The sign changed yesterday, all right, although a little later than anticipated because of a communications snafu. And another communications snafu may explain the lack of the McCormick's luncheon. Or maybe it was just Murphy's Law (Murphy was Irish, right?) in action.
Whatever, McCormick's will still be party central this weekend, with the annual St. Patrick's Day Parade -- this one with the theme "ShamRockin'" -- winding through downtown on Saturday, and the Runnin' of the Green taking off on Sunday.
In fact, McCormick's will be ground zero for that 7K event, which starts at 10:15 a.m., and includes a band, food (brought in by Shamrock, appropriately enough) and beer (35 kegs of Killian's) to keep the crowds entertained.
