"When we drink, we get drunk. When we get drunk, we fall asleep. When we fall asleep, we commit no sin. When we commit no sin, we go to Heaven. So, let's all get drunk and go to heaven."

St. Paddy’s is one of my favorite holidays. It’s the only holiday that’s meant to be one big party where you drink whiskey and beer with your favorite people. Not to mention San Francisco has some of the best St. Paddy’s Day parties (and so much spirit!). If you’re in the Castro District, or you’re looking for a little LGBT St. Patrick’s Day fun, read on for our list of great St. Paddy’s Day events in the Castro.
