Celebrate St. Patrick's Day at the Wxyz
St. Patrick's Day is celebrated on March 17, his religious feast day and the anniversary of his death in the fifth century. The Irish have observed this day as a religious holiday for over a thousand years. On St. Patrick's Day, which falls during the Christian season of Lent, Irish families would traditionally attend church in the morning and celebrate in the afternoon. Lenten prohibitions against the consumption of meat were waived and people would dance, drink and feast—on the traditional meal of Irish bacon and cabbage.
At Aloft Dulles, we continue this tradition of St. Patrick's Day festivity by inviting you to our Wxyz for $1 green beer and other select brews. We are featuring DJ music throughout the evening and signature cocktails will be available at our Wxyz Lounge. So if you're planning to paint the town green this St. Patrick's Day, bring your family, friends and colleagues for some green beer and fun at the Aloft Dulles!
