Grab a leprechaun and head out to O’Dooleys Pub, because tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day. I’ll be hiding in underground bunker, as it my opinion that it is the worst faux-holiday of the year. But we realize lots of people use March 17th to get their drink on and of course, look cute doing it. The beginning and the end of my St. Patrick’s Day celebration has been picking out these seven green dresses under $100 that will still look cute covered in Guinness-scented barf. And yes, I did keep in mind that dry cleaning bills are a bitch.
Ah, St. Patrick’s Day. There is no reason for everyone to celebrate you but everyone is more than happy to do it anyway. And there are few things in life more deeply stupid than that.
First of all, no one knows who St. Patrick is, but who cares! Let’s all just get super wasted and mumble something incoherent about the Irish!

Happy almost St. Patrick’s Day, people! The big day is tomorrow, so make sure to wear green and avoid getting pinched by strangers.

It’s St. Patrick’s Day- the annual drinking holiday! While it might not seem like a good idea to pound back a bunch of green brew, a new study found that beer is the best alcohol for your brain. Just in time for today’s festivities, researchers from Germany’s Göttingen University published their claim that the hippocampus, the part of the brain responsible for memory and spatial tasks, is 10% smaller in wine and liquor drinkers than in beer drinkers. The study’s scientists believe that the B vitamins and folate found in lager lowers levels of hymocysteine, which is known to cause heart disease, strokes, and dimentia. So ask your doctor if beer is right for you. Side affects may include puking, flashing, and bad dancing. Cheers! [Dethroner] Keep reading »
