This isn’t your rabbit-out-of-hat routine – it’s an impossible adventure.

Irish Eats

March 16-17

Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at Wildebeest, where chefs are serving up limited-edition food and drinks like rashers and eggs, fish and chips, and boilermakers (a pint of beer with a shot of whisky, of course). They’ll also have Guinness doughnuts, which we can only assume are like the cooler, hardened brother of regular doughnuts. Can you get tipsy from beer-infused confections? There’s only one way to find out.

When: Saturday, March 16 and Sunday, March 17
Where: Wildebeest
