Lush o' the Irish

We celebrated St. Patrick's Day twice this year.  On March 17th, we had my parents and Javier over for corned beef & cabbage, potatoes and cornbread.  Beer was enjoyed by all but my mother.
Then on Saturday, the 19th, we headed to Manhattan, KS to party with Doug & Mindy.  We were woefully unprepared for the drunken mess that was about to ensue.  In fact, we'd all (John, Javier & I) said, we wanted to have a good time but not get drunk.  And then I competed in the Belfast Bomber (or Irish Car Bomb) contest and hung out behind the bar at Doug & Mindy's and passed out shots.  Oh!  And let's not forget the Long Island Iced Teas I just had to have at the KatHouse. Quite a few of us spent the night at Doug & Mindy's beautiful home, we were at least prepared for that.  Needless to say, we had a good time.  It was a rough morning and we needed cheeseburgers & Cokes to fully recover...but if they'll have us, we'll go again next year!
