lol, that's how i was raised, mel. st. pat's day was a day for church, then a family get together at home. not a day for wild partying.
in my late 20's and early 30's, however, i used to "help out" at a pub in nyc owned by a friend. helping out included pushing fist fights out into the street (rather than allow it inside the pub), get pukers to the bathroom instead of letting them throw up where they stood, watch for pick pockets and people stealing money off the bar, look for people carrying weapons, and generally bodyguard the waitresses and my friend from any ill tempered customers.
i sure as heck prefer church and a quiet day at home.
