Ok before I start...
Now that's out of the way, let's talk about the importance of St. Patty's day. Now, you might be an asshole and think that St. Patty's Day is stupid, and you're right; you do suck at life. It isn't all about the irish, it's about getting drunk with the people you love. If you're doing it right, the night should look something like this half way through
if you feel like getting really epic, you should play wizard sticks. wizard sticks is an awesome game you play with your friends where you finish a can of beer and tape your new one to the top. it should look something as awesome as this:
i've heard different rules about wizard sticks where first one to drink their height in wizard stick wins, but i actually think no one wins with those rules. it's best to just see who has the highest one by the end of the night and then receives a high five or gets their back rubbed when they throw up.
pubs are an okay choice, but they are filled with jocks,bros, and guidos who aren't even irish but take it way too seriously. it's a better idea just to stock up on a ton of booze and throw a party (not at your own house). the point of green beer is so when you throw up it's funny. be back in a day or two.
