Cowboy Ciao

There will be a St. Paddy's Day Sommelier Showdown at Cowboy Ciao on Sunday. The five-course dinner kicks off at 6:30 p.m., and each course will have not one but two wine pairings. Owner Peter Kasperski will go head-to-head against Quench Fine Wines' brand ambassador/Leprechaun Ryan Patrick McLaughlin. Dinner will be composed of re-imagined Irish favorites, and the full menu will be a delicious surprise. The five-course dinner with 10 wine pairings is only $60 per person. Call 480-946-3111 to reserve your spot.

Sandbar Mexican Grill

Half-Irish, half-Mexican? Believe it or not, there's a St. Paddy's party in town just for you! The traditional Irish holiday gets a unique cultural infusion at Sandbar Mexican Grill. All three locations will be offering "Hola, Green-Go" specials like corned beef and cabbage tacos ($10), green Shamrock-aritas ($5), green beer ($3), and Green-schläger shots ($5). The all-day celebration will include live music provided by local bands and DJs.
