Troll Pub at the Wheelhouse will give St. Patrick’s Day revelry-seekers another option beyond the Dublin Pub just up the street at 300 Wayne Ave., which traditionally attracts robust crowds from the pre-dawn through the wee hours of the holiday. Many other bars and restaurants in the Oregon District and the Brown Street strip also are planning special events on Saturday.
