You don’t have to be Irish to party on St. Patrick’s Day. Even if you don’t know the difference between the Blarney Stone and the Rolling Stones, you can still honor Ireland's patron saint with a green beer or two on Thursday.

Here are 5 fun places where you can celebrate the luck of the Irish and all things green in El Paso. Wherever it is you choose to get in touch with your inner-leprechaun, have fun, but more importantly, drink responsibly.

And may your appalling behavior not have any permanent consequences, or end up in a viral video demanding you be brought to justice.
