Shamrock Spirit

Usually St. Patrick’s Day is not on the top of my list of favorite holidays. I don’t tend to go in for that sort of pub madness. But reporting on St. Patrick’s Day happenings on Main Street in Santa Monica for the Los Angeles Times got me in the mood for some Irish grub and the shamrock spirit. It turns out Main Street — an eclectic shopping lane paralleling the beach — is a pub crawler’s haven. Read about it in my round up of Irish pubs, taverns, and alehouses on the block. Though I didn’t end up hitting a bar to celebrate, I did boil up a mighty fine Trader Joe’s uncured corned beef in solidarity. Read more about it on my food blog.
