Slainte! Cheers!

As Karen Brem, the ever-enthusiastic Marketing Director for the Historic Mardi Gras Inn, I’m absolutely thrilled to invite you to dive into the emerald heart of New Orleans for a day that promises to paint the town green! This year, on the radiant morning of Saturday, March 16, 2024, the historic streets of our beloved city will buzz with anticipation for the much-awaited Parasol’s St. Patrick’s Day Block Party. Picture this: a jubilant congregation of merry-makers, a cascade of green beer, an ensemble of toe-tapping tunes, and a feast fit for the most discerning of leprechauns, all nestled at 2533 Constance St., where the corners of Third St. and Constance St. meet in a perfect symphony of festivity.

As dawn breaks at 10:00 AM, the quaint and vibrant neighborhood around Parasol’s will transform into a grand stage for revelry that echoes the joyous spirit of the Emerald Isle. Imagine a day where everyone, regardless of their lineage, is Irish at heart, coming together in a celebration that transcends borders and unites us in shared merriment. The festivities, lasting until the golden hour of 8:00 PM, promise a tapestry of experiences woven with the threads of music, laughter, and camaraderie.

For those seeking the ultimate prelude to the Irish Channel Parade, which commences its vibrant procession at 1:00 PM, there’s no better haven than Parasol’s. It’s the quintessential spot to get swept up in the Gaelic spirit, fueling your enthusiasm with an infectious energy that only builds as the parade unfurls its colorful pageantry. And fret not, for the celebration doesn’t ebb with the parade’s last float; Parasol’s ensures the party beats on, inviting one and all to linger in the joyous afterglow.

Now, let me let you in on a little secret, one that’s whispered with a twinkle in the eye by those in the know. Begin your day with a whimsical breakfast of Lucky Charms, donning your most flamboyant green attire as if the very essence of Ireland beckoned from your wardrobe. Then, make your way to The Irish Channel, where the heart of the celebration pulses with an irresistible rhythm, drawing you into the fold of Parasol’s enchanting embrace.
