The Tuscaloosa staple didn't feature a crowd a larger than most years, with the University of Alabama students out of town for spring break. But, according to Manager Nick Snead, Innisfree still plans to entertain approximately 1,000-1,200 patrons throughout the festivities.

"Normally, we wouldn't expect a big night crowd, but, with it being Friday, we should have a good hit late tonight especially with the weather being as bad as it was early on," Snead said.

The bar and restaurant at the corner of University Boulevard and 20th Avenue known for its Irish cuisine is offering a limited menu to better-serve its bar-goers. However, for those looking for traditional St. Patty's day fare, Innisfree is adding a trio of corned beef and cabbage sliders on Friday only.
