Going Green: St. Patrick’s Day in Costa Mesa

Posted on March 15, 2013 | 11:03am

Each year the feast of St. Patrick, or St. Patrick’s Day, is celebrated on March 17.  Although the day celebrates Irish culture and history, the first St. Patrick’s Day celebration did not occur in Ireland, but rather in Boston in 1737.  The color green is was not always associated with St. Patrick’s Day, originally blue was the color of the holiday, but was replaced with green in the 19th century.

Today, St. Patrick’s Day has become synonymous with the color green, images of shamrocks, leprechauns, corned beef and hash, whiskey and of course – beer.  If a visit to the Emerald Island isn’t in your travel plans this weekend, there are many great places and events to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Costa Mesa.

Indie bands Sea Wolf and The Donnies The Amys played to a full house in Founders Hall at Segerstrom Center for the Arts last night for the Off Center Festival.

The festival features comedy, dance and theater, however, last night’s performance was dedicated to fans of live music.  Audience members were treated to a night of talented musicians performing in an intimate venue.  For those who have not seen a show in Founders Hall, visit the SCFTA website and get tickets, because the theater is a great venue for any performance.  Although it seems more fitting for a night of improv acting, Founders Hall was perfectly suited to host the folk rockers.
