In 2007 NYC was pounded with snow. If I can recall, the year before that, it was rather mild; not even sure we needed a coat!

Non-coat needing weather would be ideal this time.

Someone needs to get on that, stat.

actually st. patrick's day it's self was a fairly nice day. i didn't wear a coat. just a long sleeve shirt under my polo. it was the two days before st. patrick's day that presented the problem... with a semi-major ice and snow storm sweeping through the area and closing the airports. made the day it's self a little messy with melting snow and ice all over the place, but the weather it's self wasn't that bad.

i think in the past 5-6 years or so there were flurries on one other st. patrick's day, but for the most part it's in the high 40s, low 50s.

and 8 dollar beers are at b.b. king's... i think it was 7 something actually, but that's just like any other concert hall type place. once they have ya in and know ya ain't leaving, they've got ya by the short hairs.

I've only once paid higher than $4.50 for beer here in Halifax, and that was for imports at a Rolling Stones show.

Domestics here are never more than $3.50, even for top quality microbrew.

Even $7.50 US ended up being more than $8 Canadian per beer (then - now it'd be around $7 ). I mean, I know it's St. Patrick's Day, but I shouldn't have to take out another student loan in order to get drunk. So I didn't get very drunk last year. Being Irish, I felt like my ancestors were kicking my spirit's ass.

If I do end up coming this year, you can be damn sure I'm going to predrink my face off at the hotel before I leave for a bar.

About the beers at concerts - expect to pay between $7-10 easy in any major metropolitan area. I've never paid less than that at any concert I've been to, ever.

As for the weather - I sure as hell needed a coat. But, then again, I'm delicate and all that. I get cold easily.

And I hadn't been drinking all day like ahem, some people were.

I certainly needed a more serious coat than the windbreaker I brought.

Uh-oh, someone else who knows! But I'll be doing my scouting for ticks and venues for my tribe soon...very soon. I may do the visit to BB King's and other places. So shall the Zootops and Interference people collide?

welcome to new york.

a pint of guinness at an average bar on an average day will cost somewhere between 5 and 6 dollars. a budweiser? 4 bucks, give or take. supply/demand. it is what it is.
