Mountain Dew?

It's France, man. Those kids have been drinking wine since they were toddlers.
Yeah, but we are talking beer here. Who would want to subject a kid to that foul, bitter, doughy taste?

Anyway, my preference would also be Friday.

I agree with the others that Friday is the way to go. That way if the kids are interested about the holiday, they still have time to plan to do something with their families on St. Patrick's Day Sunday if they want.
Kid: "Mommy, Daddy, I want to do Car Bombs!"
Wow!

I'm glad I'm not you.

Car Bombs the drink, not the IRA tactic, in case that wasn't clear. I.e., a shot of Bailey's and Whiskey mixed together dropped into a pint of Guinness.

Mountain Dew is disgusting, and probably far unhealthier for children in a single serving than the Bailey's-whiskey-Guinness combo would be.

Don't knock it until you try it.

Although, if you're going to try it, make sure you chug quickly because that shit will curdle if you don't.

Seriously, though, they actually do taste quite good.

Re: St Patrick's Day question

^ I can't stand Guinness or whiskey. I'd be more likely to just drink Bailey's straight from the bottle.

I'm half-Irish, my last name begins with Mc for Christ's sake, and I had no idea St. Patrick's Day was coming up until now. I guess I'm out to lunch!

Also the fact that I was making a joke, if that wasn't clear.

Also, Car Bombs are delicious.

My Saint Patrick's Day question is (and will always be):

"If they can dye this river green today, why can't they dye it blue the other 364 days a year?"

To be completely clear, not only is that drink not widely known in Ireland, if you were to order one you would probably receive an angry glare from the bartender, and anti-American sentiment would increase a couple of percentage points.

Re: St Patrick's Day question

Fair enough. But as I don't plan to visit Ireland anytime soon, I'm gonna continue ordering my car bombs from American bartenders, and they will know exactly what I mean.

My bar even stocks extra Baileys and Jameson specifically for making Car Bombs on St. Patty's Day.
