Here in Boston, it’s hard to ignore St. Patrick’s Day. If you live here, you know just what I mean.
From the annual parade in Southie (complete with local politicians belting out Irish ditties at breakfast), to the week of shows by hometown boys the Dropkick Murphys, to the tourists trouncing around the city wearing giant bright green hats (or shirts, or big plastic sunglasses).
If you’re in the city, here’s my guide to Boston’s Irish pubs. (If you’re not, take a peek as a tourist. There are plenty of photos.)
If you’re looking for a little last-minute inspiration in your own kitchen, here’s a collection of recipes to help you throw together an Irish-inspired feast of your own, including several that feature Guinness stout.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
