“You guys are awesome.” “You're so talented.” “You must be a natural.” No. Just no.

Patrick's day is coming up, and once again, we're overbooked and underappreciated by a lot of our venues. It brings to mind a story from St. Pat's two years ago.

Glad you decided to join up, Jenni. I have found that if you want to get something out of this site you have to do something. There are a lot of lurkers here. Got any vids of Belfast Gin you could share?
