St. Patricks Day in the Twin Cities
If you have never gone out to one of the many fine Irish pubs in St. Paul and Minneapolis to celebrate St. Patty's Day, what you are missing is the heated tents. Heated tents are a fine Irish tradition dating back to the early days of Minnesota when the Dakota natives invited Irish settlers into warm teepees to share a beer by the fire.

♣   St. Patrick's Day Events in the Twin Cities - 2010    ♣
St. Patrick lived and died 1600 years ago.
They say he drove the snakes from Ireland. I say there never were any snakes in Ireland.
They say that's a metaphor. I say O'.
