Find a green shirt and have some corned beef and cabbage: St. Patrick's Day is on Thursday, March 17. Many places are offering Irish-centric deals for the holiday, even though many American traditions for St. Patrick's Day would cause a traditional Irish person to balk. Here are a few deals you should take advantage of, that don't require any Irish luck.
1. McDonald's Shamrock Shake and Burger King's new Oreo Irish Mint Shake are both available through March 19. Arby's has a "Mint Chocolate Swirl Shake" available for all of March. Finally, all shakes at Sonic are half off on March 17 for St. Patrick's Day.
2. You can get a short stack of buttermilk pancakes at IHOP for $1 if you walk in on St. Patrick's Day between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. wearing something green.
3. You can enjoy $4 green beers and $5 Irish whiskey at most Bar Louie locations on March 17 and 18.
