I stopped by Cupcakes with my mother at lunch time today and proceeded to be enchanted by their Irish cream/buttercream cupcake. I don’t often spend over $3 on a Cupcake but let me tell you, it was worth every bite.
This rich, creamy, and indulgent creation reminded me that it was St Patrick’s Day. Actually, Todd and Karen in the morning on CFOX broadcasting from Dublin was my first clue but this was a delicious reminder. Now, I know for a fact that it’s going to be a rowdy night at GM Place for the Canucks game, as fans were already sporting their festive green and shamrock-laden apparel on Sunday, but I thought it may be useful to highlight some of the other festivities taking place in town today.
Where to go – Pubs Downtown
Since most of the family-friendly events were this past weekend, local watering holes will most likely be packed this evening, serving up everything from Guinness to spirited concoctions that will be tinted green.
After writing that I managed to thoroughly make myself hunger for a big bowl of stew (and maybe a pint), but I was wondering if Vancouverites will even be heading out to partake in the festivities tonight, I mean afterall, it’s only Tuesday. However one look at the Club Vibes listings blew that theory out of the emerald water — $1 beers at The Standard if you wear green? Yipes.
I’ll be home waiting for John to finish working the Canucks game/post-game so I’m hoping he can get home safely at that wee hour. Whatever you do tonight, be sure to plan a safe route home as well. Cheers!
