Happy St. Paddy’s Day! We rounded up 8 excellent activities for you and yours to enjoy throughout the 405 — so today and this weekend, get your green on, rally your crew and buckle up for a great time!
Kiss Me, I’m Irish: Oklahoma City St. Patrick’s Day Bar Crawl – This 6-stop bar crawl features the best St. Paddy’s drink specials and bars in OKC. The crawl is from 6 pm to 2 am; you can mosey at your own pace, but wristbands must be picked up by 11 pm from Revolutions before starting your trek (200 S. Oklahoma Ave Suite HD). Featured bars are: Revolutions (registration), Fuel, JJ’s Alley, Parlor OKC, Skinny Slim’s and Whiskey Chicks.
Myriad Gardens – Green is all the talk and there is no better way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day than taking a walk through OKC’s grandest indoor jungle: The Myriad Botanical Gardens. Round up your family and lose track of time roaming through a sea of green. It is rumored a leprechaun is going to be on the loose, and his first mission is turning the Myriad Gardens Lake green! Enjoy the carousel until 5 pm and other activities the garden has to offer.
Up-Down’s St. Patrick’s Scavenger Hunt – Up-Down is a retro video game bar located in the Plaza District. Ages 21 and up are welcome. You’ll want to bring your lucky charm, because the scavenger hunt starts at 7 pm; solve all the clues first to win a cauldron of Up-Down tokens. Hydrate with cold green beer, indulge in delicious pizza and enjoy some friendly competition in a lively, hip atmosphere.
Chicken N Pickle – From 11 am to 11 pm on Thursday, Chicken N Pickle is offering a great selection of St. Patrick’s Day food and drink specials. With a festive menu and a wide range of activities, Chicken N Pickle is a perfect family-friendly place to bask in green beer and St. Paddy’s cheer. Later in the evening, you can catch DJ Chappell at 8 pm.
VZD’s Restaurant & Bar – Get ready to sham-rock out with live bands The Flannels and What She Said while enjoying $2 green beer and corned beef with cabbage and mashed potatoes. The music starts at 6 pm and the party will keep rockin’ until close.
The Wilshire Dive Bar – This revamped historic speakeasy is offering 50% off Jameson and tequila all day, as well as $4 baby Guinness.

St. Paddy’s Day Brew Crawl – OKC Brew Tours is a local service created to give the ultimate craft beer experience — and it is definitely worth checking out.
