St Paddy's in the Grove

All work and no play make Julie a dull girl. Our little village of Elm Grove is a haven for St. Paddy's fun. O'Donoghue's, a local Irish pub, is the center of all things Irish. This year the quiltie ladies, or shall I say.. lassies.. indulged in an early toast at the pub to avoid the crowd.

Today, Frank and I enjoyed our 2nd annual Irish Boiled Dinner lunch at the Silver Spur. Everyone is Irish on St. Patrick's Day and the Spur knows it's meat. The brisket is awesome and the portions ample. We had enough leftovers for dinner.

To round out the festivities, we stopped at Le Cakery for Highlander Grogg coffee and some delectable Bailey's Irish Cream cupcakes - YUM!

No matter what the fare, there is always something good to eat and drink in Elm Grove!
