Top Five Wednesday: Four Leaf Clovers

[ 0 ] March 17, 2010 |

St. Patty’s Day;-) It’s that time of year again when all the Pubs bring out their best Irish pipes, beers and green treats. It’s also the middle of the week so you may need a game plan on how to down all that beer and still have a lucid head on Thursday. This weeks Top Five Wednesday is a list of things to do on this lovely St. Patrick’s Day and how to recoup…check it:

1. Good Luck Charms– Since plenty of drinks will be had later in the day, starting off with a good cupcake might be a wise idea. Start slow. Hello Cupcake unveiled their Bailey’s Irish Dream cupcake just in time for St. Patrick’s Day and is available until March 21, 2010. Think dark, moist Guinness chocolate cake topped with Bailey’s Irish Cream frosting and a sugar shamrock. We love treats with booze:-) Try one for $3 or share a dozen for $33.

2. Green MilkZ Burger is celebrating the day with a lucky Chocolate Mint Milkshake for $.99. When you go to the register, just say “Shamrock Shake” and this should be the code word to unlock all the goodness of this milkshake…we don’t know but for $.99 and chocolate mint, this might be all the luck you need.

3. Drinks!– There will be plenty of places to get into all the St. Patty’s Day fun you want. A few places to think about dropping by for some good beer, music and Irish food are: Nanny O’ Briens, Duffy’s, The Dubliner and Fado’s. If those aren’t enough for your celebratory spirit, Againn is having an evening of all things Irish including Irish coffees, Irish fare and a station devoted to Irish beer.

4. Hangover solution– After drinks, there must be bread to soak up all the alcohol. Founding Farmers serves breakfast Mon.-Fri. (*8 am-11 am) with a full menu that includes various hash combinations, 4 types of Eggs Benedict and “The Hangover Special”. The Hangover Special includes a three-egg Pimento cheese omelet stacked with hearty beef chili, onions and Tilamook cheddar cheese for $12. This should cure your aching stomach and maybe throw in a nap to really get the full effect.

5. Recovered and Recap– The pictures are developed or they’ve been added to Facebook and everyone has been tagged. Time to recap the list of events on Wednesday night i.e. what happened to my scarf?? Did I really kiss him/her??…Brunch is in order to discuss these details. A few places to think about: Tabard Inn, Acadiana and Open City.

*Smiles* For some reason the Black Eyed Peas song “I Got a Feeling” is going thru our head…tonight’s gonna be a good night!! Be safe and have a Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
