Five Must-See St. Patrick's Day Parties in Phoenix

This Saturday, the traditional Sláintes and Céad Míle Fáiltes will likely fall on deaf and buzzing ears, as your bar-hopping friends and fellow patrons will be more focused on the next round of car bombs and Irish flag shots. (Good luck with that crème de menthe...)

Yes, it's St. Patrick's Day, and while the parades and kid-friendly events fill parks around the Valley (check out our St. Patrick's Day Guide for the full rundown), we know you'll be making a beeline to the first place you can get a wristband. 

Here are five must-see parties around town. Green clothing not required.
