As immigrants to the United States, the Irish people brought with them a beautiful and valuable culture, which, while initially discriminated against and misunderstood, is now a quintessential part of American culture.

And we celebrate it by all "being" Irish and getting snookered af. But BEFORE you engage in any shenanigans, be sure to have a designated driver or a cab/uber/lyft/loving and understanding parent lined up to drive you.
