Other Budget-Friendly Ways to Celebrate St. Patty’s

Learn about Irish culture: Understand the significance of the shamrock and other interesting Irish facts this year by taking a moment to do a bit of research behind some St. Patrick’s Day traditions.
Make your own take on the corned beef plate: Maybe cabbage isn’t your thing. Try a new version of corned beef instead. Our favorite way to make it? Corned beef brisket on the Trager grill, of course.
Play a St. Patrick’s-themed game: Test your friends’ beer knowledge with a tasting game! Purchase a variety of different beers and print out these label covers to hide the brand name. Try to get canned beers so that the color of the drink doesn’t give any hints! See who can accurately guess each beer and see who gets lucked up the quickest.
Practice your Irish slang: Watch this YouTube video to learn some Irish slang from Niall Horan. It’s not every day you can learn the meaning and how to properly pronounce words like “hape” and “bajanxed” from an Irish pop star.
Watch “Brave” on Disney+: Sit down with your little one and watch the story of Princess Merida of DunBroch with your little one. You will see that the only thing more fiery than Princess Merida’s hair is her personality. You can stream “Brave” from your TV or smartphone on Disney+.
