Get ready to show off your shamrocks! You might just get lucky this St. Patrick’s Day, although the actual holiday of St. Patrick’s Day falls on Monday, celebrations commence throughout the weekend. With San Francisco’s very active Irish population, you can be sure there will be plenty of dancing, raging block parties, corned beef, cabbage and so much more.
