Tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day. One of 2 of my favorite holidays (the other being Cinco De Mayo, but that's a different post altogether).

Over the past number of years, St. Paddy's day has fallen in the middle of the week, making it difficult to properly celebrate without calling in "sick" to work the next day.

To overcome this situation, on the way home from work I would stop in to the one local Irish pub on the southside of Atlanta, hoist a green beer or two, and then head home. I would ensure that I had already procured some fine Irish Whiskey, or perhaps a sixer of Harp.

And this was when part 2 of the tradition got started. Pop the Boondock Saints DVD into the player and hunker down for a mello Irish night.

But lo and behold.......3/17/06 falls on a FRIDAY this year! Oh, the possibilities. But what to do? Seems all the good places to go are in Buckhead or the Virginia Highlands. A mere hop, skip, and a jump from the office, but a good 50 miles from the house. There's no way I would be able to drive back, and I can't even begin to imagine how much a cab would cost.

And without either DVD nor DVD player, I can't revert to traditions past.
I'll have to start putting some serious thought into this. Any suggestions?
