Fake St. Patrick's Day Is Tomorrow!

Scenes from last year's Fake St. Pat's
It's that time of year again - St. Patrick's Day season - when people drag out their best funny green t-shirts and green beads and drink more beer in a month than they do for the rest of the year combined.

I love it.

My friends' contribution to this messy month starts tomorrow, with Fake St. Patrick's Day - an afternoon of drinking and oysters, with a side dish of charitable giving, at Ryleigh's Oyster on Padonia Road.

This year, the party starts at 1 p.m. and is a fundraiser for the Dance Head and Neck Center at GBMC. Any and all comers are welcome - we'll be in the bar in the middle of the restaurant. It's always a good time.

Ryleigh's is donating 10% of what's spent during the party to the Dance Center and we'll be raising money a couple other ways, too, including a raffle for gift baskets including items donated from a bunch of very generous local businesses.

Those businesses include some of the best spots in and around Baltimore:
AntiGravity Fitness
Baltimore's Waterfront Partnership
Charm City Chocolate
Fox's Den
La Cuchara
Ladew Topiary Gardens
Loyola University Athletics
Nia Baltimore
Ouzo Bay
Prigel Family Creamery
Residence Inn in Hunt Valley
REV Cycle
Wells Discount Liquors
Wit + Wisdom

The baskets will include donations from these organizations, as well as other goodies, including a purse handmade by Alicia and her mom...and lots of wine and beer and liquor. Booze sells raffle tickets!

If you're in the area tomorrow, please stop in and say hi. It's a great cause and an absolute blast. Happy Fake St. Pat's!
