We're finally approaching springtime in Missoula, and as the weather starts to get warmer, we look forward to a few things in March - Daylight Saving Time, the NCAA tournament... but most exciting is probably St. Patrick's Day.

Now this year, St. Patrick's Day falls on a Tuesday, which isn't typically a day when you can do a whole lot of partying. That's why most of the big celebrations in Missoula will be happening on the Saturday before, including the parade! And The Thomas Meagher Bar is prepared to open early on Saturday to start things off right with a Pre Paddy's Party.

Here's the info from their Facebook event page:
