Coronavirus blues got you down? Sure, everything is changing rapidly and most things seem uncertain, but there’s one thing we know for sure: St. Patrick’s Day is going to feel different this year. 

Instead of going out to bars, Toledoans will be staying home. While Toledoans are well accustomed to drinking alone in the living room, sipping Jameson in your bathrobe just feels sort of sad during a holiday. 

Fortunately, there are a few lucky options to get you in good spirits, while also celebrating from a responsible social distance.
