Rewind 5

kingwyatt hosted a little St. Pat's party on Saturday night, featuring corned beef and whisky.

Yes, I know, a traditional Irish St. Pat's dinner is spring lamb and whipped potato with leeks, but I don't really care (and yes, I saw the Good Eats that explained why corned beef became popular with Irish immigrants).

Corned beef was great. I avoided the cabbage, but it looked pretty good. We brought two dozen oysters as appetizers, and the rest of the gang brought some really fabulous cheese and side dishes.

Then there was the whisky. Nobody brought anything I hadn't had before, but it was all good. We brought the tail end of a bottle of Lot #5 St. George Single Malt Whisky and a new bottle of Lot #6 to compare.

"Flux" and "Apples to Apples" were played, and a good time was had by all. K and I stayed overnight rather than driving home after all the whisky (well, it wasn't really that much), and headed home Sunday morning.

Who cares if it's inauthentic, like a lot of what we "plastic Paddys" do? I like corned beef, and cabbage, and will eat a potfull if given a chance. You can have the uisgebaugh, Andy lad; can't stand the vile stuff meself.
