'Tis the Season

St. Patrick's Day on Greenville: Rain, Shine or Shiver

Saturday is one of my favorite days of the year.

A day when you can drink beer in public without threat of a ticket. A day when you can demand ask random gals to flash their assets without threat of a sexual harassment lawsuit. A day when you can mix, mingle and frolick with some of Dallas' greenest, funnest people and top it all off with a cool concert.

I know the forecast is calling for drizzle and temperatures barely cracking 50, but the 30th Annual Dallas Observer St. Patrick's Day Parade will be hotter than ever.

*I'll be on the Observer float, shaking hands, kissing babies and throwing beads to the most energetic, enthusiastic and, um, deserving people along the route. (Special thanks to the dude who nailed me with a twinkie last year. Touche.)

*105.3 The Fan morning host Jagger will be the Grand Marshal.

*And the The Old 97's will be the headline act at the post-parade party at Energy Square, corner of Greenville and University.

What you got better to do, watch SMU basketball's annual run toward March Madness?

That's what I thought. See you at 11 a.m. - rain, shine or shiver.
