The Recipe for a Perfect St. Patrick's Day

With St. Patrick’s day just around the corner it’s important to start laying out the necessities. I mean you need to pick the right bars, the right outfit, the right crowd to hang out with. And not to mention, if you want to last all day, lay out some sort of day drinking plan. But have no fear, because your dear ol’ Irish pals at O’CollegeCandy always have your best interests at heart when it comes to a good party and plan on taking care of you!
So here’s our list of everything you need to have a St. Patrick’s Day that will make St. Patrick (whoever he was) proud.
The Perfect Outfit:
One of the most important things to remember about St. Patrick’s day is that there can be a thing as having too much green. You are not in grade school; it’s not cute to put your hair in braids and sprinkle it with green glitter. A little bit of green can go a long way, but there are a few things you should stay away from…well two in particular, green nails and green lips.
The perfect way to spice up your outfit is by adding hints of green, a green cardigan, a muted green dress with a black sweater over it, a green tank with your favorite jeans (maybe find a sequined one for some wow). There are tons of choices out there; pick one of these, and you’ll be good to go!
The Perfect Green Dish:
There are a couple of things I don’t like about green food, the major thing being the way it looks when it is leafy and stuck in your teeth. But in order to honor St. Pat the right way, there are some Irish dishes that absolutely need to make it into your belly today. Maybe not corned beef and cabbage (yuck?), but, trust me, there are a lot of options out there. Just be aware: green food coloring doesn’t wash away easily. Especially from your teeth.
The Perfect Bar:
St. Patrick’s day is NOT a classy holiday, that is one of the reasons college kids swarm local bars for a little bump and grind and some green bear. Am I right? But it is important to choose the bar wisely. No one wants to end up at a dead bar on St. Patrick’s day (although if you find one, I think you should win a prize). If you are feeling daring, scope out some of the Irish pubs in your nearest city, if you want to stick close to school then see if your local bar is doing some kind of fun St. Patty’s day themed night. Not matter what, as long as a little green beer is involved, you are sure to have a blast.
The Perfect Crowd:
This one is easier said then done. Since most people go out on St. Paddy’s day to get trashed (just trying to be real), it’s important to have a DD if you are going somewhere. But you also need to find  someone who doesn’t mind being sober when everyone around them is drunk. Make sure to also bring along that super generous-when-drunk guy to buy you drinks and, of course, your favorite lady friends who are always down for a mid-day dance party (or Irish Jig).
The Perfect Irish Inspired Hook Up:
Well, if you are attached this won’t be too much of a problem for you, but if you are single…be prepared for swarms of guys to attack you with their charm. Or their drunken confidence and (what they think is a) swagger. But how to pick the right one? Make sure to find the one you think is the most attractive when you are sober and stick close to him for the night. If you can’t find one, ask your BIFFs to help you located a winner. Oh, and make sure to do a friend check before you leave the bar with your Irish stud.
Look, it’s not hard to have a good St. Paddy’s day. So long as you have good drinks and amazing company your holiest of holy college holidays will be splendid. But if you are lacking either, make sure to follow my advice and hit up a party/bar ASAP to make some new friends while the green beer is a’ flowing.
