St. Patrick’s day is a holiday known for its insane levels of hedonistic revelry, and now you can understand on a statistical level how accomodating your city is to the Guinness soaked festivities. The personal-finance website WalletHub recently released its findings and stats for a list of 2017’s best cities for St. Patrick’s Day.

How does one come to this conclusion? The methodology, according to Wallethub, relies on a comparison of cities across four key demographics. Those demos being St. Patrick’s Day traditions, costs, safety and accessibility and weather conditions. Those four dimensions are then compounded by 16 relevant metrics, giving each city a specific score based on different points of measure.
