St. Patrick’s Day is just over a week out and, if you’re at all like Redhook, it’s time to get the crew together to watch Leprechaun, unquestionably one of the most horribly awesome movies ever made.
Many cinephiles don’t know there are actually six “films” in the Leprechaun canon. You can even buy the first four in a handy box set for less than $7. Yup, that’s Jennifer Aniston in the first one.
St. Patrick’s Day offers many other fine traditions, of course. Like green beer, parades, and hordes of drunk people cramming into Irish pubs and shouting loudly with fake Irish accents. “Erin go bragh! I mean, heh heh, Erin go bra-less! Woooo!” Notice the dude above sticking out his tongue and flashing gang signs — a classic hot chicks with d-bags maneuver if Redhook’s ever seen one.
St. Patrick’s Day also brings us the St. Patrick’s Day Dash, a roughly 4-mile fun run through the streets of Seattle for all ages and ability levels. This year, the 27th annual Dash is actually on St. Patty’s Day, which should help everyone keep his or her calendar straight. Registration is $35, proceeds benefit the Detlef Schrempf Foundation in support of Northwest children’s charities, and if you’re of legal drinking age, you can refresh yourself with Redhook in the beer garden after the run. Check out all the other details at stpatsdash.com.
Lastly, to make signing up for the race even easier, Redhook’s throwing a registration party at his Forecasters Pub in Woodinville on Saturday, March 10 from noon to 6 p.m. Get more info about the party and the Dash on Redhook’s calendar page.
Hopefully, Redhook will see you in the beer garden after the Dash. And if you go out on St. Patty’s Day, please drink responsibly.
