There was a lot going on at O’Sheas casino on St. Patrick’s Day.

There was the rain that drove the block party inside. There was the revelry. There was the bittersweet reality this would perhaps be the last O’Sheas block party. There were the shamrock tattoos. And there was the debauchery. Yes, there was lots and lots of unbridled bauching.

When it comes to throwing a party, O’Sheas knows what it’s doing.

As for the bittersweet part, O’Sheas will close on April 30, 2012 as part of the Linq development project. Casino officials did, however, take the opportunity to confirm O’Sheas won’t be going away forever, but rather, will have a spot of its own in the new Linq. Read more.

Thanks, guy who let us take a photo of his back.

O’Sheas devotees, including this blog, can take some comfort in the fact the new O’Sheas space in the Linq will stay true to the current O’Sheas feel, with a casual, unpretentious vibe, live music and, of course, beer pong.

See? Unpretentious.

Even torrential rain couldn’t moisten the spirits of St. Paddy’s day celebrants. Oh, just see for yourself. Warning: Repeated viewings of this video may cause pregnancy or other side effects.

The Dublin Up bar at O’Sheas, as well as the casino and beer pong area, were filled to capacity on St. Patrick’s Day, and Vince Neil Ink was doing brisk business as party-goers got shamrock tattoos to commemorate the occasion.

Nothing says, “I vaguely remember St. Patrick’s Day at O’Sheas,” like fresh ink.

We bumped into O’Sheas spokesperson Lucky the leprechaun, Brian Thomas, who seemed relieved his further employment is assured as part of the Linq. Lucky gets the rock star treatment when he roams the casino at O’Sheas, and always knows how to keep the party lively. (Hint: Free shots.)

O'Sheas Lucky

Everybody wants to get Lucky in Vegas, but only O’Sheas has him.

Still, there’s no getting past the fact O’Sheas, as we know it, will be no more after April 30. We loved hearing from O’Sheas fans, many wearing “Save O’Sheas” T-shirts, about the things they’ll miss, most involving beer. Here are our 10 Things We’ll Miss When O’Sheas Closes.

You can share your O’Sheas memories on the O’Sheas Facebook page.

Green, check. Fuzzy, check. Hooch, check.
