The Ex-Pat

St. Patrick’s day is a time to think about loved ones and all things green.  It’s also a time to drink, in moderation, of course, pints of green Guinness.  I plan on going around Manhattan today in search of the best St. Patrick’s day cocktail.  So look out, I’ll be let loose across this city with my critic’s hat on.  I’ll report back and let you all in on what I’ve come up with. 

Very important: click HERE to make St. Patrick’s day an official holiday!  Don’t that sound peachy?
