What's your go-to bar for St. Patrick's Day?

Are you going to head out on the actual holiday or start celebrating this weekend? Either way, what's your go-to bar in Jersey? And what type of place makes sense for the green beer holiday? Fancy? Wild? Live music?

Here are some great ones.

Each restaurant/bar has a unique way of helping you celebrate the St. Patrick's Day holiday. From loud and lively to more subdued and reserved. Jersey has it all. Food, beer, atmosphere, and enjoyment all await you.

My advice is to split the cost of a car with your friends and hit each one for a drink and a snack. Although there are 10 stops on this three to four-hour Jersey Crawl, if you have a drink at one and a snack at another, you'll make it.

You might consider this over a weekend instead of just one night. But either way, even if you just visit one of these great places over the next 10 weekends, you won't be disappointed.

Best coffee shops & cafes near NJ beaches

When it comes to food, New Jersey is known for many things such as pizza and pork roll. Don't count us out when it comes to coffee.

With all the hustle and bustle involved in the average New Jersey resident's day, coffee is essential. It doesn't matter whether you're living in the cities of North Jersey or the vacation spots at the shore.

In fact, as the former owner of two Jersey shore coffee houses, Coffee Dot Comedy in Sea Isle City and the Daily Grind in Ocean Grove, I know firsthand how much people at the Jersey shore love their coffee.

With respect to that, I asked my social media following where the best coffee houses at the Jersey Shore were, especially since my two places no longer exist.

Below is what they came up with. (And see this other article for their coffee shop and cafe recommendations for Central Jersey.)
