St. Patrick’s Day is a holiday filled with rainbows and pots of gold, and lots of fun-loving leprechauns. But it’s also a tasty celebration, and one that makes us think of all sorts of delicious hearty dishes to make, from stews to potatoes.

But for those on the go on St. Patrick’s Day, which this year will be celebrated on Thursday, March 17, there are tons of exciting food specials and freebies. There’s even some green drinks and desserts thrown into the mix!


Applebee's is offering $5 Saintly Sips — options include the Tipsy Leprechaun, which is made of Jameson Irish whiskey, melon liqueur, blue curaçao, sweet and sour and lemon lime soda with a gold sugar rim and the Pot O’ Gold Colada, a piña colada featuring Captain Morgan rum and mango.


There’s a creative way to get a sweet deal at Arby’s this holiday. Cash back app Ibotta is offering 15% cash back. You may want to use this offer on the Mint Chocolate Shake, which is a creamy mint chocolate shake, topped with whipped cream chocolate drizzle and chopped Andes candy pieces.
