St. Patty's at P.J. Clarke's

Christening their new 50-seat outdoor patio, the downtown newcomers're transplanting their annual NYC party to DC, throwing a bash with discounted Guinness drafts and Jameson shots, the Skinettes on hand to dance around an Irish pipe and drum band, and the giveaway of a 2011 Ural T Sidecar Motorcycle; plus, they'll be serving up traditional Irish fare like corned beef & cabbage, and a beef stew made from a recipe they describe as "Guinness-fueled", which is also the reason for Ireland's meager contributions to space exploration.
