Your Ten-Point, Two-Day Plan For a Proper St. Patrick's Day in Dallas

This year the luck of the Irish is upon us in glorious fashion. The real St. Patrick's Day is on Sunday, but we prefer to do things like parades and concerts on Saturdays, so we get two days of celebration! Here's your 10-point, two-day plan:

Saturday morning Well, of course, you'll want to start the day off proper with a jog Dash along Greenville Avenue, which benefits the North Texas Food Bank.

Saturday Mid-Morning After the dash, head over to Sigel's in Addison and make your way to the small deli in the back of the store for all the goods for a proper Irish breakfast, most importantly fresh baked Irish soda bread. Actually, get a few loaves -- they freeze well. Baker and cheesemonger Theresa Magee is our favorite Irish lass in this fine city. Remember, soda bread. Lots of it.
