It’s that time of year again, everyone. Time to get together, drink too much green beer, and celebrate all things Irish. Whether you’re watching a local parade, hitting up a pub, or traveling to the Emerald Isle for the yearly celebration known as St. Patrick’s Day, remember to have a good time, pick a designated driver or hail a cab, and be safe and careful out there.
Being of Irish descent, you think I’d make a bigger deal out of St. Patrick’s Day, but I never really have been one to go out for it. I mean, I enjoy beer and food coloring as much as the next guy, and any excuse to listen to Flogging Molly is a good one, but I’m not big on crowds and trying to avoid all the drunk drivers and whatnot that still plague the streets. Plus, I’ve got work tomorrow. (That’s another strike against St. Patrick’s Day; most of the time, it’s not on a Friday so it can’t be celebrated properly.)
