We could not have asked for a more beautiful, perfect St. Patrick’s Parade Day here in Buffalo. Not a single cloud could be spotted. The sun beat down on the Queen City from dawn til dusk, treating all of us to temperatures worthy of t-shirts. I happily spent the day outside of my favorite local bar, Staples of Allentown, tended by my boyfriend, Fritz, who was dressed so fittingly he put Leprechauns to shame.
This was truly my favorite St. Patrick’s Sunday I’ve ever had the pleasure of enjoying. The smiles, laughter, conversations and near-rivers of Jameson and Guinness flowing from the bar were enough to make me wish that every weekend would be the same.
I started my St. Patrick’s Sunday at Staples with a shot of Jameson, my favorite Irish whiskey, followed by two cups of Irish coffee (black coffee with a heavy serving of both Jameson and Bailey’s, for me). Next were two double Bloody Mary’s – Fritz makes the BEST I’ve ever had (recipe in a post to come). From there, the day was filled with Irish Car Bombs and shots of Jameson, coupled with corned beef and loads of water to wash everything down. It couldn’t have been a better day.
