A quick history of St. Patrick’s Day
St. Patrick’s Day is on Sunday, and several Wichita restaurants will be serving up corned beef and cabbage, bangers and mash, shepherd’s pie and more.
And not all are limiting the Irish deliciousness to Sunday. Some are serving throughout the weekend.
Here are a few places where Wichita can get a taste of St. Patty’s day this year. Did I miss one? E-mail me at email@example.com.
