St. Patrick’s Day Parade Information

Posted in Uncategorized on March 16, 2012 by RattleNHumBar

Looking for information on the St. Patrick’s Day parade?

When does the St. Patrick’s Day Parade begin?

The parade begins at 10:45 a.m., and it continues until the last marcher finishes, some time around 3:00 – 4:00 pm.

What is the St. Patrick’s Day route?

It begins near 44th St., on Fifth Avenue, and continues straight up to 79th St.

What is the weather for St. Patrick’s Day in NYC?

Current forecast is for a high of 62, partly cloudy, little wind, small chance of precipitation.

Where is the best place to watch the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in NYC?

The best area is near the beginning of the parade route, in the mid-40s on Fifth Avenue. This is before the crowds get too thick, in the 50s, but not as far uptown as you’d otherwise have to go.

Where is the best place for Brunch on St. Patrick’s Day in NYC?

Rattle N Hum has the best St. Patrick’s Day Brunch. It opens at 8:00 am on St. Patrick’s Day and will be serving Irish breakfast, and other Irish food specials all day long. Once you’ve had your morning meal with us, it’s a mere 10 minute walk to the beginning of the parade route.

What is the best place for lunch on St. Patrick’s Day in NYC?

You need to avoid the places in the area around the parade, as they are all insanely packed, and many raise their prices just for the day. You want to find a place that’s a reasonable walk, with terrific hospitality, fabulous food, and, this being St. Patrick’s Day, the best Irish beer in NYC. That would be…. Rattle N Hum.

What is the best place for dinner on St. Patrick’s Day in NYC?

Ditto.

Where is the best place to drink on St. Patrick’s Day in NYC?

Need you ask? Rattle N Hum has 40 taps of beer that we constantly rotate, 4 casks, and more than 100 beers in bottles. Thanks for the softball on this one.

Who is St. Patrick? Why does he have a day and a parade named after him?

Patrick was born in Great Britain in the late fourth century. When he was 16, he was captured by Irish raiders and taken to Ireland, where he worked as a shepherd and drew close to God. “I used to pasture the flock each day and I used to pray many times a day,” he wrote. “More and more did the love of God, and my fear of him and faith increase.”

After six years in Ireland, he escaped. He was reunited with his family, but a dream urged him to return to Ireland. Patrick spent the ensuing years training to be a priest. He returned to Ireland around 432 A.D. to begin preaching Christianity to the predominantly pagan population.  He played a significant role in converting the majority of Ireland’s population.

The first St. Patrick’s Day Parade in the US was held in Boston in 1737. In NYC, they’ve only been holding them since 1762.
