St. Patrick's Day

ECU students who plan to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day are encourage to have fun and make wise choices if they plan to drink or attend events around the Greenville, North Carolina, area.

March 17 is St. Patrick’s Day, a celebration that originated in Ireland and is notorious for drinking, going out to bars, wearing green, and attending parties. The holiday is known to be popular at East Carolina University as students attend day parties, often referred to as “darties.”

When attending parties that consist of alcohol, it’s important for individuals to pace themselves when drinking. Always attend parties with a group of friends to stay safe and do not drink and drive under any circumstances. Uber and Lyft are popular transportation resources that can be used to return home or figure out a sober designated driver who is able to drive everyone home.

We, the editorial staff of The East Carolinian, encourage students who plan to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day to have fun and make wise choices if they plan to drink or attend events around Greenville, North Carolina. 

There are various businesses surrounding the ECU area that plan to host St. Patrick’s Day events. Christy’s Euro Pub will serve traditional Irish dishes and have live performances. Pitt Street Brewing Company will have an Irish food truck, new beer releases and a Shamrock Hunt event. 

Greenville will provide events for individuals who prefer not to drink but would like to celebrate the holiday. On Thursday’s, Stumpy’s Hatchet House is known for its College Night, where college students can go axe throwing for 50% off. 

With almost a month left until the end of the semester, we hope our fellow Pirates celebrate St. Patrick’s Day to the fullest and make memories with their peers in the safest way possible.
