Could it be that Grand Travern caters to the younger crowd. Pretty much all the other places cater to a little older Irish clientile. EVERYONE is Irish on St. Patty's Day. The TRUE Irish celebrate on the Sunday BEFORE St. Patrick's day and that is when you will see the parking lots pack to the gill!
