Santa Monica's established Irish pubs won't be the only hotspots on St. Patrick's Day.
Brick + Mortar, the trendy Main Street bar and restaurant tucked behind Peet's Coffee, is throwing a green-themed bash with multiple DJs.
Drink specials include Jameson shots ($7), green beer ($4) and green "shamrock shots" ($4). In addition to the regular menu, the kitchen will serve corned beef hash, reubens, bangers and mash and corned beef and cabbage.
On the other side of the city, Wilshire Restaurant is planning it's own "Paddy O'Party."
