Its a Great Place for the Irish - Punta Gorda's St. Pat's Day Weekend

It doesn't take a St. Patrick's Day for Punta Gorda to celebrate, but given it is St. Pat's Weekend, the City is a great place to enjoy Irish sounds and eat some Corned Beef or other Irish chow (if you like the stuff), or just down a Guiness or two.  Of course, the Ray will be celebrating all weekend and open all day with music on the 17th.... but lots of our local establishments will also be having St. Pat's fests.  Great weekend or day for a crawl.   Here's some ideas for your Punta Gorda St. Pat's:
