Happy St. Pat's Day!!!


Hey, kids! A very happy St. Patrick's Day to you all. I hope to see a few (or more) of you over at Ross's Dockside this afternoon in Sea Bright. Settle in for a few pints and listen to me belt out a few old rebel and drinking songs. My aim is to keep the whole thing as Irish as possible and to steer away from all the plastic Paddyism you see run rampant today. I want everyone to be exposed to bits of Irish culture they might otherwise not be, all while having a helluva time. So, if you like good food, waterfront views, drinking, and singing at the top of your lungs, you should definitely swing by.

In the spirit of the holiday, I give you a little photo sequence of the last 5 days of my life. My friend Mark is turning his basement into an Irish Pub, and asked to me throw a mural up on the wall. It's based on the one in the movie 'The Boondock Saints'; from the scene where they load up on all that fine weaponry. It really shouldn't have taken me as long as it did, but I was going for a bit of a faux finished look to give it that worn, rustic feel. And, being that it was my first time trying something like that, and that I'm a perfectionist, and that there was a lot of friggin' letters, it took me a long time.

Well, I'm off to drink a pint and dance a jig. Not because it's St. Patrick's Day, mind you. That's just what I do on Monday mornings. Slainte, all.
