Four rules for making the most of St. Patrick’s Day in Boston:

1. I don’t care what some of these event titles say — it’s St. Paddy’s, not St. Patty’s (from the Irish Pádraig).

2. There’s a parade on Sunday but that doesn’t mean we won another sports championship. I know, it’s weird. The parade starts at 1 so plan your drinking accordingly.

3. I don’t know, maybe drink some water? Also, green beer contains no vitamin C. Eat a lime or something so you don’t get scurvy.

4. Don’t be this girl.

All set? Great. Now here’s six days worth of St. Paddy’s Day parties, concerts, pub crawls and more:
