St. Patrick's Day

My local pub, Fidel Murphy's, claims to be the only Irish pub in the Caribbean. It's a necessity to make a big deal of St. Patrick's Day, so apparently they installed a cage this weekend for pub brawls. :-)

OK, really they just fenced-in an extended patio area.

Of course, there's always the local Music and Dancing (Control) Law and licensing issues to figure in. As St. Patrick's Day fell on a Saturday, closing was at 11:45pm on Saturday night, so as not to have public drinking on Sunday morning - at least, not *before* church. Friday night they had extended hours until 3am Saturday morning, so they did cover as many of the 24hours as they could.

While there's no local recycling program, I note that they did put a blue box on their extended patio:

Blue box reference ... way too funny! (And how much do I love your digital camera? No need for me to count the ways!)
