Readers' Choice: St. Patrick's Day in Fairfield

Vote for your favorite Fairfield spot to go on St. Patrick's Day, and tell us why you love it.

Saturday marks St. Patrick’s Day 2012, and many of us will celebrate by heading to parades, catching up with friends, enjoying Irish music and dancing and celebrating with our neighbors through church-organized and other community events.

Those of us planning to head out likely have our “go-to” spots, so for this week’s Fairfield Patch Readers’ Choice contest we’re asking for your recommendations:

What’s your favorite place to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day?

What makes it special? Why do you enjoy it?

As with each Readers’ Choice contest, Patch will factor in a combination of poll votes, comments and most importantly, ratings and reviews in the Patch Places directory, in determining winners.

Below you’ll find a starter list that we’re asking you to help us to flesh out -- as well as a poll whose choices we’ll update as we get feedback from you. 

Please which places are missing from the list and why they're the best -- we'll add them to the poll and create a new Patch Places listing for them. If you own or operate an establishment of any kind that doesn't appear as a Patch Places listing on Fairfield Patch, email me at caitlin.mazzola@patch.com. If you do see your business listed and want to , by all means go for it and let me know if you have any questions (also consider !)

Before we get to our list and poll, just a note that here in Fairfield County we have five large parades -- in Bridgeport, Danbury, Greenwich, Milford and Stamford -- and here are some details about those parades:

  • Bridgeport: 12 p.m. Friday, parade starts on Broad Street
