San Diego County restaurants

They say everybody’s Irish on St. Patrick’s Day. Many restaurants and bars claim the same about their March 17 fare, but some are more Irish than others. San Diego County has its fair share of Irish eateries and pubs. While we can’t vouch for the authenticity of the food and drink they serve, we tracked down a sampling of those that offer “green” experiences. Decide for yourself it it’s the real deal or just a bunch of malarkey.

The Field: This turn-of-the-20th-century Irish country pub was shipped literally piece by piece from Ireland and relocated in the historic Gaslamp Quarter. Most popular with patrons: Draught Guinness beer, Irish coffee, shepherd’s pie, fish and chips, full traditional Irish breakfast. Check their website and Facebook page for St. Patrick’s Day specials.

The theme of this year’s parade is “Celebrating Faith and Freedom.” After the procession, head over to Balboa Park for live entertainment on two stages. There’ll be Irish Step Dancers, Irish folksingers, craft booths, food booths, a beer garden, and a kids’ zone with rides.

San Diego events

What:
After the tragic passing of high school athlete and scholar Chelsea King while she was out on a training run in 2010, the San Diego running community decided to honor her memory and finish her run for her. Turnout was so high that her parents decided to repeat the event each year to help spread the word about “Chelsea’s Law” and commemorate their daughter’s legacy.

Now her memory is celebrated each year as the Finish Chelsea’s Run 5k Run/Walk, a charity event that benefits the Chelsea’s Light Foundation Sunflower Scholarship Fund. The fund helps provide scholarships for college-bound teens throughout San Diego that embody Chelsea’s dual focuses of academic and athletic devotions. To date, this fundraising drive has provided over $85,000 in scholarships to deserving students around the county.
