This year, Flying Saucer in Addison will mark St. Paddy's Day with a tap takeover from Green Flash Brewing Co. It's called Green Flash because, like a Timothy Leary grad student participating in psilocybin experiments, one may experience certain colorful delusions after a beer or two. Just kidding. This is regular ol' delusion-free craft beer, folks. Five new Green Flash libations will be released in addition to the Saucer's $3 Irish beer specials all day.

The tour will then disperse to area chocolate shops including Kate Weiser Chocolate and Dude, Sweet Chocolate.

Ever since the mid-1600s, when the Irish Catholic Confederation adopted the green harp flag, Ireland has been associated with the color green. Fast forward to modern, culturally appropriating America, where people, regardless of national heritage, don green bikinis and clover-shaped sunglasses and get hammered on green beer. This weekend, Henderson Tap House is the place to take your suddenly verdant self. On Friday there will be a green bikini contest and on Saturday doors open at 7 a.m. for the Kegs & Eggs breakfast. The breakfast will feature blood alcohol level-easing entrées like green eggs and ham, and corned beef and cabbage. The breakfast includes an entrée, bloody marys and mimosas for $40 per person.
