Green beer flowing, Guinness stew on the menu, the sounds of Riverdance in the distance -- yes, St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner.

Whether you'd rather start drinking in a bar at 7 a.m. with a few new friends, or enjoy a family-friendly parade through the heart of the city, there's plenty to do around town for Washingtonians of all ages.

Last year, President Obama caused a stir after dropping by Irish bar The Dubliner, where he downed a pint of Guinness and mingled with St. Paddy's Day revelers.

While we can't guarantee you'll see the president at any of these places, we can guarantee there's something on this list of St. Patrick's Day events to appeal to anyone.
