Sacramento St. Patrick's 2012: Let the Session Begin!

After three successful St. Patrick’s Day events, it’s become apparent that de Vere’s Irish Pub has outgrown a one-day celebration. So this year, we’re dedicating an entire week to our favorite holiday! From Sunday, March 11th to Sunday, March 18th, we will be hosting eight unique and authentic events, all of which will be free to the public. To boot, we will be offering exclusive food and drink specials throughout the week.


Being the only Irish-owned and Irish-run pub in town, we want to make sure we give everyone in the community an opportunity to celebrate St. Patrick’s and experience our pub in their own way. This year, you can be mellow throughout the week with traditional fare and a pint or join the madhouse on St. Patrick's Day for a truly festive time. Let the session begin!




Sunday, March 11 – Shamrockin’ Sunday

Whether you were a runner or just a spectator at the Shamrock’n Half Marathon (we won’t judge!), come recover and carbo load at the pub.  We’ll be serving up a full brunch, compete with our Almost Famous Irish Coffees, bottomless champagne bottle service, and Bloody Mary’s to help you wind down and loosen up those muscles. We’ll even have lemon-lime Gatorade to help you refuel, festively!


Monday, March 12 – St. Baldrick’s Day

How much money would it take for you to shave your head? What if all that money went to making a difference in the lives of children battling cancer? That’s what St. Baldrick’s Day is all about—going bald for a good cause. Come shave your head—and collect donations for doing so—or watch others get buzzed bald. We have partnered with the Keating Raphael Memorial to host another successful St. Baldrick’s event. All money raised will benefit the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.

Tuesday, March 13 – T-Shirt Tuesday

Come grab a beer and get your St. Pat’s gear! Pre-order their St. Patrick’s 2012 t-shirts (custom designed by de Vere’s) between now and March 13. Then come pick it up and have a pre-St. Pat’s pint at the pub! Order your t-shirt in advance so you won’t be caught without your green!

Wednesday, March 14 – Whiskey Wednesday

By now you’ve probably heard we have the biggest whiskey offering in town, so why not come take advantage of it? On the fourth day of St. Pat’s week, join our in-house experts and ambassadors from various whiskey labels for whiskey tastings, education, and cocktails featuring our favorite spirit.  From 6pm-8pm, you’ll be able to bounce around multiple tasting stations while expanding your palate and taking advantage of 50% off Whiskey Society memberships if you so choose.  Enjoy 2 tastes for $5 and 5 tastes for $10.



Thursday, March 15 – TraDISHional Thursday

To continue our week of specials, we are hosting a night of beyond-the-norm pub fare.  Bring your friends and family to enjoy this one-night-only menu, which will include authentic Irish favorites such as corned beef and cabbage and traditional lamb stew.  Plus, if you order a 20-oz pint of Guinness, you’ll get your own pint glass to take home! (One per person.)



Friday, March 16 – Kings Fan Friday

In true St. Patrick’s spirit, the Sacramento Kings are playing the Boston Celtics at the Power Balance Pavilion, and we’re offering discounted tickets to the game.  We’ll also have a tent outside the Kings Store where you can pick up your exclusive pre-ordered St. Patrick’s Day 2012 t-shirt.  A portion of all ticket and t-shirt proceeds will benefit the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.  You can order your special priced tickets at:



Saturday, March 17 – St. Patrick’s Day Pub Party

The big day is finally here!  Doors will open at 8am and the Ireland vs. England rugby game starts airing live at 10am!  There is truly no better place to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day than at de Vere’s, the only Irish-owned and Irish-run pub in Sacramento.  Plus, there’s no cover! Come celebrate in true Irish fashion--and don't forget your green!



Sunday, March 18 – Family Sunday

St. Patrick’s Day might be over, but that doesn’t mean the festivities have stopped! Whether you overdid it on Saturday and need a place to recover, or you stayed in to avoid amateur hour, come join us for a family friendly brunch featuring good food, live music, and more.
