Okay, we might not go as hard on St. Patrick’s Day in Miami as some other cities—could you imagine a neon green-dyed Biscayne Bay, or bagpipers roaming 90-degree Wynwood in tartan kilts? Still, it's a time when the city overflows with beer specials and copious shots of free whiskey from the best Miami bars, and nearly every Miami brewery throws a big green party. We know the best places in South Florida to find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, from corned beef to green beer and live music. Here's where to party on St. Patrick's Day in Miami.

This year, they've teamed up with the Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce and Irish Consulate to host the 30th annual St. Patrick’s Day Street Festival along Miracle Mile and Salzedo. Nosh on Irish food and drinks (including plenty of Guinness and beer) while partaking in festive games and live music. RSVP to the free event to score a complimentary shot glass bead necklace. 4pm

Event pros SWARM return to the Wynwood Marketplace this year for a Tullamore Dew-presented St. Pat’s block party with food trucks, green beer, live music, shopping, and “Instagrammable photo opps”—AKA, you in your best green outfit drinking something that totally matches. Pro tip: RSVP and get a free beer when the doors open at 4pm.

A $20 ticket gets you a couple of free drinks and two days of specials at six Wynwood bars during this two-day Wynwood bar crawl. You'll breeze by cover charges at the participating spots, which likely include some of your favorites, like Veza Sur, SHOTS, Le Chick and Wynwood Brewing Co. Best of all, get a group of four together and save $30 on your tickets. March 17, 18 at 4pm

Do you know how you’ve been saying you wanted a reason to get back on the Brightline? Here’s the plan: Take the early train up to West Palm Beach on St. Patrick’s Day and hit the 9am start of the all-day festival put on by dive-bar-beautiful O’Shea’s, which includes a band from the Old Country, Irish dancers and enough Guinness to make the trip back become a literal blur. Festivities go 'til 4am, so don't forget to pace yourself.

Tickets to this Wynwood club crawl are the steepest of the bunch, starting at $40 for early-bird general admission. But if channeling your best Irish side means boozing and dancing 'til the wee hours, the Charmed crawl might be your best bet. Participating clubs on the route include Racket (noon to 3pm), Centro (3 to 6pm) and Electric Lady (6 to 10pm), but don your wristband early for access to crawl pre-parties (locations TBD) in the days leading up to the main event. March 18 at noon
