And it is Paddy, not Patty. Thursday, for anyone removed from the stage of life in which you begin drinking at 8am to celebrate an Irish saint, is an off day for St. Patrick’s Day. Oh, how I miss you, college.
In Chicago we had our parade and accompanying blight of traffic-inducing bar crawls on Saturday. River dyed green and everything – so I’m not sure who’s celebrating again/still today. No, scratch that, I’m absolutely positive who is and it’s the regular crowd on Clark Street.
Given that I’m celebrating in South Florida this year, I get to deck myself out in green gems as well as clothes to match the occasion. Which is always infinitely better than green beer. While emeralds are the obvious choice to honor the patron saint of the emerald isle (the only place where today is a feast day, btw. Everywhere else it’s an optional memorial.) there are so many gorgeous green gems to get your requisite pinch of green in.
