I POSSESS NOT AN OUNCE of Irish blood and I am not Catholic.
But green is my favorite color.
My Uncle Robin hails from Belfast, Northern Ireland. He married into a family of Germans.
I like potatoes. And Irish stew.
My husband likes fish and chips. And beer. Me, too, but not whiskey.
My name, Audrey, of course, is not Irish. But I know a lot of Kathys and a few Kathleens.
I can’t dance an Irish jig nor name an Irish tune. However, I enjoy music in an Irish pub.
And I’ll return to The Olde Triangle Pub. Sunday marked my second time dining here on a visit to Wabasha. I love this cozy, and I do mean cozy, spot in the heart of this historic Mississippi River town.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everyone, Irish or not!
