Everyone enjoys putting on their best green clothes on March 17 and being Irish for a day. We’ve all heard there was a saint and something to do with snakes in Ireland and now we have parades and drink green beer. But what do we really know about St. Patrick’s Day?
Here in Central New York spring begins when the snow melts for the final time (and doesn't come back) and isn't tied to a specific day on the calendar, but for everyone who's had it with wintery weather by now, maybe looking forward to a future day might help get you through the doldrums. Try March 20th at 7:02 AM coinciding with the VernalEquinox. The Vernal Wha?
St. Patrick's Day is this weekend and we all know we'll be drinking from the time we wake up until we pass out involuntarily for consuming more alcohol than any human body was meant to handle! read these 10 facts before you get sloshed and spout them off on this heavily lubricated day to a crowd of people that probably won't be able to remember their own names much less understand you!
Leprechauns! Ah yes, these little fellows are probably the first thing that comes to your mind when you think about St Patrick's Day and the Irish, however, the Irish are none to keen on the modern day idea of Leprechauns.
I went to T.G.I. Friday's for the first time last winter and low and behold, what was on the beverage list than my two favorite beers (Guinness and Blue Moon) mixed together with the lighter beer on the bottom and the dark one floating on top! They called it the Eclipse, but turn's out it's actually called a Black & Blue, a cousin to the Black & Tan.
You can drink by yourself on St. Patrick's Day (totally not fun) or at a house party (marginally fun) but what about mixing it up with friends and strangers alike at a bar DEDICATED to all things Irish and GREEN? You can go anywhere in and around Utica to celebrate, but here's our Top 7 pubs and bars that you simply MUST visit and knock back a Guinness or two or... !!
