If you weren’t sold by the simple fact goats will be present… we don’t even know what to say! Ditch the green beers (unless that your thing, of course) and spend St. Patty’s day in a rather unique way at a working hobby ranch just outside of Malibu. Celebrate Irish history with a heard of goofy goats, alongside a few other animals, while sipping on commentary Irish whiskey — when you’re ready to take a break from petting the fur babies, enjoy a small plate happy hour!
