March 17 commemorates St. Patrick, a fine chap by seemingly all accounts, the Patron Saint of Ireland. Caroline Kaganov, general manager of Conor O’Neill’s for 17 years, and a native Dubliner, explains St. Patrick’s Day in Ireland as a “holy day of obligation. We go to the parade and maybe out for one pint.” In the States, once the calendar flips to March, anyone who ever drank a Guinness or listened to House Of Pain starts going brogue.

Per Caroline, Ireland welcomes all, which is why everyone is Irish (some, authentically) on St. Patty’s Day. This year will be filled with the usual carousing and while Conor’s serves corned beef and cabbage year-round, there are specific St. Patty’s Day protocols to uphold.

Conor’s offers St. Practice Day on March 11, opening at 10am with Irish music from noon-2am. On March 12, there’s Shamrocks & Shenanigans: a 5-K run with all proceeds going to Mott Children’s Hospital’s Save-A-Heart program. The pub opens at 7am on 3/17, with Irish music throughout the week.
