With St. Patrick's Day fast approaching, the bar billed as "everyone's favorite sports bar" near SMU celebrated St. Practice Day, more or less a party before the party, on Feb. 19. 

Sponsored by Fireball Whisky, The Nodding Donkey SMU and Ben & Skin from The Fan hosted the night with giveaways, tons of Fireball and the greenest of green beer.

Patrons who wore green earned free access into The Nodding Donkey on St. Patty's, so if you didn't catch the fun this year, start planning for next time.

Check out some of the festivities below before heading out for the St. Patrick's Day parade on March 19.

Some people really dug Fireball

Others... not so much

Shots were taken in creative ways

Plenty of people wore green

And above all, everyone had a good time
