St. Patrick’s Day!

St. Patrick’s Day weekend is upon us! What are you doing to celebrate? Southie? Pub crawl?

Colin and I are heading home to Long Island for the weekend for my dress fitting, to pay a visit to my sister Kelly’s salon (I am in desperate need of some highlights!), and to hang with the family. We’ll be celebrating good ol’ St. Patrick at one of our favorite restaurants, the Irish Coffee Pub. Looking forward to it. :)

Some fun events going on around Boston:

*And if you need more suggestions, feel free to take a look at my CBS Boston post.

Sólás Irish Pub is the third top-selling Guinness location in MA, in the coziest nook on Boylston Street. Sólás never charges a cover and opens at 10 a.m.  Irish Specialties include corned beef and cabbage, shepherd’s pie, chicken curry, fish and chips and beef stew — yum!

Slàinte!

Slàinte!

MJ O’Connor’s Park Plaza has been serving corned beef and cabbage since March 9th and it will continue through March 18th. They’ll also have Irish breakfast, Guinness stout onion soup, Irish whiskey bread (sounds pretty amazing) and Kilkenny steak tips. Not to mention the Irish step dancing at 3:30 p.m. (I used to be an Irish step dancer — see embarrassing photo below) and live acoustic music from Martin Macatee at 4 p.m. Also, MJ O’Connor’s Westin Waterfront will have a live Broadcast with WROL, as well as acoustic music, Irish step dancers and Irish specialties served all day.

Dancing away!

Ned Devine’s party starts early — tomorrow, March 16th. Toucher and Rich will be joined by Guinness, Bushmills and 650 party people. There will be live music from Bareknuckle Boxers (12 p.m.) and Galway Guild (5 p.m.) — both from Philly. Their St. Patrick’s Day menu will include corned beef egg rolls, Irish breakfast sausage sandwich, and corned beef sliders on Irish soda bread. Best of all? They are giving away a trip to Ireland!

Ah, the homeland!

Ah, the homeland!

The Harp opens at 10 a.m.! There will be lots of great live music, plus plenty of Black and Golds (Guinness and Harp) before and after the Bruins game at 1 p.m.

Friendship, loyalty, and love

No excuses, blog like a champion

I have been such a slacker; zero blogging this weekend. I am ashamed of myself. Please accept my most sincere apologies. My new motto will now be, ‘No excuses, blog like a champion.’

Happy Spring everyone! I hope everyone enjoyed the BEAUTIFUL weather we had over the weekend, especially Saturday.

Now even though we had such a great day, it was hard not to be jealous of this picture message I received from my sister Kelly who was hanging out with my parents in Vegas. I may be a weeee bit jealous but I’m also really happy they’re having such a good time!

Kelly's lounging poolside and Colleen is jealous.

I started my Saturday off with a 9am appointment at the Robert Jason Salon in Andover. I didn’t want to be inside at all, but since my roots were taking over I needed some highlights asap (not a natural blond, big surprise! Is there such thing as a ‘real blond’ anyway?)

This was my first time to the salon – I have given up on my old hair stylist due to the fact that a visit to her salon is like a glimpse into the life of one of the ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ (or Revere.) Also, the whole experience never takes less than five hours and you won’t leave without hearing an inappropriate story such as the time she got into a screaming match with her boyfriend in the driveway, which resulted in her breaking his windshield. To top it all off, they had ice-cold water to wash your hair – not exactly a pleasant experience. She always gave me a great cut and excellent highlights, but it’s time to move on. When you feel like your stylist should be paying you, instead of the other way around, it’s time to find a new one.

Back to the Robert Jason Salon… It was awesome! Everyone was so nice and the girl who did my hair (Ashley) did a wonderful job. I will definitely be going back. I highly recommend it.

Next, I convinced Colin to come for a run. My body was tired but since I’m training for the half marathon I knew I just had to push myself. The whole time during the run I was wishing SO BAD that I was just going for a walk, or just sitting on a bench, relaxing, enjoying the sun. I kept cramping up and I had to stop and walk a few times. Colin was doing way better than I was and he hasn’t been training for a race. It was beyond frustrating. I literally had to say Hail Marys throughout the run in order to get my mind off the fact that I was running (also to have God and his team up their on my side in case I croaked.) When we finished our run I had a bit of a breakdown. I just felt so disappointed with myself; I felt defeated. Luckily Colin gave me a really encouraging pep talk to help snap me out of it. In the end, I knew I had to get my run in for the day even though I didn’t want to, and I did. I finished. I didn’t just convince myself that it was OK to walk the rest of the way, I didn’t give up. That’s what’s gonna help me cross that finish line in April.

After our run we headed back to Newton (where Colin lives) he went to play basketball and I went in search of new shoes for our night out in Boston. I tried on some really cool heels at Target that I loved but felt way too tall in. This girl standing by me complimented how great they looked. She was extremely nice and eventually encouraged me to get them! I am really happy I did, so I owe her a thank you. Maybe she’s reading my famous blog right now…

Here are the shoes –  http://www.target.com/Mossimo-Palani-Gladiator-Sandals-Black/dp/B002OO7Z5I/ref=br_1_4?ie=UTF8&frombrowse=1&searchView=grid5&searchNodeID=13836771&node=13836771&sr=1-4&searchRank=pmrank&searchPage=1&sessionID=182-8267774-4505357&searchSize=30&qid=

I’m roughly 6’5 in them, no big deal…

Saturday night a bunch of us went out for Danielle’s birthday. First we started the night off at Nuge and Christine’s (aka X) apartment; we had some drinks and a lovely dinner (including a cake, candles and a beautiful rendition of ‘happy birthday.’) Then we headed to Buskers which is over by The Garden. It was a really good time! The DJ played a lot of good music and we danced the whole time we were there. Total success.

My camera phone is a bit blurry. Xis lookin good though!

The lovely Rippa hailing a cab! (none of my friends have 'real' names by the way)

The beautiful birthday girl!

I heard about 3 new websites over the weekend and they’re awesome! Figured I would share…

When.com – http://www.when.com/ Lists all sorts of activities to do in your area, ranging from free events, sporting events, restaurant deals, etc.

Going.com – http://boston.going.com/ Similar deal with a more hip look to their website. People can post stuff they hear about and they also have a ‘recession busters’ section which lists cheap/free events.

Trails.com – http://www.trails.com/ ‘Your guide to the outdoors,’ You type in your area and they’ll give you places to explore on a nice day. Hopefully the good weather will continue. Fingers crossed…

Tourtracker.com – http://www.tourtracker.com/ The who-what-where-when of concerts.

Tomorrow the Soul Fire BBQ in Allston has an all you can eat wings special on Mondays from 5pm-10pm for $8.99. Get your wings however you like ‘em – buffalo, hickory smoked, spicy honey, Southern fried, apple bacon (featured flavor of the week.) http://www.soulfirebbq.com/ – 182 Harvard Ave, Allston, (617) 787-3003.

Today we took Lady to the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Lawrence for a little bit, then relaxed the rest of the day. Went to church at 5:30 where I got to see two girls who volunteered the same year I did. It was a very nice surprise! We then went to Whole Foods, I got my groceries for the week (more strawberries and grapes which I already taste tested, and they are delicious.) Then Colin made some amazing burgers paired with equally amazing sweet potato fries with a maple glaze. Ooooweeee it was a good dinner!

It’s been a busy weekend and I’m looking at a busy week ahead so it’s time to get some sleep. Goodnight readers, hope you had a great weekend :)

PS- We’ve been watching the new show Life on the Discovery Channel and I’m definitely gonna have nightmares of Komodo Dragons tonight.

He's coming to get you!

He was injured, injured bad

The Celtics/Knicks game last night was a fist-pumpin’ good time. Started off with a traditional Irish dinner (for St. Patrick’s Day) of pizza and beer at Halftime Pizza – it was delicious. We actually got a nice booth too which usually never happens, so we were off to a good start. 

The game was fun to watch, the Celtics played great – Paul Pierce had 29 points at the end of the game, KG not too far behind with 22. Last game we went to, the energy was low and people seemed disinterested. Fans were even booing the C’s. This time was very different, the energy was excellent; lots of fun. There were even Irish Step dancers at halftime! They were really good – very different from when I used to dance though. I guess I’m an old school step dancer, because from the amount of glitter on their dresses last night you would’ve thought we were at Studio 54. We didn’t do glitter. The boys especially did not wear rhinestone vests with hot pink ties (not that there’s anything wrong with that.) And wigs (they are so intense) didn’t make an appearance on the step dancing scene till I moved on to basketball in 7th grade. What happened to the old-fashioned way of curling your hair? I remember the good ol’ days the night before a feis (step dance competition) when my mother would patiently put curlers in my hair, I would sleep on them as if they were a bed of nails, and then in the morning my mother would not-as-patiently rip the curlers out as we rushed to get ready to leave (understandable – the whole process was relatively frustrating for both parties.) 

Anyway, I went to the Celtics/Bulls game last year (while I was volunteering in Chicago) on St. Patrick’s Day and now I went again this year. I was pumped I got to go, I think I’m starting a new tradition… Final score – Celtics 109 – Knicks 97 – must’ve been the luck of the Irish! 

Ready for the game

Adam & Colin ... I guess Phil didn't want to be featured on the blog ...

More jealousy ensues…. 

Free pastry day is next Tuesday, March 23rd at Starbucks! You have to buy a drink, then you get one free (nothing is really *free* is it?) It only lasts till 10:30am so hurry hurry. Heres the coupon – http://www.starbucks.com/blog/4983/free-pastry-day 

And, just because… 

I just went for a walk and it is GLORIOUS outside. I hope it stays like this! Pleeeeeeeeeease? 

Have a great day!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

The Chicago River

Last year when I was living in Chicago we went to their big St. Patrick’s Day parade. They dye the Chicago River BRIGHT emerald green – it’s pretty awesome! 

Ireland holds a special place in my heart. We’ve been over there a bunch of times to visit our cousins in Tipperary. We’re heading back this July for Meg and Matt’s wedding! Everyone is so excited! It’s only about 3 months till the wedding :)

Anyway, here are a few of my favorite pictures from Ireland in honor of St. Patrick’s Day.

How goes the battle?

Lady and I are ready for St. Patrick’s Day. Are you?

There are a ton of things going on tomorrow in and around Boston. If you are able to rage on a Wednesday evening, more power to you. Here are a few fun places you might want to check out:

1. The (Mc) Pour House – They’re serving a traditional corned beef and cabbage dinner for $7.95. There’s no cover, but there is Irish music. 907 Boylston Street, (617) 236-1767 http://www.pourhouseboston.com/

2. The Black Rose (one of my personal favorites) – Opens at 6am (jeekers, that’s intense!) serving up a free traditional Irish breakfast for the first 100 people. Beer served at 8am, Black 47 (Irish rock band) at 9:30am and traditional Irish music at 12pm. 16 State Street, Faneuil Hall, (617) 742-2286 http://www.irishconnection.com/blackrose.html

5. Lir – Opens at 10am with all the right ingredients – corned beef and cabbage, car bombs (at 10am? I’m not too sure that’s in anyone’s best interest…) and Irish music of course. 903 Boylston Street, (617) 778-0089 http://www.lironboylston.com/

6. Clery’sC – Opens at 11am with Guinness Beef Stew and Black Russians with Guinness floaters (quite a combo.) 113 Dartmouth Street, (617) 262-9874 http://www.irishconnection.com/clerys.html

Tomorrow we’re going to the Celtics game again; hopefully the luck of the Irish will be with them this time! I’m also hoping we’ll see some Irish step dancers! When I was a dancer, this time of the year used to be so busy! (back in my youth)

In other non-St. Patrick’s Day related news… My Dad shaved his mustache off. My Mom texted me a picture of it. His upper lip has been in hiding for years, and it has now been set free!

Also, I have a quick bone to pick. Yesterday I was passing by the elevators at work, there was an older man who works on my floor waiting there to head home for the day. I passed by, ready to say hi and he said ‘How goes the battle?’ ‘How goes the what-who-excuse me?’ was probably close to my response. And I’m sure I was bright red due to my lack of understanding.

Today, a very nice foreign man at work passed me by in the hall saying, ‘How goes it?’ in his thick accent (I actually still haven’t figured out where he is from – maybe I’ll just ask…) I was confused so I just smiled (this happens often, no big deal. I was still red though – that goes without saying.)

Listen, I appreciate the hello, I really do. I’m all about being friendly. But I’m tired and Mondays/Tuesdays are long days, I can hardly understand basic English nevermind whatever the hell you’re saying right now. I’m sorry, but what happened to just a simple ‘How are you today?,’ it would make things a lot easier if we could stick with this.

But, you know what? Beggars can’t be choosers and I rather these guys be friendly by saying hello in their own way rather than be rude and totally ignore me in passing. I might have been a bit embarrassed but at least I got a chuckle out of it, and you know what – with my confused expression – they probably did too!

Nice, I’m gonna make the train!… NOT!

You could say that missing the train is a good start to a rainy Friday morning, but you would be very wrong. I knew I had been running a few minutes late, but miss the train late? I didn’t think so… Little do I know.

My sister kindly drove me down to the station, we were rushing cause I was late as usual (being late is my thing, my special talent.) When we crossed the tracks I saw that the train just pulled up. Nice! I made it, I knew I would. Oh wait, it’s just pulling away from the platform, not pulling up? Right, of course.

So, I drove in today. I was all ready and didn’t feel like waiting around for the next train. Suddenly my dreary – miss the train – type lousy day turned around into a promisingly good day due to the fact that I remembered to charge my iPod last night. I truly don’t enjoy talk radio in the morning; I just rather not listen to people bitch before having my coffee (that’s reasonable isn’t it?) So I plugged my iPod in and performed a concert of about 10-12 songs for my non-existent audience. Rocking out in your car at 7am is good for the soul, you should try it sometime.

Anyway, here are some fun things I’ve learned about today…

Stoddards Fine Food & Ale just opened in the Downtown Crossing area at 48 Temple Place at Washington (617-426-0048.)

Stoddard’s is serving up American comfort foods along with an 80+ beer list. With all the vintage decor surrounding you, you’d swear you went back in time. Entrees include burgers, steaks, chicken pot pie, clams casino; all the classics. Learn more at http://stoddardsfoodandale.com/.

I really want to try Redbones. It’s located in Davis Square, Somerville and promises to serve up some delicious southern BBQ which is right up my alley. They also have 24 microbrews on tap to wash it all down. Good to know: Both catering and delivery are available as well as a gluten-free menu.

*Also, Monday – Friday from 4pm-6pm their appetizers are half price. Wings, chili, buffalo shrimp, corn fritters, etc. Check it out at http://redbones.com/.

Another good deal – Mondays at Sel de la Terre at 774 Boylston Street (617-266-8800) they offer a variety of $2 sliders from 5pm-7pm. They also offer a Saturday morning cooking class at either their Natick or Boson location for only $48 a person, not bad compared to what some other places charge!

More info on that, here: http://www.zagat.com/Blog/Detail.aspx?SCID=34&BLGID=26805

Possibilities for the weekend -

Tomorrow, Saturday March 13th is the 2nd Annual Spring Microbrew Fest at Ball Square Fine Wines from 2pm-5pm where you can try out 40 brews.

Tomorrow is also the 4th Annual Bacon Eating Contest at Atwood’s Tavern in Cambridge at 1pm. Their advertisement for the event reads, ‘Music! Booze! Bacon!’ Music + booze + bacon = 3 of my favorite things in the world. Seems like Atwood’s Tavern is promising us a very good time.

Don’t forget about the Southie St. Patrick’s Day parade on Sunday! Here is the map of the parade route -

http://www.boston.com/thingstodo/special/stpatricksday/parademap/

By the way, isn’t it great that it’s Friday? :)

Don’t use breast milk as a weapon!

Someone needs to tell Patrick Kennedy to take it down a notch.

It’s almost the weekend Paddy, relax!

Maybe he would be happier if he attended the Southie St. Patrick’s Day parade on Sunday..

 I’ve never been before, so it’s time to turn it up a notch (unlike Paddy, he’ll hopefully be turning it down.) I’ll be going this year to see what it’s all about. I’ve heard all the hoopla, so it should be interesting. It starts at 1pm on Broadway. Looking forward to all the drunken Irishness and pretend Irishness, because remember – everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day.

Before the parade I have some business to take care of. Colin and I, along with my sister Meg and her fiance Matt are running in the Ras na hEireann (“The Race of Ireland and United States of America.”) It’s a 5K, Irish themed race, starts at 11am in Davis Square, Somerville. There will be 5,000 runners! This is the 7th year it has sold out. I can only imagine the characters that’ll be there. Should be some great craic!

In Jay-Z related news, he’ll be performing at the Garden tonight. Unfortunately I will not be in attendance, however I’m figuring since I have to take the commuter rail home from North Station I’ll probably run into Hova and B and then they’ll most likely either offer me tickets or invite me to look on from backstage. I’m not sure if I’ll accept or not cause I do have to get to the gym tonight, so well see…

http://www.aceshowbiz.com/news/view/00031056.html 

Apparently Young Jeezy (who is opening tonight) is pairing up with Jay-Z’s better half for his upcoming album. Since everything Beyonce touches turns to gold, I’m prettty sure this one will be a hit. I’m excited for it.

They have released a full length trailer for Eclipse! Indulge:

Also – Congratulations to Rascal, The World’s Ugliest Dog!

Rascal is an 8-year-old 7lb Chinese Crested pure bred. According to http://www.ugliestdogs.net/worldsugliestdog.html ‘Rascal’s grandfather “Chi Chi” is in the Guinness Book of World Records for winning the most ugly dog contests and was undefeated with seven ugly dog wins.’ I guess it’s in the genes. Rascal has appeared on a number of TV shows and currently has two movies in the works, keep your eyes peeled for those.

More congratulations are in order for the beautiful Betty White who will be hosting SNL on May 8th. This will be White’s first time as host, and this will also make her the oldest person (age 88) to ever host SNL. According to Seattlepi.com [http://www.seattlepi.com/tvguide/416493_tvgif11.html] she’s bringing some friends with her. Apparently Tina Fey, Amy Phehler, Molly Shannon, Maya Rudolph, Ana Gasteyer and Rachel Dratch will be joining Ms. White, which should be pretty hilarious. SNL might just be funny again on May 8th, we’ll just have to wait and see…

And now, just a quick WARNING: Don’t use breast milk as a weapon!  http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,588369,00.html?mep

In restaurant related news, EVOO is now open in Kendall Square. Owned by Peter and Colleen McCarthy (nice Irish names) and now located (they just moved from Somerville) at 350 3rd Street, Cambridge. For reservations call 617-661-3866 or go to http://www.evoorestaurant.com/. Their entrees range from $25-$31 with everything from Roasted Organic Squash, Duck, Beef Tenderloin, etc. Personally I’m excited for the opening of their sister restaurant Za which will be located right next to EVOO (I believe they will also keep their Arlington location open as well.) Za will offer a variety of pizzas and salads along with a great selection of wine and beer, visit them at http://www.zarestaurant.com/index.html.

Lastly, originally found on http://www.bostonrestaurantdeals.com/free-medium-coffee-at-dunkin-donuts-every-monday-in-march/ Dunkin Donuts is giving away free medium coffees (hot or iced) every Monday in March.  There are 3 Mondays left, take advantage of their free coffee!
