'Lungomare' in Oakland, California, is celebrating St. Patrick's Day with a gourmet Irish dinner and whiskey tasting. Instead of sipping green beer all night, this event allows consumers to enjoy a taste of real Irish cuisine.

The 'St. Patty's Day Booze, Bites and Shenanigans' event takes place in Jack London Square at Lungomare. The event consists of a gourmet Irish dinner prepared by chef Craig DiFonzo and Beam Suntory. The four-course meal is based on traditional Irish ingredients and includes dishes such as smoked salmon tartar with duck fat crackers and Chocolate Budino with chantilly cream. As guests enjoy their meal, they will have a chance to sample and learn about three different styles of whiskey. Finally, the evening will end in Lungomare's Lounge, where guests will be treated to a round of specialty cocktails.
