Ah Green. One of my favorite flavors. Happy St. Patricks to all of you in the extended Irish Family ! May your pot at end of Rainbow not be a toilet bowl you puke in.

We have two events going on at 58 this week. Tonight, Thomas J Carlson, who's current exhibit, Ides of March, is sharing some new sketches as well as his culinary skills with a Tempeh Taco Tuesday Dinner Party. I am going to whip up some green guacamole, and that's about as Irish as this one gets folks. If you want to come enjoy artwork and tacos come by and bring a beverage. Things start at four and we are done at eight. Come sober, save your shenanigans for the Lucky Sevens St. Patricks Day Party or The White Star - Green Star Party God (referring to Catholic for this Racial Tinge) who isn't having a St. Patrick Day's Party ?
