St. Patrick's Day 2011

For all intents and purposes I think that for most St. Patrick's Day is the "Hallmark Holiday" for bars, but I'm okay with that. This year, my St. Patrick's Day was quite eventful.  I actually cooked up my corned beef on Sunday (after reading that you have to cook it for one hour per pound, I wasn't willing to cook it after work and have dinner around 9 or 10).

On Thursday, I woke up early, went to the gym and then headed off to meet some co-workers at Brew it Up! (potential client) in Sacramento.  We enjoyed some great Irish beers (including a green one); hung out with Mark S. Allen from Good Day Sacramento (see all clips from "Kegs & Eggs") and the people from Now 100.5; and of course ate a great breakfast.  The breakfast consisted of eggs, an Irish (English) muffin and corned beef hash. A co-worker and I also had a great desert ... an Irish Car Bomb.

After getting back to the office and working for a few hours we were treated to a fabulous lunch with all the "traditional" fixings.  Corned beef, cabbage, carrots and potatoes, potato soup and Irish break (aka French bread from Costco).  We then had what I will call the Irish version of a root beer float, it was very tasty.  After our successful pumpkin decorating contest in October we had a potato decorating contest. "Luckily" everyone was a winner - just one of the many perks of working at AugustineIdeas.
