Happy St. Patrick’s Day! For those of you who are Catholic, the day happens to fall on a Friday in Lent, but if you’re a resident of the Archdiocese of Washington, fear not! The Cardinal has given us dispensation, freeing us from our obligation to abstain, so go ahead and have that side of bacon with breakfast before going to work or to wait in line at LuLu’s for Kegs and Eggs 7… Of course, the Archdiocese did say that Catholics who take advantage of the dispensation are encouraged to substitute another form of sacrifice, which could be interpreted as giving up the ol’ alcohol for a day. Let’s see, meat or alcohol… I think I’ll drink instead. Cheers!
