Saturday, March 6
“Cheerleaders and Beer Leaders”
McFadden’s invites all gorgeous gals to show off their team spirit and short skirts with “Cheerleaders and Beer Leaders.” After the crowd throws back a few pints, McFadden’s will hold a contest for the sexiest cheerleader outfit and the lucky lady with the best pom-poms will take home $100. There will be no shortage of libations with $3 Coors Light drafts and $5 you-call-it bomb shots available all night long. For those looking to get the most out of their Saturday night, McFadden’s will have an open bar from 11 p.m. until 1 a.m. with the purchase of a wristband, priced at $10 for ladies and $20 for guys.

McFadden’s Annual “St. Practice Day”
McFadden’s will host its annual “St. Practice Day” on Saturday, March 13; because one day a year isn’t quite enough for the wild Irish bar to celebrate its favorite holiday. The party kicks off at 11 a.m. with a tasty Irish breakfast complete with thick bacon, eggs, traditional Irish soda bread and juicy sausage, available throughout the day for $10. $4 green beers and $5 Irish Car Bombs will be the perfect celebratory drink for McFadden’s revelers, and from 11 p.m. until 1 a.m. the Irish hot spot will have an open bar special with the purchase of a wristband, priced at $10 for ladies and $20 for gentlemen. To complete this warm-up for the big day, McFadden’s will feature the cool sounds of Desert Skyy Pipe Band throughout the day, entertainment from Lucky, McFadden’s very own leprechaun, performances by Irish dancers and live music from local Irish band Celtic Rockers from 9 p.m. until midnight. One lucky partygoer will also walk away with an amazing prize package from Gibson Guitar.

Sunday, March 14
“Bloody Sunday”
McFadden’s will continue its St. Patrick’s Day celebration with “Bloody Sunday,” a spin-off of the classic U2 tune. “Bloody Sunday” will start bright and early with the perfect wake-up call of McFadden’s traditional Irish breakfast for only $10 to perk up those who may have practiced a bit too hard the night before. McFadden’s “Bloody Sunday” bash would not be complete without $4 green beers, Guinness drafts and Jameson cocktails, plus McFadden’s will throw in 25-ounce mugs of any draft beer for only $10 all day long. Revelers that last into the night will be treated to a special performance by Vegas U2 from 9 p.m. until midnight.

“Celtic Monday”
McFadden’s patrons will show their mighty Irish pride on “Celtic Monday,” day three of McFadden’s five-day St. Patty’s celebration. $4 green beers, Guinness drafts and Jameson cocktails will be standard throughout the day, but on “Celtic Monday” the drink prices will start to get lower as the night gets later with reverse happy hour drink specials. Starting with $4 drinks at 9 p.m., McFadden’s will lower the price of well cocktails and draft beers to $3 at 10 p.m., $2 at 11 p.m. and $1 drinks from midnight until close. As the sun goes down live music by Finnegan’s Wake will entertain the crowd from 9 p.m. until midnight, with Lucky the leprechaun on-hand for some Irish fun.

“Lift Up Your Kilt Karaoke”
As if the first three days were not enough, day four of McFadden’s St. Patrick’s Day bash comes complete with more booze, more leprechauns and a hefty dose of public embarrassment. McFadden’s “Lift Up Your Kilt Karaoke” event invites revelers to show-off their vocal prowess and treat the crowd to a lyrical delight. All karaoke participants that take the stage will be rewarded a complimentary drink for their participation and/or humiliation. For those not willing to hit the stage, McFadden’s will have $4 green beers, Guinness drafts and Jameson cocktails available all night long, along with $10 pitchers of draft beer and $3 Tecate bottles. All Las Vegas locals will be treated to $2 well cocktails and domestic drafts with local ID. Following the intense karaoke competition, Darby O’Gill will hit the stage for a rockin’ Irish set from 9 p.m. until midnight.

St. Patrick’s Day
After four days straight of grueling training and countless beer bongs, McFadden’s will launch St. Patrick’s Day at 7 a.m. with an all-you-can-eat and drink special until 11 a.m., priced at $20. McFadden’s St. Patrick’s Day bash will showcase all things Irish with live music from Desert Skyy Pipe Band all day long, a performance by Acoustic Soul from 2 until 6 p.m., leprechauns lurking around every corner, talented Irish dancers and more. Green beers can be purchased throughout the day for $4 and the cover charge on St. Patrick’s Day will be priced at $10, which includes a free yard glass filled to the brim with tasty green beer. McFadden’s will hold its annual “Make Your Own Green Bikini Contest” with the lucky lady that creates the best homemade green bikini, using anything from Astroturf to lettuce, taking home $1,000 cash. A new addition to McFadden’s St. Patrick’s Day lineup, the “Last Man Standing Blarney Stone Contest,” will put 10 contestants to the test as they are required to keep one hand on McFadden’s blarney stone for as long as they can last. The last man standing with his or her hand on the blarney stone will win McFadden’s special grand prize.
