(Eater)   Dallas officials say that this year's St Patrick's Day parade will be less of a sloppy-drunk frat party and more of an "upscale" family party. Apparently none of them have never been to an Irish family party   ( divider line

My town tried to do that for years. Every year they would make a big stink about "Look, we aren't going to tolerate the wild party and whole town being drunk again this year! seriously guys!"

All it did was generate news paper headlines pointing out to anyone who didn't know, that town was a wild party drunk fest that day, and that they should come join in the fun.

CSB: When I was a youngster and got my first apartment, Jimmy, the guy next door became my good buddy. When St. Paddy's day rolled around, he invited me to his family's place out in the country, lots of great food, free booze...that's all I needed to hear, sign me up.

He wasn't lying, great food, kegs of beer, and a family of about 30 or so that treated me as their own because Jimmy brought me. After dinner (and a few rounds of whisky to top off the beer), his two older brothers, Pat and Colin, started ragging on each other, and things escalated quickly. They're getting ready to trade punches, I look around in horror, and everybody's just chilling, except for their mom, who's yelling at them to stop it. I look at Jimmy, he just grins, leans into me and says, "Don't worry, this happens all the time, I think Pat might finally take him this year."

/Pat didn't take him, Colin beat his ass
/20 minutes later, they were clinking glasses

I'm sick of all the Irish stereotypes. As soon as I finish this drink, I'm punching someone.

groppet: Im real tired of people trying to make events mroe "family" friendly. A lot of people go to these things to get away from their families. When we go tailgating for punkin chunkin in Delaware there is one rule No Kids! And its worked for years and we love it.

Wade_Wilson: Does anyone do family stuff for Saint Patrick's Day? Maybe if you are actually Irish you would, but it's not like it's a holiday where you make trips to see grandma or get the day off school.

Well, I know when I lived in Kansas City everyone would bring their families out downtown to watch the St. Patrick's Day parade. Sure, there would be a float or two, maybe some bagpipers, but mostly it was just an endless display of this:

Black youth marching drum corps with little 8 year old girls grinding on the pavement. If that isn't in the spirit of St. Patrick's Day I don't know what is.

As my Irish great grandmother would always say after finishing her first glass of wine/beer/whatever "a bird can't fly on one wing". Course what she thought was a bird seemed to have half a dozen wings........

Weigard: Because if Dallas is known for one thing, it's class.

What amuses me about this comment is that a Dallas resident would not notice the sarcasm.

Would you deprive a muslim of his right to pray to Mecca?

Why would you deprive an Irishman of his right to get obnoxiously drunk in public?
