem purposes, said Zach Kendrick, WVU student and bouncer at The Cellar. “I can’t wait to see the students cheer up for St. Patrick’s Day.”
The Cellar, along with the rest of High St. plans to be bombarded with crowds of green. Students, not only from West Virginia University, attend the festivities.
“Everyone is Irish on Saturday!” said Amber Baker, Fairmont State student. “I come to WVU ever year for two events: Halloween and St. Patrick’s Day.”
Bars are opening extremely early for the holiday. The Boston Beanery opens their doors at 8 a.m. Along with Mario’s Fish Bowl at 11 a.m., Joe Mama’s at noon, McClafferty’s at 2 p.m. and several more.
Green beer is not the only drink that will be spilling out of mugs on Saturday. Bars are recommended and encouraged to offer great prices on almost all Irish related beverages, such as: Killians, Guinness, Irish Car Bombs, Irish-American shots, Dancing Leprechaun’s, and many, many more.
Make sure to get out with your fellow Mountaineers and celebrate an exciting celebration. Stop drowning in the NCAA sorrows. St. Patrick’s Day is here to bring the campus back to life!
