Friends, Degenerates, and Countrymen, lend me your ears!
/No, Mr. Van Gogh, I didn't mean that literally.
Anyway, while Vincent is sewing his ear back on, allow me to explain. Each Saturday during the football season, we seem to have an official EDSBS meetup thread.
This Saturday, Ireland celebrates a feast day to their patron saint. In all places but Dublin, this day a solemn, religious, affair.
But we are not in Ireland. We are in America. And because America appropriates things in oddball ways, we will be celebrating St. Patrick's Day by punishing our livers in a manner reminiscent of how Cromwell punished the Irish for continuing to obey the Bishop of Rome. Therefore, I have created this thread, so all of us degenerates and drinkers can post our plans and locations. Perhaps some of us in the same city will meet up. Perhaps we will warn each other away from shitty/expensive bars. Or perhaps we will tell the Aggie members of the commentariat to visit dangerous places in hopes that they are knocked unconscious and their organs are harvested. To each his own.
For starters, I will begin the day at Temple Bar, 3001 N. Ashland, Chicago. The bar is showing all the six nations rugby games that day, concluding with the Ireland-England tilt at approximately 12:00. After that, it's off to my friend's party (where I have stockpiled New Glarus products), and then on to whatever bars the majority wishes to visit, as long as my mode of dress will not get me tossed out.
Put your awesome St. Patrick's Day plans below.
