Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

March 17th.  How we all look forward to you each year… for corned beef and cabbage, or shepherd’s pie, or perhaps more importantly, green alcoholic beverages and ‘Kiss Me, I’m Irish’ shirts.

I, for one, have fond memories of childhood St. Patrick’s Day celebrations with green milk (and I’m sure green beer for the adults), among other green food and decor, being served at my grandmother’s house.  It’s the O’Leary in us.

For those of you in Portland, Maine, this holiday is most appropriately celebrated at Bull Feeney’s or RiRa, or another establishment with Irish roots.

For my part, we’ll be eating corned beef and cabbage tonight… and I enjoyed shepherd’s pie for lunch… now I just need a green beer!

Pretty... and pretty big!

Pretty… and pretty big!

Happy St. Patty’s Day to all!
