St. Paddy’s day falls on a Saturday this year! Long gone are the days when we’d dump a shot glass of green food coloring into a pitcher of Rainier. You need a proper pint! Once a rarity here in the States, proper Irish pubs are now fairly common in these parts, and Americans demand a proper pint of Guinness, Smithwick’s, Beamish, and so forth. I know it’s a Dutch name, but CBS’s Scotty Vanderpool has some Irish in him, and has compiled a Google map of all the Irish bars he’s stumbled out of in the Seattle area for your perusal. Check it out here.
