Time to get crazy!
So in Montana, the place to be on St. Patrick’s Day is Butte.
So Butte we headed!
First off, for St Patrick’s Day you have to dress the part. Right down to your toes.
We got there at about 4pm, and the party was already way under way. So underway that the whiskey was already out and about!
And the trash cans were already full… of beer cans!
Our first stop was.. The Dublin! Guess what. It’s an Irish pub!
It was loud, dark, and packed with green inside.
Pretty fun party, but, no beer on tap! What? They apparently they didn’t have time for tapped beer. Lame. We grabbed a Guinness and then left. Yep, St Patrick’s Day in Butte is the one day you can drink on the street! And there were plenty people on the street!
Next we headed to a place where I could get some good beer on tap (yes, I’m a beer snob!)
And where was this? At the Quarry Brewery!
They dig beer! And this place wasn’t lacking in St Patrick’s Day festivities! There were lots of green tutus…
And crazy green heads floating around in the crowd…
And of course drunk Americans signing the national anthem (because that is so Irish!) while standing on tables!
One of my favorite parts was an American tradition I hadn’t had for more than a decade. The jello shot.
What fun! I took that shot like an expert. And boy was it strong!
Unfortunately we were only allowed 3 beers, so off we were to the next stop. But wait, what happened here? It’s not a party until your cheap heel breaks!
That’s ok, I wasn’t angry. I was as cool as a cowboy!
No worries! It was time to head back to the street. It was getting dark but the party was just started.
We, however, are old and tired bunch, so we headed home. It was definitely an experience! I’m so glad I had my favorite Bozeman MT photographer with me to take fabulous pictures, and a great DD! Thanks guys for an amazing time!
