March is a long month and a busy month and, in northern Indiana, there are a few sure signs of spring in March: daylight saving time, Hoosier Hysteria and, in the land of the Fighting Irish — St. Patrick’s Day celebration. All of that and more is on our radar after the first full week of March.

FOOD SPECIALS, SHOWS AND MORE FOR ST. PATRICK’S DAY CELEBRATIONS

Whether you dream of an endless buffet of corned beef and cabbage, or green beer for the over-21 crowd is more your style, there are plenty of ways to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in northern Indiana. St. Patrick’s Day is Tuesday, March 17, but celebrations start as early as Friday, March 13. 

 

Find a full list of events for the whole family on Flavor 574. While you’re at it, let us know if you have any green-food favorites to whip up for your celebration. 

VEGAN AT THE BEND: MORE THAN JUST SUSHI AT WOOCHI

As it turns out, there’s more for a vegan at Woochi Japanese Fusion and Bar than just sushi.

“…the Woochi atmosphere and food presentation is new and exciting.”

Vegan at the Bend community blogger Rama Ganesan shared dinner with a friend, sampling drinks, appetizers and main dishes — teriyaki eggplant and bean curd country style. 

With more than 20 sections on the menu, Rama noted a section lists vegan entrees to make navigating the dishes easier for diners with special dietary needs. 

BLUEBUCKET DROPPING INTO LOCAL RESTAURANTS AND NONPROFITS

BlueBucket – the brainchild of a group of Notre Dame philanthropy students – is dropping in and making a splash at a few area restaurants and nonprofit organizations. 

Launched on March 2, the program partners with restaurants to help others in need. Upon purchase of some items at any of the five restaurants, a direct portion is donated to a charity of the customer’s choosing. 

Learn more about the program on Flavor 574.
