Doing Our Irish Thing This Past Weekend-- Part 1: Parades, Bars and CB&C

SATURDAY, MARCH 14TH:  Saturday, i went to the Johnsburg, Illinois, Business Expo at the high school and then to the Lake Villa St. Patrick's parade where I used to deejay for many years before I retired.  Went to Galatti's which had replaced the olf George's Cedar Inn where I played.

Then to the VFW hall.  The parade was ok, but didn't have a bagpipe band or any Irish dancers.  Come on, you have to have those two things in a St. Patrick's parade.  They did have a guy in St. Patrick costume walking ahead of the parade, but I didn't know St. Patrick wore sunglasses.

Then, Liz and I went to Donovan's Reef in Twin Lakes, Wisconsin, for corned beef and cabbage.  It was some of the best we ever had ($9.50 for a huge plate).  It was just 3 p.m., but that place was already getting loud and packed.

Then, we drove over to the Twisted Moose in McHenry to watch the Blackhawks game and sure had a great time watching them break a 2-2 tie to demolish the San Jose Sharks 6-2.

Last stop was at Sunnyside Tap in Johnsburg where we had great talks with the patrons.
