One day a year simply isn’t enough to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day so we’re starting early. Our St. Paddy’s Milonga is this Thursday, March 15 from 9:15 pm to 12:15 am. Just music, dancing, food and fun. No lesson, no announcements, no fluorescent lights.

We are fully in the spirit. If you’d like to be as well, here’s what you can do; Start practicing your Irish brogue; Round up all your old shillelaghs and green derby hats; Check the garden for little people; Drink some green beer (no, never mind, that one’s yucky.); Look for rainbows.

Do all that and you’ll be completely Irish by Thursday. We hope to see you then when you’re at your most sentimental and lyrical best. Until then, we leave you with this traditional Irish verse:

May your thoughts be as glad as the shamrocks,
May your heart be as light as a song,
May each day bring you bright, happy hours,
That stay with you all the year long.
