Happy St. Ratty’s day! Say what you want about its everyday fare, but everyone’s favorite refectory never fails to pull out all the stops on special occasions. Go on over and decorate your own edible arrangements while supplies still last – you’ll need something in your stomach if you plan on making it through the day.
A very different ode to St. Patrick’s Day. We love you, Mr. President.
If you happen to be looking for an anthem for your St. Patty’s Day celebrations, this song should be in your top four. Listen. Enjoy. Find the freakin’ gold.
This Saturday, March 17, is a momentous occasion in Ireland and America alike (though in few other places): the day we celebrate the Christianization of Ireland by Saint Patrick with copious amounts of green-dyed beer. Huzzah!
Lately, I’ve really wanted to make a cheesecake. Cheesecake is one of those desserts that seems really difficult to make, but is actually quite easy once you have a foundational recipe. But remember, not all cheesecakes are created equal. It seemed only fitting that this week I should test out my brand spankin’ new spring-form cake pans with a cheesecake. And due to the 100-year anniversary of Oreos, I wanted to incorporate the iconic cookie into my creation. To make this cheesecake even better, I threw in some cocoa powder (because chocolate only serves to make things better), made a dark chocolate ganache to pour on top, and added a whole lot of Bailey’s — after all, it is Saint Patrick’s Day!

It’s St. Patrick’s day, and, naturally, BUDS is pulling out all the stops. For lunch, they’ve set up multi-part build-and-frost-your-own cupcake stations in both eateries, with sugar shamrock garnishes included. Dinner will feature some pseudo-authentic Irish fare (sorry, Ratty, the cupcake trend began in New York, not Dublin), with corned beef brisket and colcannon potatoes. Diners not wearing green will be forcibly removed.
In case you were wondering what the deal was with these zeppole things at the Ratty, V-dub and Blue Room — it’s all in honor of the other big saint with a day this week, St. Joseph.
Don’t know how the pastries got added into the mix of traditions, but “San Giuseppe” — Mary’s husband — is big with the Italians, hence his feast’s importance in Providence. Unfortunately for us college students, the March 19 holiday isn’t used as an excuse for excessive drinking, but at least nobody’s going to pinch you for forgetting to wear red.
To the 25 percent of you who are most looking forward to Snoop Dogg this April, here’s a little teaser for you — courtesy of the Daily Show, where Snoop was promoting his new record, More Malice. (What, you thought he was just coming by pleasant Providence to say hello?)
|The Daily Show With Jon Stewart||Mon – Thurs 11p / 10c|
Snoop talked about straying from the script when he recorded his voice for GPS (“If you get it wrong, I’ll let you know”) and Dr. Dre’s position on health care (“He definitely stands high on it.”). Jon Stewart asked Snoop Dogg if he was still in it for the music, to which he responded, “ . . . television, music, celebrity, you know, being able to get things for free.”
Appearing on St. Patrick’s Day, Snoop told Stewart he was wearing his green on the inside.
The luck of the Irish or the influence of their alcohol?
Either way, Brown has fled College Hill in favor of a festive St. Patrick’s Day celebration at the Fish Company.
Take creative students, add cheap alcohol and the result? FISHKUS.
Today is St. Patty’s
So we got here too early
Hope it doesn’t suck
I like the way you
walk. Very eloquent. Walk
that shit to FishCo.
— Yelled on Thayer
So so so sloppy
My friends are losing their shit
Oh no could be bad
Dancing on the pole
Looking oh so slutty. Oh
Well, who the fuck cares
