So, as you know doubt have noticed, the seventeenth of March will soon be upon us. For most of us, this means:
-Shamrocks (not those annoying ones from CK4)
-people pretending to be Irish
-being able to get away with "Kiss me, I'm Irish"
Myself, I am only 1/4 Irish (1/2 Scottish, 1/8 English, 1/8 German, 100% Canadian), but I am proud of my Irish heritage. My family has made 2 trips to Ireland within the last 3 years, and has gotten in touch with distant relatives, traced their genealogy back to Captain Edward Tubman who came over to Ireland with the Orangemen. Strange, really, because all the Tubman's living over there right now are all catholics, while the ones that emigrated to Canada were all protestant.
This year, St. Patrick's Day falls on a Saturday, and while I'm not too sure whether or not my favorite watering hole will be open that night, there will no doubt be some rambunctious shenanigans.
I plan on buying a 4-pack of Guinness canned stout (or possibly a 6 pack of bottled Guinness, or even Guinness Extra Strong, if they have it), as long as it has a widget in it, i'm happy. And some good quality Irish whiskey too. I'm not too sure what brandto get, as it's a bit overwhelming (this is why I don't drink Scotch). The 3 most available brands here are
-Bushmills (probably the most expensive, single malt)
Any advice on this matter would be advised.
and of course, it wouldn't be St. Patrick's day without a little of the Greenage (and I don't mean no clovers)
