Sunday is St. Patrick’s Day, don’t ye know?
Here’s is a short list of events on or related to the annual celebration of things Irish:
Flute player Hanz Araki, of the Pogues tribute band K.R.M.I.A, joins violinist Kathryn Claire Band in a St. Patrick’s Day celebration at 9 p.m. March 17 at CEBU Lounge.
Double Mountain celebrates its anniversary — this is year six if you can believe that — every year on or about St. Patrick’s Day.
Hell’s Belles headline, with more music from Brewer’s Grade, Audio Amigos, Shed Shakers and Sid and Al. The event runs from 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m., with kids welcome until 5 p.m. Admission is $5 and includes a souvenir mug.
This will be one of the biggest shows at Double Mountain since its expansion project last spring.
At Marley’s Corner, 13th and C streets on the Heights, try corned beef and cabbage pasties on March 16; Marley’s will be closed March 17.
Barley Draught, traditional band with players from around the Gorge, plays a family-friendly set at ClockTower Ales in The Dalles, 2-5 p.m. on Sunday.
Barley Draught will also perform March 22, 7 p.m. to closing, at Solera Brewery in Parkdale.
Save the Date: if the Irish enjoy their Blarney, two of the more refined examples of the art are tongue twisters and palindromes — “Mac snubs Bob’s bun scam” is an example of both in one — and both will be in full flower in the third annual Tongue Twister Tournament, on April 26 at 7 p.m. at Hood River Middle School.
Comedian and World Champion Palindromist Mark Saltveit of Portland will headline the benefit for the SMART literacy program.

HRVHS student Dylan Polewczyk won the 1-minute fruit-pie eating event. Key rule, as stated by Chamber President Jason Shaner, “You have to eat the pie, you can’t just dislocate it. We will be checking for pie dislocation.” Enlarge
