An Italian Party for the Irish
While everyone else is making corned beef and cabbage for St. Patty's Day, you can host your very own Italian fest
St. Patrick's Day always puts me in the mood for a party. Maybe it's the emerald green color splashed across everything or the thought of leprechauns and good fortune at the end of the rainbow. It's actually more likely that I am nostalgic for my college days, when I hung out with a bunch of Irish kids, and I would join them at pubs in Philadelphia to celebrate their day. I shouldn't dream of those good ole days because I would end up driving the others home because I didn't drink alcohol, and I would nurse them through their hangovers on the 18th. Still, there's something special about those carefree days, the singing, the dancing, the fun.
Nowadays, my St. Patrick's Day festivities have become far more low-key. I have a one-year-old son, which makes pub crawling extinct. Although, often, there is still vomiting, a result of drinking too much…latte. But I always have an itch to entertain during this time of year. Since I'm an Italian American who spends a lot of time in the Homeland, I make my get togethers more red, white, and green than green, white, and orange, if you know what I mean. So, here are some ways to have a rockin' Italian party in honor of St. Patrick's Day:
