Yes, it's that time of the year again. The smog lifts a little, the flowers are about to blossom and we all gather to celebrate a fifth-century Romano-British sheep herder. You know the guy. The one who was kidnapped by raiders, forced into six years of slavery, rescued by the voice of God before going on to convert the heathen Irish. Cheers to you, St Patrick.
Honour the great man by cracking out the green velour, rinsing out that stolen Guinness mug from last year and checking out Time Out Beijing's recommendations for celebrating St Patrick's Day in the capital.
