Everything Green Around Town

First of all . . . How did I not know that the Pogues are playing in Baltimore on Thursday?!?  They are one of my FAVORITE Irish bands and I am totally missing out.  ARGH!

And now, here’s a list of some of the things that are going on around Baltimore this upcoming weekend for St. Patrick’s Day.  I will be out and about, probably at the Au Potin Stil, which I will talk about a little bit more tomorrow!
