Drunkards near Cleveland, St. Patty's

Post by Resident Asshole » Thu Mar 14, 2013 12:47 pm

So, the wife and I are going to see They Might Be Giants in Cleveland on St. Patty's Day. Anyone going to be around the area? Beachland Ballroom is where the actual show is, but we will likely go out before and after the show as we have a hotel for the night.

Any recommended bars?

I suggest that you go to the "Favourite Bars" forum and check out "Massive Drunk"'s reccomendations. From memory he has listed at least 10 decent bars, from dives to classy joints, in Cleveland.

Cheers ya bassas.

Normally spend St. Patrick's with a group of veteran amateurs, but spent this year in work, then met my old man and my brothers for a curry and lots of booze. Qwality, so it was!

I've not a drop of Gaelic blood in me...

But I wore a Black Watch kilt yesterday, washed the night down with Tullamore Dew, and even practiced my bagpipes a bit.

I really enjoy being me. :-)

This St. Patrick's Day I discovered (to my dismay) that the Diageo Corp. has decreased Harp Lager's ABV to 4.5% and remodeled its label to resemble some sort of hideous mash-up of Bud Light and ZIMA. I know that Ireland's version of the logo has always been much plainer than the variety sold in the U.S., but something about this doesn't sit well with me. I assume that the beer has always sold well around this time of year, and it seems like bad business strategy to abandon the giant harp and celtic knot design. The worst part, of course, is that the beer itself is a watered down version of what it once was.

That is a damn shame, I liked Harp.

harp's not great.

Never really done st patrick's day. I don't believe in saints. I don't believe a man with a stick chased all the snakes away. I do worry that people get put off drinking by it. There's a lot of pretty uncool behaviour from the general public

my question to mr viking is......did the remainder in the base of your yard smash you in the face? or did one of the bystanders turn the bowl for you?

Also yeah, I worked St pat's day, not a massive big deal here in UK although like black friday they are trying to make it one

I drank it slowly enough that there was no bubble. There's a video of it somewhere. 10 minutes of shame

St. Paddy's Day

Post by TheDrunkardAnglo » Thu Mar 17, 2016 12:42 pm

Today I was reminded, as I bumped into a Muslim acquaintance of mine in the Library, "Today is your peoples day!" she said.

I replied "excuse me?"

"Your people! The alcoholics!"

Someone had obviously told her that my self-proclaimed title is "Bibitor Defensor" the English translation would be "Defender of the Alcoholics". I was humbled to know that I've finally achieved the alcoholic equivalent of Community Imam. I plan to host meetings where members of my congregation talk about the beauties of liquor. et cetera

Anyway I digress - Today is St Patrick's Day. A day for us all. Though I think it is noteworthy to mention that St. Patrick firstly wasn't Irish. He was from Cornwall, South West England and was captured by Irish Slavers. Secondly his name wasn't Patrick, it was Maewyn. Thirdly St. Patrick's Day was originally a day where the poor people of Ireland was forced to remain undrunk. I had read that St. Patrick was against alcohol consumption but I'm unsure if this can be properly verified.

Regardless now, my Comrades we have taken this holiday from the grips of teetotalers and made it for our own.

Now let us join together with our beverages and Drink. To Maewyn! You silly Cornish Bastard!
Major Strasser: What is your nationality?
Rick: I'm a drunkard.
Captain Renault: That makes Rick a citizen of the world.
