Rumor has it that St. Patrick died on March 17 one year in the fifth century and, as usual, we shall commemorate his death with green beer, pinches and kitschy T-shirts (obviously). Whether you got your drunken rowdiness out at the 42nd Annual Dallas Mavericks St. Patrick’s Parade last Saturday and are looking for a new way to celebrate, or your mischief has yet to begin, we found the best North Texas events to celebrate the green holiday with live music, dancing and more.
