Why not take a drive out east?

Long Ireland Beer Company in Riverhead hosts Long Island’s seminal Half Way to St. Patrick’s Day party. And it’s also the largest.

The place draws a crowd for food trucks, pipe bands, the Irish rock group Bangers and Mash, VIP tents and unlimited pours of 16-ounce beers.

It all happens Saturday, Sept. 14.
