Get ready to party this weekend. St. Patrick’s Day is Saturday and that’s just one of many events in the area.
Escape on Friday to the all-new Infusion Lounge at Universal CityWalk. Happy hour runs from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and special guest DJ HEM will be providing the dance beats. The lounge enforces a dress code so wear something nice. By the way, if you visit CityWalk on Saturday you’ll be able to meet Dr. Seuss’ Lorax! (Metro Red Line to Universal City Station or Metro Bus 156 to Cahuenga/Universal Studios and take the free shuttle up to CityWalk.)
For those of you who want nothing more from this Saturday other than green beer, you have plenty of options to get it from. Discover L.A.has put together a St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl with Metro guide, featuring some of L.A.’s best Irish pubs that are accessible by Metro. My personal pick is Casey’s Irish Pub. The festivities, which takes over two city blocks, start at 6 a.m. and features live music and great food until 2 a.m. The outdoor area will be tented so there’s no need to worry about bad weather. Admission is free. Don’t get there too late or you’ll be waiting in line for awhile. (Metro Red/Purple Line to 7th/Metro Station, walk east down 7th Street and turn left on Grand. Metro Bus 14, 96 to Grand/6th.)
