Destination Downtown: St. Patrick’s Day

If you’re searching for fun ways to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day all weekend, the search is over! This weekend will be full of specials, live music, quality food, and great times in #DTMac.

Start your weekend of celebrating St. Patrick by participating in Macon Tennis Association’s fundraiser for their Net Therapy program. This program currently benefits kids with autism, local veterans, and active military with the physical, mental and social well-being that playing tennis offers. In the future, they hope this program will grow to benefit more underserved communities, and your participation in the fundraiser on Saturday can help! Register here to participate, grab your rackets and donations, and meet at the Tatnall Square Park Tennis Center at 2:00 for this round-robin style tennis tournament!

After playing tennis, you will probably be ready to relax and hear some tunes, so head over to Bearfoot Tavern! They will have live music starting at 2:30 on Saturday that will go until around midnight. Don’t worry, the festivities don’t end on Saturday! They will have a band on Sunday from 1:00 – 3:00 in addition to food and drink specials all weekend. Speaking of drinks, Reboot Retrocade & Bar will be doing $1 off Jameson, Car Bombs, Irish Coffee, and Guinness on the 16th and 17th.
