Here’s a rundown on the haps on everyone’s favorite religious-turned-secular celebration: Mulligan’s on the Blue starts the party early (6am check-in) with their 2nd Annual St. Patrick’s Day Golf Tournament, a benefit for Hospice Maui. Shotgun start is at 6:30am with a breakfast of homemade Irish soda bread and farm fresh eggs served at 8am (call Bill at 280-2296 or Tina at 874-1131 for more information). Their entertainment lineup is as full as their buffet ($25 lunch, $60 dinner, $15 food tent), with Trevor Jones (11am-1pm; also playing at Dog & Duck Irish Pub at 2pm and Lahaina Yacht Club at 6pm), Celtic Hart (1-3pm), Mean Fiddlers (3-4pm), Isle of Maui Pipe Band (4:30-5pm & 7-7:30pm), The Celtic Tigers (5-7pm & 7:30-8:30pm) and Willie K Band (9pm-12am). Speaking of the Dog & Duck, they’ve got $10 corned beef and cabbage, $3 Killians and $5 Maggie O Ritas, with the aforementioned live music starting at 1:30pm, plus a free shuttle running between the Triangle and Mulligan’s every hour starting at 4pm. Or stay away from the fray at the Triangle and bask in the luck of the Irish at Diamonds with shepherd’s pie and fish and chips specials and $4 green beers all day. Guinness Maui Cattle Company corned beef by Chef Macadangdang will be on the menu at Roy’s Kahana Bar & Grill’s four-course Irish beer pairing dinner ($45). At Ambrosia (10pm), everything is magically delicious with their sexy St. Patrick’s celebration featuring drink specials with names like “Lindsay Lohan.” And speaking of naughty ladies, the Kit Kat Club hosts a fancy-dancy Emerald Ball at Casanova (9:30pm).
