Remember last year? If you do then you know Casey's St.Patrick's Day Street Festival is not something to miss. There'll be food, drinks & games. Featuring some of LA's finest DJ's including DJ Aaron Castle, DJ Waldo & DJ Timmy Two Shoes! Entrance at Wilshire & Hope. We are offering free general admission before 11am, $10 GA after 11am and a $40 VIP ticket allowing you access to the Casey's space. 6am - 2am on Monday, March 17th. That's right it's on a Monday so get there at early and drink plenty of water. God forbid you should end up passing out in one of the planters on the outside of an adjacent building. Believe me, I've seen it. Will be good times so come and show your Irish pride!
