Once a mainly religious holiday, the modern St. Patrick's Day has evolved into one of the most widely celebrated celebrated saints days in the world, albeit in a largely secular manner, according to wikipedia's authors. History.com notes there are nearly 7 million people in the U.S. with Irish roots.
We here at East Greenwich Patch want to know: What's your favorite EG spot to celebrate St. Patrick's Day? Is it a cozy bar with green beverages, a restaurant that cooks their annual corned beef dinner just right, or a place that gets a little bit wild?
Vote in our poll below, then share your thoughts in the comments section. If we left your favorite spot off the list, note that in the comments as well.
We'll leave the poll up all week then close voting at 9 a.m. Friday. At noon that day, we'll share your top local pick. Then be sure to watch the site over the weekend when we tally up the top votes and announce the place that got the most rave reviews across all of our Rhode Island sites.
Because this poll is not scientific, it is not the sole consideration in choosing a winner. The winner will be determined by the Patch editor, based on poll results and reviews on Patch Places. Please vote only once per survey, per Patch.
