St. Patrick's Day Parade and Faire Saturday, March 14
St. Patrick's Day won't technically go down until Tuesday, but this Saturday you can celebrate the holiday and all things green at the 32nd annual St. Patrick's Day Parade and Faire. The faire starts at 10 a.m. and will be located at Margaret T. Hance Park in downtown Phoenix. Admission costs $10 for adults (ages 13 and over) and the fest will feature Irish music and dancers, a kids area, crafts, and, of course, food and drinks. For more information visit the St. Patrick's Day Parade and Faire website.
Pi Day Saturday, March 14
This weekend Del Frisco's Grille is taking it back to high school algebra days and celebrating Pi Day -- as in π, 3.14, the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter. In honor of Pi Day the restaurant will be serving white chocolate shaving-topped Coconut Cream Pie for $3.14 -- because there's no better way to celebrate a mathematical constant than with a sweet deal on a dessert. The Pie Day deal will be available from from 4 to 11 p.m. For more information check the Del Frisco's Grille Facebook.
