What does St Paddy's Day have to do with actually being Irish? It's an excuse to drink heavily all day long.

So the Irish are a bunch of drunks?!?

Way to buy into stereotypes there Belmont. I have heard a few stereotypes about Belmont too, but I have the intelligence and manners not to feed into them.

The stigma has been attached to the Irish since they came over here during the potato famine, some deserved, some not but there it is.

Everyone drink heavily and drive on 5th street. Cops won't have any roadblocks at all that way.
