14 March, 2009


I guess I never realized before that New Yorkers really get into their St. Patrick's Day festivities. Last night (on merely the 13th of March, with still four more days to go until the celebration of all things green & lucky) in a bar called the Blarney Stone Pub, three young men in full Irish bagpiper regalia waltzed right in, set up in the very center of the place and started playing. Two with bagpipes, one with a snare drum, kilts all around. When they passed a hat to collect donations, I easily threw in my last few bucks and enjoyed the music.

If this is what happens during the St. Patty's Day pre-game... my goodness, what the real day must be like!
