Green Glendale: Your guide to St. Paddy's Day parties


The Irish party of the year is coming to Glendale.

St. Patrick’s Day arrives Friday, March 17, and we’re running down the best places to party around town.

The holiday observes the death of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, and has evolved into a celebration of Irish culture with parades, special foods, music, dancing, drinking and a whole lot of green.

“The holiday is grounded in history that dates back more than 1,500 years,” History.com writes. “The earliest known celebrations were held in the 17th century on March 17, marking the anniversary of the death of St. Patrick in the 5th century.”

Here’s what we know so far about Green Glendale in no particular order:

Tim Finnegan's Irish Restaurant and Pub

Address: 17045 N. 59th Ave., Suite 103

Finnegan's opens for breakfast at 7:30 a.m., and there will be live music all day long. Step Dancers will do what they do best at 11:30 a.m., and look for bagpipes and drums three times throughout the day: at noon, 4 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

There will be a draft beer truck and outside bars. No reservations; first come first served inside,

Padre Murphy's

Address: 4338 W. Bell Road

A Glendale mainstay since 1993, Padre Murphy's opens at 9:30 a.m. on the big day.

There will be live music all day, plus Irish Step Dancers at noon, and, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., face painting.

Bagpipes and drums will perform three times throughout the day: at 12:30 p.m., 7 p.m. and 8 p.m.

The classic Irish band Trotters Wake will play from 4 to 7 p.m. in the Padre Murphy's tent.
