Just because the parade is over, and the novelty of wearing your very handsome special shamrock tie that you can only wear once a year has worn off, please don’t lose the magic of Saint Patrick’s Day. It lasts until midnight, people! There are still concerts to attend, there are plenty of Irish brews yet to sample, and there are plenty of Jameson specials around town. So don’t stop eating those Irish potatoes (seriously, they don’t go bad for at least two months), keep on that face paint, and for God’s sake, don’t stop drinking. You think Saint Patrick got all those snakes out of Ireland by walking in a straight line?
