One of the first signs that life has changed in Denver: The annual St. Patrick's Day Parade, originally slated for March 14, was canceled early this week. For decades, the city has had one of the biggest official celebrations in the country...but all of it is off this year.
Still, smaller events are happening, and many bars will be pouring green beer this week...to both cheers and jeers.
It would be great to get a break from having to dodge puddles of vomit on the sidewalks in my neighborhood the next morning, for a change!
As a true Irish redhead... I will still be out there gunning for a one-night stand! I have a great track record and will not let this bullshit stop me.
I thought alcohol kills the virus?
Binging on alcohol lowers your immune system. Also, it’s poison.
As shitty as this is....at least there won’t be a blockade of bar hoppers?
I guess it's stay home and drink this year, huh?
Way to catch up, Denver. I've been cancelling it for thirty-plus years, now, personally...
