St. Patrick's Day in Tempe: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Three signs of a good St. Patrick's Day Party: Not wearing an obnoxious amount of green, having a pint in your hand, and looking great -- even if you're wasted.

The thousands who gathered at Tempe Beach Park to see Flogging Molly weren't the only ones celebrating Saint Patrick's Day in furious fashion along Mill Avenue on Sunday, March 17.

Bars and clubs like Fat Tuesday, The Handlebar, Canteen, Firehouse Tempe, and Robbie Fox's were packed to the rafters with college kids and cuties drinking green beer, wearing emerald colored clothing, and getting in plenty of fun on a school night.

We took a few fashionable notes and are back with conclusions. The Good is above, the Bad and the Ugly are after the jump, and the whole St. Patrick's Day slideshow is right here.

Two signs of a bad St. Patrick's Day outing: clearly taking part in all of the "green" activities and encouraging those around you to look at your "shamrocks."
