Ah, St. Patrick's Day in Savannah - a time for green beer, shamrock-shaped sunglasses, and the occasional parade-goer taking a quick nap on a park bench. But let's face it, for many of us, the celebration often ends before noon. Our promises of staying out all day turns into a mid-day fiesta.
That's where St. "Practice" Day comes in - the perfect opportunity to build up your tolerance and be in tip-top shape for the big day.
You see, St. Practice Day is like training for a marathon, but instead of running for miles, you're running for a shot of whiskey and pints of Guinness. It's a chance to warm up your liver, work on your stamina, and perfect your Irish accent (or at least your "top o' the mornin' to ya"). And let's not forget, it's also an opportunity to break in those new green suspenders before they get their official debut on St. Patrick's Day.
But "St. Practice Day" isn't just about drinking and wearing green, it's also about tradition. Savannah has a rich history of St. Patrick's Day celebrations dating back to the 18th century. And while the parade and pub crawls have evolved over time, the spirit of the holiday remains the same - to come together with friends and family, raise a glass, and celebrate the Emerald Isle.
So, gather your crew, put on your greenest clothes, and join us for "St. Practice Day" on March 11th. Trust us, it's a Savannah tradition you don't want to miss. And who knows, you might just make it to the end of the parade this year.
Or at least, you'll wake up on St. Patrick's Day with a clearer head and a newfound appreciation for the Irish.
