Best ways to celebrate St. Patty’s Day in Downtown Hackensack

Get ready. This Thursday, March 17, St. Patrick’s Day is back in The SACK. The day we honor St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. Over the years (especially in the states), this holiday has morphed into a day to celebrate Irish culture through food, drink, dancing, and of course, a whole mess of green. Every city or town has its go-to spots that capture the true flavor of the Emerald Isle, and The SACK is no different. Just head down Main Street (sporting your best green) to visit these top picks.

Start off with a toast at Cap’s on Main
Pale ales. Ciders. Stouts. Cap’s on Main at 240 Main Street has over twenty beers to choose from, not to mention a dizzying array of festive cocktails and fine wines. There is no shortage of ways to raise your glasses high to toast the spirit of St. Patrick here.

Dig into tasty traditions at SideBar and Lazy Lanigans
Nothing says St. Patrick’s Day better than a savory slice of Shepherd’s Pie. SideBar at 45 Main Street serves up this iconic Irish favorite with ground lamb and rosemary, topped with a mashed potato crust. Dive into a fork full of this foodie favorite and then finish it off with a tumbler of Irish whisky—on the rocks or neat.

Of course, if you’re craving the top traditional Irish fare, corn beef, and cabbage (the handheld version), there’s always Lazy Lanigans on 604 Main Street. Their corned beef Reuben is served open face covered in sauerkraut, Thousand Island dressing, and melted Swiss cheese. Each bite pairs perfectly with a pint of Guinness.

Regardless if you visit one spot or stop by all three, you’re sure to have a fun time celebrating St. Patty’s Day in The SACK.
