Every year, The Santa Barbara Independent invites readers, neighbors, community members, and more to our annual (est. 2008) St. Patrick’s Day Stroll, a festive walk down State Street with the paper’s staffers, associates, and friends. Meet at 5 p.m. Thu., Mar. 17 at our 122 West Figueroa Street offices, or join in en route as we walk down State from Figueroa to Gutierrez and then back up to Ortega for a 21+ celebration at Wildcat. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
