About a month ago we had our St. Patrick's Day celebration here in the grand Savannah. It really is an event to behold! We had a record breaking 1.1 million people attend this year. It was absolutely amazing! Also, that number made us the biggest St. Patrick's Day celebration in the WORLD!!
The day before St. Patrick's Day my firm hosts a St. Patrick's Day party that rivals any fraternity parties I have been to. We (me, Larkin and our runner, Don) spend all day decorating the back parking lot, gathering up kegs, wine, ice and everything that is necessary to host this amazing event.
This year we bought three kegs of Harp (approximately 600 beers) and a case of wine for the event. We expected around 200 people to attend.
The party started at 4:00pm and by 7:00pm we had floated ALL. THREE. KEGS. Major emergency! I contacted the liquor store (a client of ours incidentally) where we bought the kegs, told them the devastating news and ordered another $300.00 worth of Harp in bottles (they were completely out of Harp kegs and out of taps for the other kegs they did have). They loaded them up and had them delivered to us in about 10 minutes. That is SERVICE right there.
The party continued on with Call the Cops performing, lots of dancing, more drinking. A rainstorm came along which moved our party to the front porch of the firm where we continued until 2:00am singing karaoke and finishing off all but two bottles of wine and two cases of Harp.
The next morning I woke up at 6:00am to start the party again, as we had to attend the parade, mingle with the tourists and drink more! We ended up crashing about 6:00pm and didn't wake up until 8:00am on Sunday. It is absolutely exhausting, but SO MUCH FUN! If ever any of you people want to come and celebrate one year, let me know!
Here are some pictures from the firm party (thanks Michelle and Whitney for the amazing photos!)
