How Can You Extend Your St. Patrick’s Day Celebration? Bag Day of Course!

Laughing Man in St. Patrick's Day Parade

Looking for a way to keep the St. Patrick’s Day party flowing past Friday? You’ll want to listen up!

Welcome to Bag Day! What is Bag Day, you ask? Essentially it means that you can drink and toast the patron saint of Ireland the day after St. Patrick’s Day. In fact, it all started about a quarter of a century ago at The Irish Pub in Atlantic City!

There is one stipulation though, according to – you have to wear a bag on your head.

As I mentioned above, this tradition got its start at the legendary Irish Pub located on St. James Place in Atlantic City. It began as a way for people who had to work on March 17th to participate in the St. Patrick’s Day festivities. Like the day before, Bag Day commences bright and early at 7 AM!

Be sure to wear your green, and don’t worry if you don’t have a bag, they’ll have an extra one for you at the Irish Pub!
