It's almost time for a day of designer drinking, Irish-style. Here in Rochester, Guinness' heavy marketing of St. Patrick's day pays off in spades. Joe McBane of The Old Toad expects to go through 10 kegs of the stuff.
Our once-a-year Irish band, the Sisters of Murphy, will be doing our usual crappy show at Barfly on East avenue March 11, the day of the parade. I sing, Bruce plays bass.
Even though we should know better, we'll be drinking Guinness. Hell, at least you can't really color it green.
