hartford has postponed the st patrick's day parade

to NEXT saturday the 24th.

i did venture out yesterday early afternoon to
the half door

i figured i'd keep cathy company, since it was snowing so badly out, NO ONE would be in there. how WRONG i was. the worse it got outside, the MORE CROWDED it got INSIDE.

of course they got their tent up as they do every year, covering the patio. someone had to go out every 20 minutes or so and bang the snow off of the tent roof (that someone was me for most of the time, although others did chip in). i was going to drive down there now (well 4 am) to clean the roof off, but i just don't feel like it. i'm still soaked to the bone from YESTERDAY.

today (st patrick's day) is the ONLY day i would never venture there. it is a MADHOUSE. bands all day from 8 am till closing. irish dancing and of course plenty of guinness (and the like) along with a big arse irish breakfast and a corned beef and cabbage dinner later.

if you don't mind crowds and are in the mood to celebrate, DO drop by. they'll be more than happy to see (and serve) you!

Hartford Reschedules St. Patrick's Day Parade

HARTFORD, Conn. -- An unexpected nor'easter and heavy snowfall prompted officials Friday to postpone the St. Patrick's Day parade scheduled for Saturday on the streets of Hartford.
For some, it might not make much of a difference.
This year, nearly one-third of those surveyed said they planned to celebrate St. Patrick's Day by attending a party at their favorite restaurant or bar. However, another one-third of consumers prefer a quiet evening at home, with 33.9 percent staying in to make a special dinner..........
