Gals, my favorite day of the year is ALMOST here!
Myself and other Boston JUGs are veterans in the St. Patty’s Day sport. Whether you have grown up in the area or recently moved to our great city (only one of two where the 17th is considered a legal holiday), here are the essentials you will need for a fun, celebratory day with your favorite guys and gals for the ultimate Sunday Funday!
1. If it is still possible, take off Monday the 18th. You earn vacation days for a reason, right?! Luckily, here in MA, Evacuation Day is often a gift from employers. If you do have to work, take it easy and consider this a lesson learned for next year!
3. On Sunday, head to Southie. Even if you have never been, don’t let these characters deter you. This mostly-Irish neighborhood is THE place to be.
5. View the one of the oldest parades around (unless the DJ at your party is spinning jams so great you just can’t leave the yard/yahd), see the parade route prior to choosing your spot.
7. Make sure you get home safely, whether it is walking with a group, taking public transportation or cabbing it.
How do you plan to honor the homeland? Be sure to follow up on twitter and instagram for updates from our weekend of celebrating!
