St. Patrick’s Day celebrating kicks off this weekend on Kaua‘i, and the island’s organizations, eateries and residents are brushing off their green gear, perfecting that green beer and making a deal or two with the leprechauns for an appearance at one of the many events going on island-wide. From Pot of Gold parties to traditional Irish Feasts, there’s something for everyone looking to celebrate all the way through Tuesday, March 17.
