Daily DC Item: White House Goes Green & Obama Goes Irish

0317091804Some people were drinking green beer yesterday- others were drinking green water.

Well if you were the White House fountain you were enjoying green water, I learned from some a local DC blogger that the White House changed the color of the fountain to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. The story in the Politico today confirms that and also reported more on the part Irish Barack Obama (3.1% Irish!)

Did anyone else see the White House fountain yesterday? I’m sure a lot of you were partaking in other activities or were you?

It is always hard to party when a drinking holiday such as this one occurs during the work week, I was keeping tabs on the posts over at Going Out Gurus where the bloggers encountered a morning of empty bars. They say that maybe the revelers aren’t morning people- and they might not be, but you can’t also factor in the fact the working citizens of DC might have been out if it was on a more convenient day.

The last interesting note of yesterday was Obama’s announcement of his nomination for U.S. Ambassador to Ireland: Dan Rooney, owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers. I hope he gets the gig and we see a few NFL games over on the Emerald Island.
