Friends don't let friends drink green beer. While lovely, most of the spreads seem too,ah, sophisticated for the general masses that celebrate St Patty's Day in the Baltimore way.
Good for Slainte' though for doing something good with the inevitable 20 odd kegs of Guinness that will be sold given the holiday.
