if you are celebrating St. Patty's Day with a trip to your favorite Irish pub I hope you are think corned beef and cabbage, red skin potatos, and Reuben sandwiches with many of the same ingedients. I couldn't find anyone selling shamrocks for lunch, and I didn't ask about green beer. No Green beer for me, I've been around enough beer snobs to know I would be chastised for not undertanding the power of Guinness stout and those other dark beers that look, and taste like crank case oil on this hallowed Irish day.
After querying Durty Nellie's, Mother's Pub , and the Beef O'Brady's located on the corner of University Ave. and NW 13th St. the GLOB Shamrock team discovered varying prices on corned beef and cabbage dinners. Heck Brophy's Pub isn't even open for lunch ! ? ! ?
My suggestion is you find a Blarney Stone to kiss and get your St. Patty's day partying out of the way early, take a nap and get ready for the Gator/Calif. Santa Barbara basketball game.
In the spirit of the holiday, National Geographic News rustled up some facts related to St. Patrick's Day festivities. Take heart — they skipped the blarney:
• On St. Patrick's Day, some revelers will raise a pint of stout and wish their companions "Slainté!"—the Irish word, pronounced SLAN-cha, for "health."
