St. Patrick’s Day isn’t until March 17, but you can begin festivities early with the St. Patrick’s Day Parade that will take place on Sunday, March 11 at 2 pm. The starting point begins at the Washington Monument and continues to Pratt Street and Market Place.
There will be a parade day brunch and an official mass before the parade. You can start your morning with an Irish breakfast for $25 per person that includes scrambled eggs, O’Brien’s potatoes, waffles, sausage, bacon, fruit platter, pastries, Irish brown bread, orange juice, coffee and tea. Bloody Mary/Mimosa drinks for $4. Reservations are required since seating is limited by calling Joanna Cox at 410-467-4447. Mass will be held at the Baltimore Basilica at 10:45 am.
Guinness is the most popular drink on St. Patrick’s Day, but did you know that a pint of it is only 198 calories which is less than wine and most light beers according to irishcentral.com. I think I’ll stick with the green beers.
You don’t have to be Irish to celebrate their culture. Come out with the family and enjoy the food, music, song and dance in downtown Baltimore. Don’t forget to wear green.
The forecast shows Sunday to be sunny and 70 degrees. What a great day for a celebration.
Top o’ the mornin’ to ya!
