St Patrick's Day is finally here and I couldn't be happier! It's the one day out of the year you get a FREE pass. Nobody can judge you for ordering a beer before noon. You also get to eat all afternoon and wear funny green clothing.....It's really the BEST day ever!

This year, it's is even MORE special as Paddy's falls on a Friday! That means we can hit it hard all afternoon, and well into the night. I recommend beer, water, beer, water, water, beer. It's a marathon, not a sprint.

Most people take the day off. If you do go to work, you can't be very productive. There's so much going on! You've got the parade, the NCAA basketball games, the ice cold green beer, and all of your knucklehead friends texting you constantly to meet them.

Here's my advice: Go into the office for a few hours in the morning. Drink some coffee and send a few e-mails. Stop in the bosses office and make some small talk. After that, fake an illness and get the hell out of there! Life is way too short to spend the best drinking day of the year cooped up in a gosh darn cubicle.

I love St. Patrick's Day because it's fun. It's all about hanging out with friends and having a good time. If you do plan to party all day, make sure you are safe. Please have a designated driver to get you home. The last thing you want to do is end up in jail with a drunk Leprechaun named Bubba.
