March 17th: Irish Pub Bouncing?

Good Morning Everybody,

Saint Paddy´s is only 2 weeks away ... What is on the agenda, Irish or not, it is a time for Irish Pub Bouncing ... Where to ?

Cornbeef and cabbage ? Desserts ?

We usually go to the Irish Pub located in our neighborhood for a few Celtic treats and in emerald green sweaters ( which we save for this occasion ) ... I have an Irish colleague who is married to a Spaniard and they join us for a Pub Crawl ...

Cornbeef with cabbage for lunch ...

Dessert ?

Something Green ? I sometimes make some cookies with green sprinkles and / or green icing ...

Any suggestions on the dessert part ?

Kindest.
Margi.

Bangers and mash washed down with a pint of Black & Tan.

My little tourist town has a lively St. Paddy's day, and we'll bar-hop. I'll make a humongous pot of corned beef, probably before, which will later be Rueben sandwiches and a soup I make for a shut-in friend, so I make the broth part especially tasty.

I find Irish Soda Bread to be on the sweet side; a slice of that topped with some fruit of a sort (in a bit of sugar and some Irish Whisky perhaps?) topped with whipped cream. Sort of like strawberry short cake.

I do not celebrate St. Patrick's Day because I am not Irish. I do not celebrate Cinco de Mayo because I am not Mexican. I do not celebrate Bastille Day because I am not French. I do, however, celebrate the Lunar New Year because I am Looney!

Though I am not Irish, Spain likes to have a Fiesta

Spain has many foreign expats, Irish being one of the large communities. Thus, an excuse to bar bounce and party ... Fiesta ...

We have an Irish section called Tipperary hill and it comes to life on St. Patrick's day. I will probably go on a mini pub crawl. As a side note they have a statue on the hill in honor of the Stone Throwers. When traffic lights were first installed in the city the Irish Stone Throwers used to throw rocks at the trafic light on Tipperary hill and break the red lens. They were upset because in an Irish neighborhood the top lens should be the Irish green one. The city finally gave in and changed the light so the green light was at the top and it remains that way today. The statue was erected in memory of those boys by the local publican, Peter Coleman owner of Coleman's Irish Pub. It has operated on Tipperary hill since prohibition ended. It is a fun place, it even has a small door with a stained glass window for the "little people". If you would like to learn more, or see the statue, google Coleman's Irish Pub.

I will try to stay home on St-Paddy's day. We have a lot of celebration here and the drunks are on the roads. I lost one car that way. Got rear-ended by a drunk.

Just like New Years Eve and now Mardi Gras, I don't go out on St. Pat's either. Heck, I don't go out at all any more except in the daytime to shop.

I will be playing snare drum for a country/irish style combo at a tavern. Probably won't eat anything until I get home.

I really wish I could bounce back to the little back street Irish Pub we found in Stresa! The Bushmills was well represented in thier Irish Coffee. Heck, I just want to go back to Stresa! Actually I just want to go back to Italy.
