St. Patrick's Day

MARCH 17TH, 2015:  I did buy a plate of CB&C at Val's in Fox Lake, but didn't eat it as I was hoping there would be leftovers at Donovan's Reef.

We drove to Donovan's in Twin Lakes, Wisconsin, and enjoyed half price drinks (because we had been to the big celebration on Saturday.  Sadly, no CB&C for me.  They had run out.

Barb said they rowdy folks had taken a break around 7, but had recovered and come back at around 9 to continue being green.

Then drove to A.J.'s Horsin' Around in Round Lake Park, Illinois, on Washington Street and watched Terry and Greg Spizziri play from 3 to 6 p.m..  Even with the name Spizziri, they are half Irish and Terry sings a great Irish selection.  He describes himself as "Half Celtic and Half Garlic."  His mother was Irish and his father was Italian.

We were joined by Kevin and Kelly, two very Irish folks and Frank.

We had almost nothing but Irish songs with plenty of clapping along to songs like "Whiskey in the Jar."  Great time.  They had to leave right away at 6 as they still had to go to the Irish Mill in Mundelein to play.  They had played nine times since Friday.
