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.
