American Social - Saint Patty's Day party plan

Posted: Updated:

Saint Patrick's Day will soon be upon us and the question is where to celebrate? Many an establishment will swing open its doors in hopes of earning your patronage. In Fort Lauderdale, American Social's come up with a Saint Patty's Day party plan they know will literally blow you away. Here's Shireen O'Sandoval.

Listen up, lads and lassies if you're looking for a place to swing your shillelagh on Saint Patrick's Day, make it up to American Social on Las Olas you'll be wearing the green and drinking it, too.

Rick Mijares: "Everyone will come out. They're gonna be decked to the nines in their shamrock T-shirts, their green hats. Everybody's gonna have green beer and our specialty cocktails."

We'll quench your thirst for knowledge about the cocktails in a moment "Am-So" is serving up more than liquid libations on march seventeenth.

Rick Mijares: "We're bringing in like last year an unbelievable bagpiper and we're very proud of that. We have a celtic dancer coming in and we're gonna have some Irish dishes."

You'll require some hearty grub to soak up the spirits you'll be pounding. The chef's got you covered.

Rick Mijares: "We will have a Irish-inspired Rueben sandwich with our own little twist on it, and a homemade bread pudding with some irish whiskey infused inside."

A belly full of corned beef and pudding can make a person mighty thirsty. That'll be no problem on this night.

Rick Mijares: "We have an Irish margarita with our own special blend. It'll be really fantastic. We have a shamrock tea shot. We have a kiss me I'm Irish martini."

These specialty drinks are all unique but you'll definitely want to wrap your lips around a peppermint patty.

Rick Mijares: "That has Patron in it it. Has stoli raz creme de menthe and a little heavy cream, and that's served on the rocks."

Maybe it's intuition maybe they can see the future but the folks at American Social know exactly who'll be partying at their place come Saint Patrick's Day.

Rick Mijares: "I anticipate a heavy heavy Irish presence."

    I'll never forget the endless summers I spent on the coast of North Carolina. My shoulders were always kissed by the sun, my hair was continually salty from the ocean and my one-piece, bright blue bathing suit was my constant companion.

    The last time I had on a pair of overalls, I was miles from civilization with a whip in my hand, an hysterical co-worker by my side and five angry cowboys staring me down.

    I don't remember dying, but I did. Twice. It was a chilly Fall morning in October at a dentist's office in Santa Fe. My mom had escorted me to what was supposed to be a regular wisdom teeth extraction appointment.
