Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

St. Pattys Day Dinner4

I am going to be honest, I strongly dislike St. Patrick’s Day. It is kind of like Halloween in my book – it is a reason for some serious public drunkunness and nudity. (That is unless you have kids and then both of those holidays take on a whole different meaning) We live in a neighborhood that explodes when St. Patrick’s Day (or Halloween for that matter) comes along.

Last year, while walking the dog at 3 in the afternoon, I caught a drunk girl going to the bathroom in a neighboors doorwell. I mean come on! There are so many things wrong with that picture- I am still traumatized.

So in an effort to save myself, Luke and our friends from the chaos that ensues in SF for St. Patricks Day, I am having a St. Patty’s Day feast! The theme of the dinner is booze and beer. I figured we could celebrate St. Patty’s in our own “grown up” way.
