As the dust settles on another, wild St. Patrick’s Day weekend, those who partied hearty begin their recovery and those employed by Irish pubs recover a little harder.
As many of you know, I work in one of Tampa Bay’s more successful Irish pubs. All I can tell you about the weekend’s festivities – in case you missed them or better yet, don’t remember them – is that they included all the regalia you’d expect from a St. Patty’s Day celebration. Parades, whiskey, green beer, more whiskey, basically pandemonium on all fronts; fun times and bad decisions going hand in green dye-soaked hand.
I did, however, find time to check Twitter late one night to find the minds at Comedy Central ringing in the holiday in musically suggestive fashion.
Chris Hardwick and the @midnight game show challenged Tweeters to “Make a song Irish.” Considering where I work and the wild weekend that was, I had a good chuckle reading over these. I’m pretty sure you will too.
To all of you who swung by and those of you who didn’t, happy St. Pat’s. We’ll do it all over again next year!
