With St. Patrick's Day falling on a weekend this year, many area bars, restaurants and pubs hope to bring in more green.
The extra cash comes in part from people who are celebrating two days in a row this year.
"You can take Friday off and have Saturday like an awesome weekend," said Amanda Beaver, who was having a beer with her girlfriends at The Claddagh Irish Pub.
The group plans to start early the next day and celebrate all over again.
Businesses are also expecting to see traffic all day on St. Patrick's day as opposed to waiting for customers to get off work on a weekday. Some managers also believe people will stay out later.
"People don't have to go to work the next day," said Kate Loughnane, Claddagh's General Manager. "So there's more people out and about."
The dry, warm weather adds another element that's making even managers at businesses that didn't have the Irish theme feel like it was going to be a lucky weekend.
"There's going to be a lot of traffic walking in," said Osmin Salgdo, General Manager at El Rodeo Mexican Bar and Restaurant.
