St. Patrick’s Day – SF

Posted on March 18, 2011


Corned beef and cabbage. My old stool at O’Leary’s in Boston.  Irish soda bread.  Irish coffee.  Green beer.  NYPD and FDNY at the Kinsale on Third Ave and 94th Street.  Parades.  Green vomit.  Potatoes.  Hoboken. Eating Rita’s water ice in Hoboken after a full day of fun.  Guinness.

Those are the things that remind me of St. Patty’s Day.  In honor of those fine traditions, I’d like to propose a toast.

With an Irish coffee milkshake.

Now, we all know the special ingredient that makes an Irish coffee so special.  Namely, love.  And whiskey.
