St. Patrick’s Day 2020: Corned beef, green beer & drink specials in Tucson

A few local spots are offering some lucky specials.

Much like searching for a pot of gold, Tucsonans often scour the city for a place to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.

Whether it’s green beer, something a tad craftier, a bite of corned beef, or simply a place you can spend time and pinch those that aren’t wearing green, take a gander at some of what the city has to offer.

Keep in mind that some of these events are happening on the weekend before St. Patrick’s Day. Also, this list will be updated as we find out about additional events.
