A Brief One from Doug Draper at Niagara At Large
Posted on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17th, 2023
It’s St. Patrick’s Day again when trying to arrest every reveler drinking beer on the hood of a police cruiser is an exercise in futility.
There just aren’t enough stockades to put them in.
I always know St. Patrick’s Day is near because my inbox is suddenly filled with news releases from colleges, universities and other government agencies urging people to keep their drinking under control.
Good luck with that. You’re more likely to see your first unicorn before going to a St. Patrick’s Day party or parade where the drinking is under control. More likely the green beer will be flowing like water over Niagara Falls.
That is not a knock against St. Patrick’s Day. I have love in my heart for the Irish people and fond memories of all my years of attending the St. Patrick’s Day parade – one of the largest on the continent and this year’s being held starting around the crack of noon Buffalo’s Delaware Avenue, this coming Sunday, March 19th
I want to leave you with one of my favourite songs by one of my favourite Irish musicians, Van Morrison. The song – just one of so many great ones ‘Van the Man’ has gifted us – is called Bright Side of the Road.

Have a Happy and Safe St. Patrick’s Day, and watch the drinking kids – Doug Draper, Niagara At Large
