Green Goodness: Epic Fail

My "Old Navy Special" this year ;) Thanks Husbandy!

Ok, so maybe I was a little too ambitious when I attempted to post all my Green Goodness segments yesterday. I only managed one : Fail. Regardless, I hope everyone enjoyed St. Patrick's Day and got their "drink on" or "food on" or "parade on" or anything you enjoy doing every March 17th. We had a great night crawling around Sunnyside, Queens. While Manhattan looked like a green tinted scene from the Jersey Shore, we ventured off the beaten path to find a bit more authentic experience. To quote a very infamous celebrity on the choice of events- "winning!" We found a great new pub in the neighborhood, PJ Horgans on 42nd Street and Queens Blvd. With the exposed wood beams and vaulted ceilings in the dining room it was very cozy without being claustrophobic. The pint's were good and the Irish comfort food was very satisfying. Apparently the Chicken Pot Pie is amazing there but sadly it wasn't on the event menu that night. Boo. However, the Shepard's pie and the Chicken Curry we got to sample were great and although "The Best Burger" was not as advertised, it definitely held its own. I have to say, it was such a nice change from the craziness of Manhattan. Very few drunken obnoxious people, crowded but not overly so, and more family centric. We could actually maintain a conversation without yelling- say what!? After PJ's we hopped across the street to the Courtyard at 41st and Queens Blvd. It was a bit more crowded and crazy, but they had a live band singing pub songs which was awesome! Live music makes everything more fun. (Especially when in some of the songs you get to repeatedly scream "Rise up your kilt," like, how often does that happen?) All in all the night was a success, we got some sleep after, and I think most people are functioning quite well today for it being the day after St. Pats. Now how often does THAT happen?! Sláinte!
