Fake St. Patrick's Day - TOMORROW!

This is Mike's St. Pat's shirt - from a few years ago.
Come one, come all to Ryan's Daughter, tomorrow at 3 p.m., for the 6th Mostly Annual Fake St. Patrick's Day celebration. We will be decked out and drinking - and also raising some money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

For those unfamiliar with the holiday, it started seven years ago, when I organized a small group of friends for St. Patrick's Day. We went to Ryan's Daughter on a Sunday afternoon, planning to meet post-parade revelers there.

But we were a week early. The parade wasn't until the following week - and we were at RD, all greened up and nearly alone. It was awesome.

We've gone back almost every  year since - and the party  has steadily grown. Friends from all parts of our our lives come - and they bring friends of their own. (It's also moved to Saturday, after one particularly fun Sunday nearly crushed us all.)

Last year, my high school friend Rasim asked why we weren't raising money for a charity. After all, if you're out on a Saturday afternoon, you might as well be doing something good, right? So this year, there will be a couple fun ways to encourage donations to the LLS - a Ryan's Daughter gift card raffle (thank you to RD for the donation!) and a tiny bit of swag as a gift to recognize donations.

So if you're in town, stop by! And don't forget your green!
