Top o’ the morning dear readers!
Next Wednesday is St. Patrick’s Day, which means Seattle Date Night has another round of events compiled for you that you just canNOT miss! WE never forget a holiday!
Just remember, though, if it’s a first or second-date, you may want to skip down to the bottom of this list for a more thoughtful and demure (and less “I’m an alcoholic”) style date… Just sayin’.

And finally, if going out and dealing with all the swarms of people on the biggest drinking day of the year doesn’t appeal to you (and isn’t your idea of a splendid Date Night), fear not! This holiday is a GREAT opportunity for a Themed Date Night!
IRISH DATE NIGHT!
Whip up some corned beef and cabbage stew, pick up some authentic Irish beers from your local specialty market (add a little green food-coloring to make it even more authentic!), and rent a couple Irish movies.
My favorite of course is Far and Away, but there are TONS to choose from!
Grab your sweetie and make the most of this “lucky” holiday!
