Craving something special for St. Patrick’s Day? Midland has plenty of possibilities! Here are a few guaranteed to get those Irish (and Irish-for-the-day) eyes smiling:


  • Patrick’s Day Celebration at the Beer Garden (7112 W. Highway 80)

Already offering the largest selection of draft craft beer, ciders, and wine in Midland, this family-owned establishment keeps the green beer flowing all day on March 17. Complement with a cheeseburger, green chili chicken tacos, or some hand-cut fries.

  • Little Woodrow’s Midland (3415 North Loop 250, Building 1)

A favorite local watering hole year-round, St. Patrick’s Day features Guinness draft, Baby Guinness shots, and Irish Flags (layers of crème de menthe, Irish cream, and Grand Marnier). And with March Madness starting the very same day, it’s a perfect spot to catch a few basketball games, too.

Corned Beef:

  • Murray’s Deli (3211 W. Wadley Avenue)

You can’t go wrong with the Rueben sandwich from this establishment that’s been a Midland favorite since 1984. Add a cup of tomato basil soup and some onion rings – two house specialties – for a memorable meal.

  • Jason’s Deli (4610 N. Garfield Street)

Another great spot for corned beef is this place honored by Parents magazine as the best family restaurant in America. Fare here focuses on wholesomeness – fresh ingredients, MSG-free, no high-fructose corn syrup, and no artificial colors or dyes. Try a bowl of Irish potato soup as the perfect accompaniment for the holiday.


Finally, don’t forget to indulge in some limited-time-only green delights. Your kids will love the bright and tasty Blizzard of the Month – Mint Oreo – at your local Dairy Queen (and you’ll love the deal – buy one get one for 80 cents through March 15). Or stop by McDonald’s for the classic Shamrock Shake, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary!
