Happy St. Patrick's Day



I got started early.

It's officially on Thursday but the weekend before usually gets the beer flowing and pints tipping.  If you are interested in my connection with St. Patrick's Day please check out my earlier post.
You don't need to be praising a Saint to enjoy a good pint of Guinness.  But praying and drinking can go together at times.

Wow, that just Pavloved me into an immediate thirst for beer. But I'm scheduled to have champagne on St. Patrick's Day.

I am usually praying after I drink.

I agree! That's why I switched from Baptist to Catholic! (Well, it was one of the reasons... )

Never heard that as a reason before - interesting. thanks

lisleman said...

yeah been there - can be rough at times

lisleman said...

I thought you were more of a wine person. Have you tried Guinness?
thanks

I have but I don't like it. I like very light crispy beers in the summer (like Corona) and pale ales and IPAs in the winter.

It seems like praying and drinking go together more often than not, and I say that having been raised an Italian/Irish catholic. Pasta and potatoes, all the way!

Unrelated to this post, but I was also born in a city famous for its prison - Rahway, New Jersey. In fact, it's such a famous prison that the Traveling Wilburys referenced it in their Tweeter and the Monkey Man song. Lucky us.

This is me, too. I'm a big fan of the Blue Moons, the Stellas, and the IPAs, just can't get into the Guinness (the Mulligan side of my family are spinning in their graves, I'm sure).

Stella . mmm. I'd feel worse about it except that my grandfather - a Kelly - also drank paler beers.

Truly, the world's best guinness is served in Eire, go there for a holiday and help their beleagured economy.

I'm sure it's more known on the east coast (and maybe in other types of circles) but I had not heard of Rahway Prison. Coming from a prison town helps remind you of consequences on your path through life.
thanks for sharing.
