A Spirited St. Patrick’s Day Celebration: Alcohol Spending by City

If you’re like most Americans, you’ll celebrate St. Patrick’s day in one of the following ways: you’ll wear green, head downtown to watch or even partake in your city’s St. Paddy’s day parade… or simply head to the local bar and have a… well, rather spirited celebration. This year, we were curious to find out where in the United States folks celebrated the hardest — and where, in general, people “celebrate” throughout the year. In other words, how much do Mint users spend on alcohol — throughout the year, and specifically in the week before and after the holiday? We give you the results, based on anonymized Mint data, in this infographic. Cheers!
