Looking For Things to do in Oakville this St. Patrick’s Day?
I don’t think I have to tell you all that March 17th is St. Patrick’s Day.
Now, some of you might be saying – yeah… so? It’s just another day. And you would be right. It is just another day. But, then why did you click on this post to read about things to do on St. Patrick’s Day? Hmmm…. It is yet another day for more commercialism and a reason for the grocery stores to put their 2 year old inventory of green food colouring beside the frozen hams (yuck!).
Maybe you just like green beer or to dress up, or to make green smoothies & green rice crispy treats with your kids. Yes, it is just another day, but why not have some fun with it?
First, let me make this soapbox public service announcement while I’m at it. I am not encouraging people to go drink until they drop. In fact, try this green smoothie recipe instead If you are going to head out to a party or some sort of establishment & enjoy a green ‘beverage’, please DO NOT drink & drive. Arrange a ride, take a cab, use Uber, a bus – please just enjoy responsibly.
