St. Patrick’s Day at B.D. Riley’s Irish Pub. The poster advertising the bar’s biggest day of the year is pretty blunt about it: “If you’re looking for green beer, you’re in the wrong pub.” But if you want a day of authentic music and food and that perfect Guinness pour, B.D. Riley’s is the place to be. 10:30 a.m. Tuesday. 204 E. Sixth St. and 1905 Aldrich St. bdrileys.com/calendar/st-patricks-day-11.

10th annual Revival at Lucy’s Fried Chicken. One of the city’s best mid-March daytime events for the past decade, the Revival put together an especially strong lineup this year.

(Revival runs through Sunday.) Noon to 7 p.m. each day. 2218 College Ave. lucysfriedchicken.com. — Peter Blackstock
