Where's the Best St. Patrick's Day Celebration?

Contest closed at 9 a.m.! Watch for the winner at noon. This week's Readers' Choice Award goes to the best place in Napa to celebrate St. Patrick's Day.

How will you be celebrating St. Patrick's Day this Saturday?

We can't all visit the old sod (Ireland) where Napa County health education specialist Cara Mae McGarry was traveling this week.

Fortunately, Napa offers a panorama of St. Patrick's Day festivities, from corned-beef dinners to concerts. Not all fall on the 17th, so you can spread your celebration out over two or three days if you like.

To help proclaim your favorite in this week's contest, there's more involved than just voting in the poll: The winner will be decided by a mixed tally of votes, positive comments and positive ratings on the business listings linked below.

If you own or manage one of the businesses in our contest, please be sure to "Claim" your listing! This allows you to customize the information that appears on our site, and to respond to users' reviews.

Here are the nominees for this week's Reader's Choice Award for best St. Patrick's Day celebration (as always, if we've missed something, please tell us in the comments and we'll add it ASAP):

Because this poll is not scientific, it is not the sole consideration in choosing a winner. The winner will be determined by the Patch editor, based on poll results and reviews on Patch Places. Please vote only once per survey, per Patch.        

We'll close the contest Friday at 9 a.m. and announce the winner at noon. Erin go bragh!

Suppertime is the place to be on St Patricks Day, good food, family and fun.

This really is turning into an Irish horse race and I have a feeling it will be down to the wire on Friday morning when we close the contest. Meanwhile, this event isn't part of the contest but I saw it on Facebook and wanted to pass it on for those of you who will be out and about in Napa on St. Pat's Day: Napa High Choir: We leave for Spain in just 11 days! You can help us get there by coming to our spring Parking Lot Sale this Saturday, March 17 from 9am-1pm. Napa High School's lot on Jefferson Street will be filled with smiling students and great buys ~ anyone need a sleigh? (Check the weather before you head out; in case of rain, the sale will be rescheduled to April 7th).

Who can pass up the opportunity to eat all natural in house made corned beef from Five Dot Ranch. Even if you want to celebrate later in the evening it is still worth it to eat first at Five Dot Ranch at the Oxbow Market........ Corned Beef, braised cabbage, carrots and fingerling potatoes. See you there.

No mention of the biggest party in town????? Hands down, no question it is Downtown Joe's. Every year it grows and is SRO! This year the parking lot will be closed off and there will be a main stage outside, as well as inside! If you enjoy Celtic crooning, sing/alongside and Hibernian humor, join the Old Shenachie 5 pm outside, 7 pm inside!
