We are in it: the inevitable decrescendo towards civility and normalcy. The frigid aftermath of the volatile highs of St. Paddy’s weekend are typically associated with a week-long hangover—a gradual decompression from the bombast and insanity that lulls the weekly warrior into a funk. To alleviate the languorous haze induced by the work-week grind, the natural remedy is to inject some joviality into the everyday—a proverbial week-long “hair of the dog” that lessens the sting of Reality’s cruel embrace!
With the emerald garb relegated to hibernation, the debaucheroues memories shall have to sustain for another year’s time. Until then, a little daily indulgence shall have to suffice!
December is here, and with it comes snow, Santa, menorahs, and good holiday cheer! Partake in these fun wintery events that are sure to warm you up and give you something to talk about on your days off by the fire.
The Feast of Seven Fishes - Patsy's Italian Restaurant will be hosting a magnificent Italian feast, running from December 16th- 24th.

Dessert takes the feast to another level, with a choice between homemade strufoli (honey balls) or homemade biscotti. The feast will be $59.95/person and it'll be well worth it!
