Michael William Harrison, Jigsaw and Jeffery Phillips are scheduled to keep the event pumping all night long.
Corned beef, cabbage, green cocktails – oh my! Come out to Hub Streat in Downtown Plano to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with festive dishes and drinks.

Long-time locals know that the Ringo’s Pub St. Patrick’s Day Block Party has always been a place to be seen on March 17.

Music lovers can bob along to hits by local favorites Local Yoakam, Hip Hop Hooray, Awesome Sauce, Emerald City Band and Le Freak. Make sure to get over to Ringo’s before 5:00 p.m. to pay only half price for the cover charge.
