We asked Patch readers across the region to tell us about their favorite places to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Here’s a look at some of the winners:
In the poll that ran on Bethesda, Chevy Chase, North Potomac-Darnestown and Potomac Patches, a corner cupcake shop in Friendship Heights, Chevy Chase, beat out the bars as readers' favorite place to honor the holiday. The spring green-frosted, shamrock-topped cupcakes at Frosting, A Cupcakery, received 37 percent of the vote. Ri Ra Irish Pub in Bethesda came in second, with 22 percent of the vote.
In Prince George's County, Patch readers in Riverdale Park, College Park, Greenbelt and Hyattsville chose Riverdale Park's S & J Bar and Restaurant, "which overwhelmingly won the most votes for best place to celebrate Saint Patrick's Day," Patch reported.
