Tomorrow, March 17, expect to see hordes of drunken people of all ages stumbling down city blocks, yelling nonsensical jibberish. Also look forward to bars and taverns packed to the brim with red-faced lushes gripping pints of Guinness and other assorted beers. And, best, of all, girls wearing tight green T-shirts with four-leaf clovers painted on their cheeks. What does it all mean? Some sort of eco-friendly “go green” campaign spun out of control? Nope. It’s St. Patrick’s Day, of course!
Is there any better day of the year to pick up chicks inside your local drinking hole? What’s supposed to be a religious holiday honoring one of Ireland’s most recognized patron saints has devolved into the biggest drinking day of the year. Not that we’re complaining, though—our green hoodies and green-lined sneakers are already cleaned and primed for action. The luckiest of men will bag an Irish beauty queen who resembles any one of the ladies featured on the following countdown revering the 50 Hottest Irish Women. Dudes stricken with beer goggles, however, will most likely end up inviting transvestite leprechauns back to the crib. The moral of the story: Drink responsibly this weekend, fellas.
