It’s St. Patricks Day and I’m Irish as hell, y’all. My family has always celebrated this holiday and I love that New Orleans is big on it too! The weekend’s festivities started off with my favorite Bearded Oyster march of the year, the Molly’s at the Market St. Pat’s parade! Two of my sisters are erstas as well so we donned our usual white and silver with the addition of some green and orange and partied through the quarter. Erin’s boyfriend was in town all week and was a shucker for the night! We did some serious jigging that night!
Saturday was the Irish Channel parade which is just the BEST. It’s also become an annual crawfish boil thrown by some of our friends that live just off of the route. Heaven, you guys. Seriously, it’s heaven. Nate has missed this day the past two or three years in a row now and it was so fun having him here.
I’m sitting in my shop now. It’s a surprisingly chilly day in New Orleans, especially for March, but I’m still rocking my green. Best outfit of the day definitely goes to my neighbor Peter though. Once quitting time is here I’ll be heading home for some corned beef, cabbage, and soda bread.
