Ah-toy ah-toy ah-toy - it's pretend your Irish day again this coming weekend, and as the luck of the Irish would have it (pun intended) St. Patricks day is this Friday, 17th March. Now if anyone says St. Patties day, they need a slap (aka everyone from USA or Canada). St Patricks Day, or St Paddies day. No Patties - got it?!
There are, obviously, a number of parties happening all over the city where you can go and search for a pot of gold cunningly disguised as green beer (probably no one doing that) or a Guinness (everyone doing that). A&E must be excited about all the Guinness thats going to be drunk in Oman this weekend!
So, here are a selection of the parties for you to consider going to....
1. InterContinental, Muscat
On both the 16th and 17th of March at the Palm Gardens come and enjoy live Irish music by the Gulf Tones. RO 16 per person (redeemable for food and drinks). For more info you can call 9137 3243 or email them on FB.ICM@IHG.com
2. Grand Hyatt, Muscat
There are two St Patricks Day festive options available at the Hyatt this year - Brunch and then Safari in the evening. Brunch is RO 35 with free flow until 4pm. In the evening Safari Bar are offering special prices on Guinness and Irish whiskey along with a RO 10 cover charge which includes a cocktail too. For more information you can call the hotel on 2464 1234 or email email@example.com
There are a few things on in one of Muscats two Irish bars, but the biggest thing to take from it is that its Happy Hour all day at Feenies this Friday.
4. The Bank
