You can get all of your family and friends together for a great party and hearty meal for the cost of a few decorations. Hosting a St. Patrick’s Day pot luck is nearly free.

On St. Patrick’s Day, many Irish bars and pubs celebrate the holiday by lowering their prices and showcasing drink specials. If you’re looking to celebrate on March 17th with some green beer, check out the locations with deals around you. If you go with all of your friends, you can probably even score a bigger discount on a pitcher.

Watch the River Dyeing
