Get ready for a lucky couple of days this weekend (if not, there's always Guinness), for March 17 is St Patrick's Day. Dig out your green clothing and kick back a few at any of these celebrations:

Irish Ball
Booking is advised for this popular Irish-inspired black tie event. Come dressed in your best and turn heads all evening. Reserve tickets via e-mail to gain an early spot. Sponsorship packages are also available. Single ticket, RMB 1,100, table of ten RMB 10,000. Kerry Hotel Beijing

Irish I Were Drunk at The Brick
It's that time of the year where everybody becomes Irish. From Sun-Mon knock down a few green beers (RMB 10-25) or jump right into it with some Irish Car Bomb shots (RMB 40). Sunday, they host the hilariously fun bag toss game, Corn Hole, all day. The Brick

St Patrick's Day at 4corners
With a special live performance by the Beijing Dead and drink deals on all Irish beer, whiskey, and any other drink hailing from the region, you can expect the night to be filled with Irish charms. Come dressed in green to receive a lucky treat. 4corners

St Patrick @ Paddy O'Shea's
This Irish bar celebrates for four days with a live Celtic and Irish Band (Friday and Sunday), a France v. Ireland final rugby round on Saturday, and a special guest on Sunday before the official holiday begins. Paddy O'Shea's

St Patrick's Day at Slow Boat Brewery
On Saturday, don yourself head-to-toe in green to receive a free pitcher of beer, or throw down an Irish accent every time you order their special St Paddy's Stout to get it for RMB 30. With plenty of Jameson, sneaky Irish Car Bombs, and the swell of Irish music, you'll be forgiven for thinking you're actually in Dublin. Slow Boat Brewery Taproom

St Patrick's Day with Blackwater + DJ CAD 73 Soul Session
May the luck of the Irish grace you as you hunt for the hidden four leaf shamrocks amongst the party revelers. Drink, dance, and sing along at the greenest party of the year. Modernista
