I don't think I've ever really celebrated St. Patrick's day before, so I'm not sure how much it means to deem this 'the best St. Patrick's day ever', but all future St. Patrick's Days will have a hard time comparing with this one, I can tell you that much.
The Irish pubs here go all out, as you can imagine. They serve green beer, play Irish music, and are generally packed to the brim with green-wearing patrons. I wore my green H&M dress and Sandy wore her green earrings. She also brought her (green) boyfriend Blair, who was visiting from OSU on spring break. We love Blair (well, obviously Sandy does), and were so happy to introduce him to the city. We stopped by O'Malley's, Shamrock, and Republic (all 3 of which I'd recommend on St. Patrick's Day, or really any day of the year). After we'd tired of the crowd, Caroline and I headed to a Heimbar studentenfest at Humboldt. I had never been there, but that was just as fun as the pubs. And since Humboldt is just down the road from I.K., we walked home along the snow-covered path next to the Salzach, which, in case you are wondering, was just as magical as it sounds.
This is going to be one of those nights I look back on after all of this is over and want to re-live. Probably because I already want to re-live it now and it's been 1 day.
