Happy Irish Purim!

St. Patrick’s Day is tomorrow

Last week was Purim, the holiday when Jews get drunk. Tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day, the holiday when Irish people and people of Irish descent get drunk (I’ll let the commenters make the obvious jokes). In 2014, Purim comes a day before St. Patrick’s Day, which could certainly lead to an interesting couple days in Williamsburg.

I leave you with this list of famous Irish Jews; this message from the most famous Irish Jew of them all, who happens to be fictional; and the below song, which is not Jewish at all.

Oh, and if you want to get a jump-start on your weekend imbibing, Notre Dame plays this evening.
