St. Patrick's Day

My least favorite day to live in New York City. Essentially, the city turns into a frat house. It's joyless and chaotic, like New Year's Eve, only prejudiced.

Totally and completely agree . . . and I said as much when I lived in an Irish boarding house in Woodside with eight Irish guys . . .

Loved much about the Irish, but the homophobia and ban of gay participants in the parade has gotta go, and I'll never attend until it does.

Probably not even then . . .

I found a great place to hide out from St. Patty's. It's called "The Coast of Utopia: Shipwreck". It's also joyless and chaotic, and there's some Irish people and even a little prancing leprechaun. There's also a reasonable possibility of some stranger vomiting on you, but at least it won't be Bud Lite.
