Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I hope that things will be back to normal next year. I loved catching cabbages (and giving them away) on Magazine Street. I don't miss the "amateurs" getting drunk on green beer. I do miss going out for Irish Stew or Corned Beef and Cabbage. BUT I want to live to see future St. Patrick Days.

St. Patrick's Day revelers flouted instructions to stay at home during the outbreak of the new coronavirus, defiantly filling up bars in cities across the country and hopping between haunts.

Posts on social media revealed that many revelers were refusing to follow social distancing guidelines to limit the spread of COVID-19 and stay in on Saturday, with bars reportedly "packed" in cities including New York, Chicago, New Orleans, and Washington, D.C.

New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell tweeted a screenshot of a live video that showed police disbanding a crowd outside a bar called Tracey's on Saturday, just hours after the city announced its first COVID-19 death.
