Quoting SmithAir747 (Reply 4): Are there any good Irish pubs/restaurants in San Francisco?
O'Reilly's Holy Grail
The Mucky Duck
Just to name a few.
Few me, I'll be waring green and getting drunk somewhere. Probably with KevinL1011. I am here in LA for the week and wont be able to cook some corned beef and cabbage. Otherwise I'd make some of that and have Murphy's and or Jamesons.

Alas, being a lone Irishman (50% Irishman, anyway) here in Lund, as in not knowing any other Irish people here, it's difficult to convince friends to get sloshed on a Tuesday. Normally, I suppose that people wouldn't mind, middle-of-the-week drinking usually isn't a problem, but people have tests and paper deadlines. I don't, however. Hell, I even have a day off on Wednesday... I just need to find some people...
Sure, we're concerned for our lives. Just not as concerned as saving 9 bucks on a roundtrip to Ft. Myers.

Since St. Paddy's Day fell on a Tuesday this year (damn leap year last year), I will be unfortunately at work between 5-10. It sucks, because I start late enough I can go have a couple cold ones, but UPS prohibits even drinking mildly before shift, and 10PM on a Tuesday? School, work and other stuff like that.
I will celebrate a (late) St. Patrick's Day this weekend at my favorite Irish Pub, The Donegal. For all the Calgarians who know, The Donegal is on 37th St. just north of 17th Ave. SW, near Manning High School.

Quoting Aerobalance (Reply 13): By taking a redeye to Boston tonight, testing one of my products in Boxborough tomorrow morning, taking said product to Stratford CT, driving back to BOS tomorrow evening to fly back to LAX - fun...
Being in Boston on Saint Patrick's Day sort of requires you to drink.

I'll be at work, but on Sunday I went and watched the Milwaukee Bucks (hell yeah!) beat the Boston Celtics 86-77. Glad nobody from Boston is whining over that. Both teams have players injured and it was a good game all the way.
Hey Obama, keep the change! I want my dollar back.

Well, that was a nice Paddy's day! Lots of people in the streets, bands playing and everything. I had a nice day with my friends and after the whole afternoon and evening drinking Guinness and green-coloured lager, I'm back home!
Because tomorrow, back to work... if I don't call in sick

I don't celebrate because I am not Irish.
It's funny how everyone in the UK rants on about St Patricks Day, most of them are not even frigging Irish. Ask them when St Georges Day is and no-one knows...
Dumb Brits. I will celebrate St Georges Day by hanging flags everywhere then probably get arrested by the PC Brigade... it's all bullsh*t!
Never give up..
25 OA260: But one has to have a culture to celebrate it LOL... When I was growing up in West London they never even mentioned St Georges Day where as St Patric
26 LH423: I worked on school work and then went to the gym, heated up some leftovers and ended the evening with some Häagen Dazs Dulce de Leche. Now off to bed
27 YYZflyer: Got drunk with friends...hell I still am. haha Had a fun time. I'm looking forward to next year.

31 AmricanShamrok: Scotland is not Ireland and this type of thing would annoy me. The two share similarities in landscape and some Celtic traditions but other than that
