St. Patrick's Day Tastes At South Coast Plaza
Your cure for those green beers.

Special days that include luck and beer are few and far between (unless you happen to be in Vegas?). That is why Saint Pat's is one holiday Weeklings can agree on. And if you find yourself in Costa Mesa on Thursday to celebrate, the Irish theme can be found all over.
If it's a meal you're after, drop in to Lawry's Carvery near the Macy*s Men's Store for a traditional meal of corned beef and cabbage. For $14, it includes roasted potatoes to fill your belly. Missing kraut? Opt for an $8 cheesy panini with corned beef and the fermented stuff.
A sugar fix means heading to Sugarfina for a box of their Pot O' Gold— shimmery chocolate pearls from Greece! For more chew, grab some gummy Pale Ale Pints, flavored with a hint of citrus. Their sleek, see-thru cubed packaging will cost you $7 a pop. Buy one of each and use them to make some new drinking companions.
Four-leaf clovers can be found at Champagne French Bakery Cafe in cookie form for a mere $1.50. Leave a trail of buttery crumbs as you shop or prep your appetite for partying. For that much, grab a few for the office and make co-workers happy.
Plus, Nekter Juice Bar opens this Friday across from Champagne. Recover from a long night with $1 smoothies and juices that normally start a $5.95. We admit to slurping a Toxin Flush (pictured) after our workouts. Follow them on social media for additional deals all weekend.
