There’s so much more to Saint Patrick’s Day than chocolate gold coins, green beer and cartoon leprechauns. The feast day of Saint Patrick celebrates the patron saint of Ireland, and if you ever get to enjoy the holiday in Dublin, you’re in for a real party. If you can’t make the trip across the pond, don’t worry. Las Vegas has plenty of events to celebrate the Irish holiday with education, parties and of course—yes, the green beer.
