Last Saturday we spent the day downtown celebrating St. Patrick's Day.
I haven't had a St. Patty's Day off since 2008.
I was geared up!
We started the morning downtown on the 30th floor of the Galtier Plaza at my aunt and uncle's place.
They had people coming and going for hours.
We decided to catch the parade from there since we were having so much fun!
They had the traditional corned beef etc. lunch.
The view was amazing, even though it made my knees weak actually out on the balcony.
We headed out and hit several bars on the way.
Finally we had a Thai dinner (that I choose to only drink water - my best choice of the day!).
Then we headed over to the bus stop and hopped on the city bus - free of charge for the evening.
Although, being the city girl that I am, it was my first ride on a real city bus.
Do I look relaxed?
Notice my finger?
When Victoria saw it the next day she thought it said
Hey! Bear Here! and asked,
"Why were you looking for bears with Auntie Tammey?"
We hit a few more bars and then settled in at the Bay Street.
We weren't allowed to drink on the street, but Pat got around that.
The sun is setting at this point. So we were about 9 hrs in.
Can you tell?
Now can you tell?
We ended the night at Zamboni's for a dozen Bud Lights and a Meat Lovers Pizza.
*Even in that situation I took a box to go! What is wrong with me?*
Then we caught a cab right out the door at 1:15am.
There were many many things that happened that night that were hilarious but, it's all a bit hazy.
After 15 hours, I'm just glad we made it home!
