Today, as most of you know, is St. Patrick’s Day. It is a day where many look forward to sloppy, unsanitary gatherings in cramped pubs with friends and strangers alike. However due to recent circumstances surrounding COVID-19, bars, restaurants and other gathering places are closed to the public, forcing the St. Patty’s Day crowd into their homes to celebrate in isolation.
For those who may be sad about missing out this St. Patty’s Day, have no fear! Thanks to the internet it is possible to party safely in quarantine with (a maximum of) ten of your closest friends or party pals.
Artists such as Dropkick Murphys, Dirty Dead, and even some of your favorite local acts will be performing via live streams through Youtube, Facebook, and other online services.
