Bemidji’s Bars Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day After Last Year’s Closures
It was this day last year that all bars had to close their doors due to COVID-19. Now a year later, things are not exactly back to normal, but for Bemidji’s bars, it will still be a St. Patrick’s Day to remember.
Last year, all bars in Minnesota were told to shut down by 5 PM on St. Patrick’s Day as the state went into lockdown, leaving many without a way to celebrate. This year, the spirit of the holiday (where everyone’s a little Irish) lived on for the green-clad guests at Brigid’s Pub and Keg n’ Cork in Bemidji.
The bars had special Irish-themed offerings to celebrate the day. They were allowed by law to be open until 11 PM tonight.
