Uh oh, look out — St. Patrick’s Day has fallen on a Friday this year!
It never seems to matter whether or not you’re of Irish descent. People of all stripes seem to love to use St. Paddy’s Day as an excuse to wear green, eat corned beef and cabbage and, most of all, drink Guinness beer and Jameson’s whiskey to excess — and SING!
Full confession: I don’t drink anymore. The time had come, after 40-plus years, when it just seemed like the right thing for me to do.
But that doesn’t mean, as a music addict, that I can’t enjoy great drinking songs every now and then. Lord knows there are plenty of them out there…
