It’s easy being green

Saturday, March 15th, 2008

Once again it’s time for the day of the year when (in some parts of the world, at least) green has less to do with the environment but a lot to do with party: it’s St Patrick’s Day!

To make sure you get your share of green beer and other traditional drinks, Patrick Malloy’s opens at 8 AM, not just on Monday March 17th  but also on the Saturday and Sunday before as well. They will serve a breakfast they call Eggs and Kegs, with $4 pitchers of Bloody Mary and Screwdrivers flagyl tablets.

If you never been out in Hermosa Beach on St. Patrick’s Day, be prepared for crowds and lots of “happy” people. Some of the pubs actually remove all tables to be able to let in more people and they have beautiful and sexy drink girls making rounds to make sure you get your fill even if you can’t reach the bar. It’s an experience …

If you’re not into the bar scene, maybe you like a parade instead. In Hermosa Beach, it starts at 11 AM Saturday 15th at the Pier Plaza. You can expect to see plenty of floats, marching bands, and classic cars. It usually draws roughly 3,000 spectators, so come early.
