This Saturday is St. Patrick's Day, so, yes, you have a really good excuse to get wasted and be hungover Sunday. But if you aren't into celebrating the Irish saints by pounding Guinness and other Irish libations, there's some sober fun to be had.
The city is hosting its 161st Saint Patrick's Day Parade and Festival, which is expected to draw tens of thousands of people to San Francisco. The festivities kick off at 10 a.m. at the Civic Center Plaza, despite the expected rainfall. But hey, you will probably learn much more about the Irish culture than you would sitting in a pub drinking pints all day.
And the festival is free!
