Mead Me on St. Patty’s Day

Some of my St. Patrick’s Day bonanza posts are a little beer heavy . . . OK very beer heavy!  What can I say?  I’m an Irish American girl who loves herself some Smithwick’s! 

For those who don’t roll like that and prefer beverages better suited for raised pinkies, here are a few wine/mead and tea events this weekend!


What: 15th Annual ‘Medieval Mead, Irish Saints, and Entwined with the Vines”
When: March 1 – 31
