St. Patrick’s Day 2009!

I love St. Patrick’s Day. It is my favorite holiday, by far! No gluttonous meals, no gift exchanges and no god! It’s just people dressing up in crazy green outfits, lots of great (Guinness) beer, parades, and pinches. It is holiday done right!

Kirsten and I celebrated at Bull Feeney’s in Portland. They had live music, Irish dancers and bagpipers. It was awesome. The place was packed with people who were festive, lubricated and in a partying mood. The food was awesome and the beer just the way we like it: smooth, dark and creamy.

Enjoy the pictures.

When I returned from feeding the meter there were three men hitting on Kirsten. Can you blame ’em?

  1. I agree, St. Patty’s is a great holiday. Great pictures, Brent. I had an awesome time today! I really like Bull Feeney’s.

    I love your hat. You’ll definitely have to get one of those kilts and those socks and wear them next year.

  2. @Kirsten – Absolutely!

    I had a great time with you, too, Babe. I always do. You’re especially fun after a couple of drinks have cracked the stress that constantly constrict you.

    Love the green you wore Brent! You got the ‘head tilt’ just right in all those pictures! Bull Feeney’s looks like the hot spot on Patty’s day. It doesn’t get better than good food, good beer, and good people!!

  4. @Kim –

    LOL. Not technically, but I think it looks okay.

    When you come next month we’ll have all three waiting for you.
