Best Place to Celebrate St. Patrick's Day in Ohio

Receiving the title of “Best College St. Patrick’s Day Party in the U.S.” by BroBible and Huffington Post, it’s now time to divert away from the generally tame festivals and parades and venture into the unknown.  Don’t worry, you wanna-be leprechauns, we will give you the full run down of this little big town.  We aren’t sure how to start this, so we are just going to dive right in.  David Letterman once said, “There are four places to be on St. Patrick's day: Dublin, New York, Chicago & the University of Dayton.”  This quiet little Catholic university of around 8,000 undergrads swells to about 20,000 one day during the entire year.  St. Patrick’s Day.  With a prompt start time of 4am, hearing the music blaring from every house is the equivalent of hearing TAPS on an armed forces base because it’s time to get up and get green.  Once up, it’s time to start preparing for Tim’s Bar that opens at 5am and the annual gathering of leprechauns that happens on Lowes Street, affectionately referred to by UD students as “The Ghetto”.  This is pretty much where the party stays for the remainder of the day.  Literally every house is open to anyone who wants to venture in.  A fully inclusive party that spans an entire street.  It’s actually pretty impressive to witness the hospitality, if that’s the right word…  bagpipers with waning sobriety levels, university police drinking an occasional brew among students, and thousands of your closest friends are just a few of the things you can find at this university “party”.  We say “party” because in 2013, the party actually turned into what was deemed a riot and police in full riot gear had to show up and break up the shenanigans.  It also coincidentally ended up being the year that the University of Dayton bought accidental death insurance. So with that being said, you have been warned. It’s just so cool to think that in our Ohio backyard there is a St. Patty’s Day party that is like no other and if you’re up for the challenge to join in the festivities, then we salute you.

Back in the early to mid-seventies the green beer flowed from porches in the “student Ghetto” from 11 am until there was none left. Timothy’s bar, the moonlight, the casbah and the iron boar were the bars to go to for celebrating. Even back then, Dayton was known far and wide as the place to enjoy the holiday. People from other colleges in ohio came for the craziness that abounded. Good, no, great times.
