For this year’s St. Patrick’s Day on March 17th, 2013, I had the honor of hosting a small ‘soiree’ that brought together new friends, great assortment of foods, and even shots of Jameson Irish Whiskey

Known as an Irish religious feast day, we couldn’t help but serve various types of good eats; so we made it a potluck! From stout beer cupcakes (with a whiskey chocolate ganache center and Irish cream frosting) to homemade pizza, I think everyone went home with a happy belly. Throw in some green and it’s St. Paddy’s Day, right?! (Check out paddynotpatty.com, thanks Kari!)

A special guest who attended was local artist and sculptor, James Kelsey. A peak into our conversations include topics like local music and art gatherings, or lack thereof. A lot of inspiration and admiration was tossed around. Check out James’s work on jameskelseystudios.com.

Here is James (right) attempting to play an accordion at the party! Good people, accompanying each other with laughs and a good time =)

With everyone smiling, munching, drinking, and even sitting around a fire, I’d say the night was a success. This concludes that in order to throw a successful St. Paddy’s Day, you need: 1.) Food 2.) Drinks and 3.) Green. Also, here’s a list of Irish slangs, so what are ye waiting for? Don’t be a gobshite and up the yard!
