Let’s go nuts for St. Patrick’s Day! Tomorrow is the 26th annual Rocky Mountain Oyster Fry and we couldn’t be more excited to get outside and enjoy some fresh air and Rocky Mountain Oysters with you.

Dress in your greenest garb and get there early to be first to try all the balls – sampling starts at 10 a.m. Take a break at noon to watch the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Then wash down those nutty bites with the Ball Breaker Saloon Crawl, happening from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.

See you on C  Street!
