Of course it is :P Because of the infinite wisdom of the promoters for putting shamrock fest the week after St Pattys.

That festival is a far cry from HFStival anyways. its hanging out in a parking lot... can we get something better as an option?

A lot of major metro areas have discovered they'll have less problems with drunken behavior at St. Paddy's parades and events if you hold it a week or two before or after the 17th. There will still be plenty of parties at the bars on Saturday, for those who want to get drunk on green beer.

But Shamrockfest is transit-accessible!

HFSTival is all the way up at Merriweather, which is one of the worst venues to get to and from. I'd rank it maybe 10th worst in the region (the first 9 spots are occupied by Jiffy Lube Live).
