Still stuck in my office building. It's near "Dogtown", a little Irish ethnic area. They have a huge parade today and even larger parties after the parade. I heard many of the streets are closed, so will have to try to think of a plan.

I'm not much of a drinker (understatement of the year), so not thrilled when looked out my corner office window and saw guys peeing on the building next door of our sister company.

Heading out. One of the main roads to our burb is supposedly closed, plus there are reports of quite a few accidents around here (gee, wonder why). I'm a total St Patrick's day grouch, no green on me today. I think it's a result of year after year of the frustration in this area. Took me a lot longer to get to work today. The streets were clogged.

Sorry for the St Paddy's grumble. Hope everyone else has a good day. :D

This sounds more like a Whiny Zone thread. :D

Off-topic, SLW, I have a PM for you & SR coming your way tonight.

It'll really be whiny if anything happens to the almost new car on the way home. Heading out now and braving all those green hued party goers. :D

I'm not Irish though the red hair makes people think that I am and so I'm not much into the ethnic level of this event. I forgot to wear green last year and heard about it ALL DAY LONG so I didn't make that mistake again. We did eat corned beef and cabbage. I just now opened a frosty adult beverage but it is not Irish, it's German. I never go out on St. Pat's. It's too dangerous.

I feel your pain.

I hate Cinco de Mayo for most of the same reasons: drunks, traffic, random peeing. :mad:

More important, no drunks dressed in green on the hood of the car. :D

Drat, wanted to go workout tonight and sit in that eucalyptus steam room. Took me forever to thread through the side streets.

I dealt with more then one customer today that had a few green beers in them....this started about noon

Ginger, many Vegas establishments were saying "Redheads drink free" :D

A local casino had a huge St Pat's Buffet for five bucks....I ate way too much, from corned beef to shepard's pie...it was all really good.

No green beer. I did have a glass of milk & a cup of coffee with the meal.
