A St. Patrick’s Day parade and a special Tuesday museum deal (Mar. 17 and anytime)

March 15, 2009

irishTuesday (March 17) promises to be a fabulous day for the Hibernians’ St. Patrick’s Day parade down Tamm Avenue in Dogtown … so fabulous that there’s sure to be a crush of happy Irish and Irish-for-a-day folks! The Webster-Kirkwood Times had a nice little article on it and yesterday’s downtown parade, including quite a few good tips on attending each.

If you’re looking for a quieter way to spend the day, head over to Forest Park. The kids can play in the playground next to the Lindell Pavilion (technically it’s the Dennis and Judith Jones Variety Wonderland, but no one ever calls it that). Then you can head over to the Missouri History Museum, where the special exhibits are now free on Tuesdays to St. Louis City and County residents. Currently, that means you can see Katherine Dunham: Beyond the Dance” and “Missouri Botanical Garden: Green for 150 years, 1859-2009.”

Actually, if you’re up for it, you could do the parade AND the museum; the parade’s at noon, and the museum’s open until 8 p.m. I’d need some serious green beer, and the luck ‘o the Irish on S.’s naptime, to manage that, but you never know!
