St. Patrick's Day is upon us, and with it the annual citywide glorification of spirited, drunken debauchery. It doesn't take much effort, or money, to wet your whistle during the Irish holiday, but everybody who's waited half an hour for a sub-par pour of Guinness knows that not all bar deals are created equal. So, in the spirit of enabling, we've rounded up our picks for some of the best booze deals out there we're not necessarily talking quality; this is mostly about bang-for-your-buck. Check out all of our picks, and then chart your plan of attack with the map below.
