If you’re looking for live music to celebrate St. Paddy’s day in Kirkland, head to Wilde Rover Irish Pub at 111 Central Way. Try their gluten-free Shepherd’s Pie made with slow-cooked lamb, root vegetables and caramelized onions – topped with Dubliner sharp cheddar. They’ve also got a great happy hour menu, killer burgers and tasty salads. There’ll also be a special appearance by the Eastside Firefighter Pipes & Drums Band – which will sound even better after a few tokes of Franken Kush from Downtown Cannabis Company.
JJ Mahoney’s in Bella Bottega at 8932 161st Ave NE in Redmond is the perfect spot to get your Irish on and watch the game.

Not feeling so Irish? Go Tex-Mex at The Matador at 7824 Leary Way NE in Redmond for one of the best happy hours around. Blaze up with some Mango Haze by Phat Panda before you go, and you’ll be ready for something spicy in no time. Try a scratch margarita and some black bean queso with your chips and salsa, or go straight to the chile-rubbed mahi mahi tacos or steak fajitas — just be sure to save room for fried ice cream for dessert! This place is the ultimate in Tex-Mex comfort food in Redmond and perfect for an alternate celebration of St. Paddy’s day.
