St. Patrick’s Day is on Tuesday this year, which kind of presents a problem from a celebration perspective considering that the work week still has three days to run. At Prairie Dog it will be an even bigger challenge as we’ll be doing production on our March 19 issue that day.

Still, for those who are intent on celebrating here’s some Celtic-themed entertainment options to consider:

Tuesday 17
