It's almost St. Patrick's Day in the Windy City 'o green
rivers and hard drinkers. With their emerald beer slamming days
behind them, the Dads wonder how to spend the weekend.
WDP16: Kegs'n'Eggs and Fish'n'Mint by ChicagoParent
There are family holidays (Easter, Christmas) and grown-up
holidays (New Years, Valentines). The Dads think St. Patrick's day
is the latter, and don't know how to spend it. D.M. doesn't live in
a city anymore, so he can't show his twins a parade, only take them
to a grocery store to buy some cabbage. Todd can't explain to his
kids why he would start drinking first thing in the morning and not
stop until his wife wants to pack a bag, and Matt thinks his one
year old would hate Wrigleyville even more than most other people
Todd suggests packing it in and just making corned beef - even
though kids hate corned beef. (And, really, if it was decent food,
would you have to boil it for eight hours?) D.M thinks St.
Patrick's Day should be explained away like a mythical holiday
creature, and Matt suggests a trip to McDonalds. The Dads like a
good mint shake once a year, but don't think it goes well with
breaded carp balls. Then they examine the new phenomenon of the
cherry on top of the Shamrock Shake, and things get gross in White
Dad Problems' signature way.

up to meet you, or whatever.
