Happy St. Patty's Day!!
Yes it's actually a holiday post. Sláinte, y'all!
When I was living in Baltimore a couple years back, I was lucky to be able to hang out with my uncle Don on a few occasions. Usually we'd hit the Brewer's Art on Charles St. for their amazing french fries and whatever seasonal beer they'd just concocted. One time I met him at J Patrick's in Locust Point for what I think was called a Ceili. There were about 6 musicians jamming out the jigs and it was pretty furiously uptempo. I was a smoker at the time and all that reelin' around was a bit rough on me. Don though, despite some accumulated goodness around the midsection, turned out to be pretty spry for an old guy. This is more or less what I saw that night:
heh, it's great to be Irish. Now how's about a kiss, wifey?
