  St. Patrick's Day is March 17, and many bars across America go green for the day with shamrock-colored beer, "Kiss Me I'm Irish" T-shirts and patrons with four-leaf clovers painted on their faces. Locally, Dublin-born chef Matt Murphy has presented weeklong celebrations at his upscale pub The Irish House (1432 St. Charles Ave., 504-595-6755; www.theirishhouseneworleans.com), and events build on its year-round offerings of pub fare, whiskeys, draft offerings and Irish music.

  Beginning Monday, March 9, there are whiskey tastings, a bagpipe salute, trivia competitions and live music. On Thursday, March 12 there will be an Irish sea shanty sing-along. Friday brings the Dublin City Ramblers, an Irish ballad and folk band. Tickets are $35.

  Events continue through the weekend with dancing and "sexiest Irish man" and "loveliest Irish lass" competitions. On Tuesday, the restaurant hosts a Guinness jazz brunch, and there is live music from 1 p.m. to 10 p.m., plus a live broadcast of events from the restaurant.
