On the last day of St. Patrick’s Day things were starting to get weird. Wichita was starting to understand that COVID-19 was serious business, and several restaurants and bars began to voluntarily close.

A year later, things are still a little weird. But many restaurants feel confident enough to offer St. Patrick’s Day dishes, events, and other specials.

Here are some places Wichita can celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with food this year. Some started on Saturday, but most have either waited until today or postponed their weekend specials.

Let me know if I miss anyone by emailing dneil@wichitaeagle.com.
