A fine St. Patrick's Day of celebrating
It’s the last holiday of the winter - St. Patrick’s Day. The holy man may be famous for driving the snakes out of Ireland, but here we celebrate his memory feasting on hearty Irish dishes. Dare we say, hoisting a few Guinness pints or glasses of Jameson’s? Or listening to the spirited drums and pipes beating out a jig or two?
