Beer me: 'Tis the season of the leprechaun, clovers, and a very American celebration of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland (and an excuse to drink Guinness and eat lots of corned beef and cabbage). And while most of San Luis Obispo will brave the early morning to stumble out of their favorite bar (read: church) before noon on Sunday, March 17, a few will choose to celebrate a day early with Zest It Up's Cooking and Crafting with Beer for St. Patrick's Day Workshop on Saturday, March 16, from 6 to 8 p.m. The interactive workshop is all about cooking with Firestone Walker beer, and the menu includes beer pub cheese and pretzels, slow beer-braised short ribs, homemade sour beer pickles, a fudgy stout brownie, and a beer ice cream float. Tickets are $65 and include all the necessary crafting supplies to leisurely create a wall-mounted beer opener as you check out and/or participate in the cooking demo (tickets are available at my805tix.com; guests should be over 21 years old) ... Early bird tickets for the Avocado Margarita Street Festival in Morro Bay are on sale now. Until March 15 at 11:59 p.m., you can get tickets for $5, which come with two chances to enter the Year Supply of Avocados raffle for no additional cost! AvoMargFest 2019 takes place on Saturday, Sept. 7 (avomargfest.com). Δ
