With the Jameson Irish Whiskey Patty in the Plaza party presented by Bud Light coming up this Thursday from 5-10pm in Festival Plaza this Thursday night, we decided to do a little digging into the holiday known for green beer and pinching! did an interesting study with regard to the St. Patrick's Day holiday. We've all heard that everyone is Irish on St. Patrick's Day and apparently 33.1 million Americans claim to be Irish... and that's seven times the population of Ireland! With that being said, I'm Irish! Well, at least part Irish... after all, my first name is Erin which is another name for Ireland!  

With a mechanical bull and giant inflatable Twister at Patty in the Plaza, we'll be drinking our fair share of Jamesons and green Bud Light for liquid courage and it turns out we're not much different than the rest of the country since St. Patrick's Day is the fourth biggest 'drinking' holiday of the year. But please, be safe! If you plan to indulge, make sure you have a designated driver because 75% fatal accidents on St. Patty's Day involved drivers who have consumed twice the legal limit. 

By the way, be sure to wear your green Thursday night because if you're not, I promise you, I'm going to find you and I will pinch you!
