For me, it's just another excuse to hang out with friends and ummm...partake in the consumption of certain...intoxicating beverages.

I wasn't aware that an excuse was necessary.

I moderate myself and drink only very rarely, so yes, I do need an excuse. And I might be like 1/10 Irish, so I gotta do something to celebrate!

Working.

Everyone is Irish on this Hallmark Holiday.

Maybe we should have a St. Stanislaus day too, and you can get drunk then too?

i think one of my very first post's was complaining about a guy that said "happy St. Patty's day"... i hate when people say that!! Its St. Paddy's day!

Im taking tomorrow afternoon off work to go have a few drinks, hopefully get a bunch of freebies from my barman (one being a sweet Guinness Leather Jacket), and play a lot of foosball..

I'm going to work and then celebrate with the 4 year old and teach her a bit about her heritage....and maybe make some green sugar cookies. I bought a four leaf clover cookie cutter and the kidlet has been itching to use it.

Gonna make some Half and Halfs (Guinness over Harp), eat some corned beef (I'm not Catholic, but Chicago's Cardinal George said it was okay to have beef, even if tomorrow is Friday, so that's all good), and then I'm going to pray pray pray that my dear alma mater Bradley Braves don't get totally blown out by Kansas in the first round of the NCAA basketball tourney...

May the road rise up to meet you....

This is just an aside and not at all meant to be a thread hijack:

Anyone going to a certain pub for the drink deals? Pub drinks are just so expensive now.

I'm gonna hope my bike doesn't get vomited on or messed w/ by the idiot drunken kids from the suburbs and outer boroughs. And since the vatican said we can eat meat tomorrow, I'm gonna eat a Cuban sandwich.
