It turns out your neighborhood Irish pub might not be the only place to eat and drink on St. Patrick’s Day as national chain restaurants trended last year as the top spots according to Lyft riders. Last year, not only did St. Patrick’s Day party goers taking a Lyft grab drinks and food at The Cheesecake Factory, they also hit up Applebee’s® Neighborhood Grill & Bar, TGI Fridays℠ and more.
