Thread Name: Singalong songs for St. Patrick's Day
Subject: RE: Singalong songs for St. Patrick's Day
I agree, Frank, which is why my experience yesterday turned out to be very weird.

This was a last minute request on the part of my friend to lead some songs, but I should have been clued in about the bar scene (duh) not being a patron of bars, I just wasn't thinking. The location is a new bar and restaurant in the old Northern Pacific train depot that was remodeled beautifully to a large space with exposed rafters, stone floor, brick walls. I work part time for my friend doing interior plant design and maintenance and this week, they finished the remodeling and we installed all the plants. She asked me to come over for a drink St. Patrick's day and sing.... well, after circling the neighborhood for awhile, I finally got a parking space and yet when I got to the door they wouldn't let me in.... too full. It is a neat building, and everyone in the area who was into being in the 'new bar' had filled it to overflowing. My friends were inside, but the staff wouldn't let me in because of the crowd. If I'd wanted to hang around for awhile, I would have made it, but I just went home. She told me today that she was sad that I didn't get in to lead some singing, because otherwise there was nothing about the night that had to do with St. Patrick or the Irish. Ah, well.
