Sign outside the Star and Shamrock Tavern & Deli on H Street, Washington, DC.
It’s Saint Patrick’s Day! Time to wear the green and drink to excess. The menu? Corned beef and cabbage... Irish soda bread... smoked salmon... Irish whisky...
I figure corned beef is popular in Eire because it’s one of the few remaining sources of protein, now that the snakes have been driven out. And it - along with the tavern whose sign is pictured above - is one of the rare cultural linkage points between the Irish and us Red Sea Pedestrians. And so I’m all for it.
