The Village Green is indeed an excellent place to be on St. Pats. Or on most any other day. One of the things I miss the most from my old neighborhood.

Say hi to everyone for me.

We went to the Shamrock for lunch on Friday - it was the first time I had eaten there. It was awesome - I couldn't believe the platter of food, and then I couldn't believe I plowed through it in no time flat. I was ready to be unimpressed anywhere we went for lunch (so ready that I had corned beef cooking in the crockpot before I left for work that morning), but the Shamrock's corned beef platter was the best food surprise I've had in a long time.

I went early, around 9am and had the breakfast corned beef platter. It was hashbrowns, layered by corned beef with eggs on top, had mine over hard. It was a yummy start to the day. I was going to go back for a reuben but never got around to it after book shopping on State. I hope there is enough left for breakfast tomorrow.

Maybe I'll see you. Genna's mimosas were okay, but. . . yours RULE.

Boycott Brocach, they're the only bar on the square that will not contribute to the parade fund because they're "going to get all the business anyway"...fuck them.


That is lame on their part. I thought the owners were from Chicago, they outta know about having a fun St Patrick's Day. FIBs!

Brocach is listed as a sponsor on the parade's website. Also a banner naming the sponsors was at the head of the parade and Brocach was on it.

Well, I gave Brocach my business, as I have done the last 3 St Pats. It's the only place with *good* Guinness on tap, for starters. Plenty of others there yesterday too, even at 11am.

Best Guinness pour in town. Absolutely!
And their happy hour special of a pint plus a shot of Jameson for 6 bucks is a great deal.
But I will never do the Irish Breakfast again - WAY too much food!

glad the parade issue was resolved. Speaking of the parade, I went over to brocach just as the parade was starting. As I crammed my way through the totally insane number of people in brocach to place a takeout order, probably violating sexual assault laws because it was so tightly packed, I watched the parade a bit. Even with brocach's support it was incredibly lame. The best part were the bands playing on the back of pickup trucks. I can't say as I've seen anything quite so spectacularly boring.

I got much more amusement out of the people around the square. I was wearing a kind of pastel green, but pretty much everyone else had the "right" green. There were people in giant hats and all kinds of crazy hair styles. Lots of fun.

And as expected, the corned beef was great!
