March 17 – Kiss me I’m Irish!

Love the Bagpipes!

 

St. Patty’s Day in NYC is a big deal, and apparently this year’s parade was the biggest ever – there were a lot of high school and college bands, and men in kilts serenading an Irish heritage.  We watched the parade from in front of Mayor Bloomberg’s house ahem, mansion and drank Irish coffees that Missy made for us.  I was able to meet up with Angela downtown as well and say hello to her sorority sisters; they were all decked out in green and excited to be celebrating in the city.  Poll for my male readers: Would you wear a kilt for a day (in public) as a challenge?

I love being Irish!

Go mbeannaí Dia is Muire duit,

March 16 – DC to NYC

Walking past the Guggenheim

 

After a long drive to NYC, Madison and I were thrilled to be back for a weekend visit. We started the trip off perfectly with dinner and drinks with Miss Sarah and Pete at a tapas bar on 2nd Ave. We all loved the food, and my glass of  Argentinian Malbec hit the spot after a stressful trip. This photo is actually from Saturday, when we were walking to the St. Patty’s Day Parade.
