St. Patrick's Day 2014

Omnivore - Atlanta St. Patrick's Day 2014

The ultimate green holiday is here, and all of a sudden everyone and their momma is Irish. Every year without fail, everyone is drinking Guinness, shooting car bombs, and chowing down on corned beef and cabbage - 'cause that is what the Irish do. According to Forbes.com, America's population counts for a whopping 7.2 percent of Irish ancestry with all the "Irish heavy" cities and towns being in the north. So will Atlanta nail the Irish traditions or totally fail by dying everything green and sticking shamrocks all over the city? Who are we kidding? At the end of the day, it doesn't really matter as long as there's enough Jameson to go around. Cheers to St. Patrick and the Irish. Now let's go get drunk.
