There's a holiday or something coming up. So we asked, "What's your favorite thing to do on St. Patrick's Day?"

Sampling the finest in Irish cuisine, such as poor man's food and blood pudding. Yes, those are the actual names of actual Irish dishes.

Meet in the Street at Claddagh's. Kristen and the Noise — my favorite cover band from my days at Delaware — performs on Saturday, and as always, there will be a tent so rain plays no factor.

My name is Mick. I'd be disappointed with myself if I wasn't out drinking at least one … or 10 beers!

There was a young dame of Charm City,

Who forSt. Patrick's Daywanted some whiskey.

She went to the bar,

That wasn't too far,

And with each drink got increasingly s---ty.
