St. Patrick's Day at the Duck

Photo from last year's festivities (Source)

On Monday I dropped by McGonigel's Mucky Duck to enjoy some of their St. Patrick's Day celebrations.

The festivities were a tad bit early for this Russian Orthodox admirer of St. Patrick, as I have to wait several more days for his Feast to officially fall on my Church's Calendar. : )

With the holiday occurring during Great Lent it made it difficult to refrain from all the great-smelling food, but fortunately there is a Russian tradition of allowing beer during the Fast. So I did sample some Guinness and Strongbow Cider in honor of the Feast.

Out of the many bands and performers I was able to catch some of the performances by Wyndnwyre, the O'Maoileidigh Irish Dancers, the "Celtic" Gypsies, and Clandestine.
