This weekend, Gloucester Township Patch finds ways to celebrate all things Irish and presents a mix of adult- and kid-friendly fun.

This weekend, I'll celebrate their sixth birthday. As much fun as partying with kindergartners can be, it will be nice to kick back and have some adult time once their birthday is over. This week's Get Out features a good mix of events—for 6-year-olds, beer drinkers and all those in between.
