St. Patrick’s 2012
Any plans for St. Patty this year? Each year people get together, they go to the Pub, and they drink green beer and have fun. Corned beef hash, shepherd’s pie, cabbage and Irish beer are essentials for any authentic Irish party. Plan on staying home and having a party, you can make any of those dishes. I personally do not go out and make an authentic Irish meal, but I have thought about what I can make to at least have the color green it. I was ordered from our group’s director to bring scalloped potatoes…. Any way I can make that look IRISH? LOL
In any event, wearing green is the key essential, and since we might be going in the pool, I’ll have to have a green towel or a green cover up for my bathing suit, if you are reading and you don’t live in Miami, well it’s practically summer here already so bathing suites are in. If you plan on going out there will be an early party at Fred B. Harnett Park in Coral Gables featuring Irish food, musical entertainment, craft vendors, kids activities and a full-service bar, Let the Irish Festival BEGIN! Party later on in the night at John Martin’s on Miracle Mile in the Gables which is always a hot spot, they usually start around 4pm to midnight on Salzedo Street with live music and in the meantime you can have traditional Irish food starting at 11:30AM in the restaurant. There are also other Irish pubs you can get to, there is Playwright Irish Pub & Restaurant which is located in Miami Beach, Finnegans on Ocean Drive, Fado Irish Pub in Mary Brickell Village and much more. You can search for different pubs in your area on Yelp.com – One of my favorite places to look up ratings and close by vicinities. You can do this in any area you are in.
I would love to hear what festivities are going on in your area…..
Happy St. Patrick’s everyone….
