Martini Mike's St. Patrick's Day Extravaganza!

OK, so anyone who knows me knows I love St. Patty's Day. Because my middle name is Patrick? Maybe. Because I'm Irish? No. Because I'm not even a little Irish! Although they say everyone's Irish on St. Patrick's Day. Well grab your shillelagh and come oooon down. There may be some pinching going on. But not because you forgot to wear green!

With the death of the annual St. Pat's Day Parade here... so goes my annual post parade private party. Much like my Xmas party... we are bumping up to a bar so there's more room and I don't have to shake the drinks! This may be the hottest  event I have promoted yet. I have acquired sponsorship from Jameson Irish Whiskey and Guinness. Needless to say there will be great drink specials! There, I said it anyway. Killian's, Guinness, Jameson at the very least will be on special. Now I can't promise a "special" but I am sending some big goons over to speak with a fella named Wes about ordering some Harp and/or Smithwick's from the Guinness rep too (same company). Ahem. OK, I was just going to ask him politely to be honest. I just laughed out loud but refuse to say "lol" in a blog. Damn.

FREE entertainment! Everybody likes something FREE right? And everybody wants to see some bagpipes or something on St. Patty's right? I have the hottest pipers in town in my pocket. Stop. Don't touch that. I need that roll of quarters for laundry. Mac-Tire of Skye Pipes and Drums will be making appearances throughout the afternoon and evening. This is the only place you will likely see them in Nob Hill other than an unnamed venue way at the east end because it was a package deal with their uptown location.

The finest Irish Balladeer west of the Mississippi, Gerry Muisener,  will be playing at 5:30. Garage Rock Gods "Sleestaks" will be playing a raucous set of drinking songs at 8 PM. They will be followed by other local favorites of a slightly different flavor... Vertigo Venus (Sponsored by Guinness) at 9. In between all this madness and revelry I will be your DJ. You will be subjected to your favorite Irish and/or Rock tunes from the 80's to the present. That's right, you heard me. No "House", "Techno", or other late night DJ type stuff until 10 PM. At 10 PM we will usher in the late night with DJ Flo-Fader. Some time between 9 and 11 the "Jameson Girls" will be around with shwag and booze. Guinness will also be around some time handing out the shwag and such.

              (Me & Sally Supermodel are big fans)

Non musical guests will include The Irish Freedom Committee. Support the families of Irish Republican Political Prisoners! Hmmm... and anyone else cheated out of a parade this year may very well be here! Give us your tired, your green, your thirsty! No marching required.

"Where is this magical event?" you might be asking yourself. A place called imbibe is the epicenter for this extravaganza. Conveniently located in the historic Nob Hill district. On Route 66/Central Ave. just a stone's throw from UNM. There's smoking allowed, legally. And there is a fine ventilation system for you people who are whining right now. Maybe, hopefully, it will be nice enough to have their garage doors open too. And let's not forget their beautiful rooftop patio. Do some people watching from the railing! Make fun of the guy I wouldn't let in.

Can you handle a good time? Forget the pub with no view. Forget the other worn out old pipers. This is the place to be! More details to come as they unfold... or maybe I'll just surprise you! Take the afternoon off and come enjoy the Irish spring. Follow the sounds of laughter and the scent of a shot of whiskey.
