We have recieved numerous emails asking what to do after the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. As you may know, Market Square is under construction (check out these articles on the impact of the construction on the Market Square businesses – Post-Gazette 2/5/2010 and Tribune Review 2/26/2010). We are very sad to see another local business close and there are many Pittsburghers who are sad about the lack of a place to celebrate after the parade.
Because of ongoing construction, the typical outdoor celebration with open containers in Market Square will not take place.Market Square restaurants will be open with beer specials, like The Original Oyster House, Primanti Brothers, Fat Tommy’s, Moe’s Southwest Grill and Las Velas Mexican Restaurant, which is going Irish for the day with breakfast burritos, Irish tacos and burritos and green margaritas.

Open containers of alcohol are not permitted along the parade route. Pittsburgh police said anyone who violates the open container law is subject to a $200 fine.
