Yes, I know this is going up the evening before.
I promise you, that there will still be a touch of Guinness flowing through my veins as midnight passes to the 17th.
In the meantime…
Allow me the priviledge of introducing you to a local band here in Minneapolis/Saint Paul, The Tim Malloys.
These guys are the real deal, an awesome band that plays locally, and I am proud to have all their albums. And a hat. And a shirt that doesn’t fit, damnit.
I think listening to Neal on this track makes it pretty clear why I love these guys so.
The Mannyac and I spent my Bachelor’s Eve party with these guys years gone by… and we sat and chatted in between sets. A fine old time was had by me, that I’m sure they forgot by the next day, but that I’ll always remember fondly.
Happy Saint Patrick’s Day to all, my friends, no matter where you may be.
I shall hoist a few wee Guinness, in remembrance of thee.
Should your travels take you far from home, and the way be dark with gloom,
Still you know I’ll be right here, waiting patiently for you.
Okay, I can’t just leave it at that. So one other Tim Malloys song, aye? And if ye be local to the Twin Cities… go see them, and tell them the Big Bear Butt sent ya!
