As March brings the start of a new season, it also the kicks off spring celebrations beginning with St. Patrick’s Day on Sunday, March 17.
Looking to celebrate without the green beer-seeking crowds and the sounds of bagpipes? Call up the crew for a day of celebrating the festive holiday at Punch Bowl Social (340 SW Morrison St., Portland, Oregon 97204). If it’s luck you’re after, order a bowl of the spirited “Tickle My Leprechaun” punch made with Paddy’s Irish Whiskey, refreshing mint currant syrup, spiced plum tea and fresh lemon juice garnished with a pickled lemon wheel and cherry.
Stick around after for scratch-made dishes appropriate for the occasion like Knockoff Burger or a bowl of greens in the Superfood Grain Bowl. Don’t forget to try your new-found luck on a round of bowling, ping pong or a reaching the new highest score on an arcade game or two.
