#TBT: St. Patrick’s Day happy hour

St. Pat 5This weekend we’ll meet up again for our annual St. Patrick’s Day borrel.  For #ThrowbackThursday, here’s a look at our gathering from 2 years ago!

Review by Andrew Kelly. This year was a special year as St. Patrick’s day, the national holiday of my home country, the Republic of Ireland, coincided with a Friday. So, the TIC team decided to combine the monthly borrel with a St. Patrick’s day celebration and, of course, have it at Ruby’s Irish bar.

Some of you might ask who is St. Patrick and did he invent Guinness? Well, no, he was a Welsh priest who brought Christianity to Ireland after the fall of the Roman empire. If you want more info on this, check out this Wikipage. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Patrick

So, St. Patrick’s day 2017 started like all big parties with the decoration in the party area in Ruby’s bar. Snacks were supplied and from 17:00 to 18:00, it was two pints of Guinness for the price of one. As they say back in my home town “ happy days”. Once every one had arrived, the guests were invited to learn how to make a baby Guinness which seem to have gotten the party started.

As everyone was enjoying themselves, I completed one of my bucket list items and that was to play in an Irish bar on St. Patrick’s Day. I only managed to do 3 songs, but the crowed seemed to enjoy it. The rest of the night was spent mixing with other pub goers in a Irish celebration were everyone was welcome.
