Yes, it's THAT day! The day in which we celebrate St. Patrick driving the "snakes" (metaphor for pagans) out of Ireland.
Also, happy birthday to Colin and Jeff!

UPDATE: The Wilde Rover was a bust, so I did nothing for St. P's. Also, this is a holiday on two fronts:

1. Frat boys who wear beads-- these guys just want an excuse to drink, plain and simple.

2. The real Irish-- this holiday is one of pride and shame. Disloyalty/secession from the crown of England, car bombs (the kind made with C4, not Guinness), Michael Collins and Darby O'Gill (the Disney movie from the 50's that is still the national movie of Ireland). This day is kind of like Mardi Gras-meets-the-Kent-state-shooting-tragedy, all rolled into one.
