Yes, we know Hoboken and New York City have big old St. Patrick's Day celebrations. Johnny's Irish, he knows. He also knows people have a tendency to advertise or be taken in for advertising for GREEN BEER. Nobody should ever drink green beer. The Lords of Ireland would never ever condone such blasphemy. The land that gives us Guinness, Murphy's, Beamish, and Harp does not sell green beer. Johnny long ago gave up the drink, but he knows damn well those drinking green beer claiming to be Irish for the day profane Ireland.
Johnny is also bummed he won't get a chance to photograph all the fine St. Patrick's Day festivities outside Conor O'Neills in Ann Arbor. He had fun with that last year with some of his pictures winding up on blogs as far away as Germany.
