March 16, 2022 – With St. Patrick’s Day arriving tomorrow (March 17), we’ve assembled a short-list of beloved locales for holiday-inspired dishes, libations and events. From a 21 Day Dry Aged Burger topped with Irish Cheddar and Irish Back Bacon, to a cocktail class with everyone’s favorite Irish stout, Guinness, Urban Farmer, Art in the Age, Patchwork, Red Owl Tavern, The Twisted Tail and The Dutch are pulling out all the stops.

This St. Patrick’s Day (March 17), Urban Farmer, the rural-chic farm-to-table mainstay located in historic Logan Square, is serving up a very special 21 Day Dry Aged Burger, comprised of ingredients guaranteed to make even the most seasoned foodies salivate; ringing in at $22, this burger is built with Irish cheddar, Irish back bacon, onions caramelized in nitro stout, a fried egg and stone ground mustard, enveloped in a brioche bun and served with a side of pickled cabbage. To quench thirst, Urban Farmer’s lead bartender Daniel Watson will be delivering a refreshing Jameson-based cocktail, cheekily named Mother’s Little Helper, garnished gracefully with a blackberry wrapped in a mint leaf, priced at $13. For those with a more Philadelphian sensibility, the bar will also offer a $15Citywide special – a pint of O’Hara’s Irish Stout accompanied by a shot of Bushmills Original Irish Whiskey.

Red Owl Tavern, the modern American restaurant and bar situated across from historic Independence Hall, is coming in hot with two signature cocktails in honor of St. Patrick. The Dublin Old Fashioned features the very special Jameson Stout Finished Irish Whiskey, a whiskey aged in craft beer-seasoned barrels with a mild taste of hops and cocoa beans, bolstered by Guinness Demerara Syrup, bitters, and garnished with an orange twist. For fans of clear spirits and refreshing flavors, The Clover Club calls on raspberry-infused gin, mint syrup, lemon juice, egg white, dry vermouth, and Peychaud’s bitters to deliver a pleasant contrast to the otherwise whiskey-forward approaches to St. Paddy’s.

The Twisted Tail, a stylish Southern-inspired contemporary American restaurant, bar and live music venue in the heart of Philadelphia’s Headhouse Square district, is taking a slightly different approach to St. Patrick’s. In lieu of focusing directly on Irish whiskey, The Twisted Tail is spotlighting an Irish whiskey barrel-aged beer. Hailing from Carrig Brewing Co, based in Leitrim, Ireland, Cael and Crede is an amber ale that is distinctly Irish, its unforgettable flavor derived from its aging in genuine Irish Whiskey oak barrels. Using locally sourced Irish malts and the purest water from the river Shannon, Cael and Crede’s remarkable taste boasts rich toffee with a creamy oak and dry whiskey finish. Cael and Crede
