Amateur drinkers and green beer are definitely not among our favorite things about St. Patrick's Day. But if you can skip the bar scene tonight, there are some delicious goodies awaiting you at SF and Oakland restaurants. Whether you're kicking the night off with reuben plancha buns or closing it out with a Lucky Charms sundae, these snacks will give you all the fun and none of the hangover.Read More
5 Insane Snacks to Try For St. Patrick's Day
Skip the green beer and pick up one of these goodies tonight.
Batter by the Bay
Wing Wings is hosting a special St. Paddy's edition of Irish native Gillian Fitzgerald's Batter by the Bay, which will feature both her authentic beer-battered fish and chips and a tribute to the "spice burger," a Dublin chip-shop staple, from Wesburger. Catch them from 5-9 pm.
Social Kitchen & Brewery
Social Kitchen is doing a twist on spinach dip with Kerrygold Dubliner cheese, white beans, rosemary, and spinach flour, accompanied by tortilla chips for $10. You can also get corned beef and cabbage and, of course, beer aplenty.
The infamous Slocombe St. Patrick's sundae, a combination of Guinness ice cream, Bailey's-tinged marshmallow fluff, and Lucky Charms, is available today at both of their locations. (Pot of gold sold separately.)
Taco Tuesday meets St. Patrick's at The Trappist tonight, with corned beef smoked at sister restaurant Perdition Smokehouse and whipped into taco form by the wizards at neighboring Mexican spot Tamarindo. They also promise "no green beer" (but plenty of specialty Belgian brews).
The Half Orange
In honor of the holiday, Jay Porter's Fruitvale beer-and-snack spot is shaking up its plancha buns (Chinese bao steamed on a plancha) by offering a reuben edition. It's a much more fun way to get your corned beef than boring old cabbage.
