St. Patrick's Day Parade In Cleveland, Ohio

This past Saturday, the 9th of October, there was an invasion of sorts in Long Beach. It was the LB Street Food Fest, which featured 28 of Southern California's top Gourmet Food Trucks. Aside from the uncharacteristic heat for an October day, it was AWESOME! I had invited a few of my friends down to join in on the fun and hang with my girl and I. We even got a chance to spend some time with Lou & Sue (dad & step-mom), and there was a guest appearance by my niece. Friends, family and food, what could be better? Yes, I'm sure we could all think of a few things, but that was a rhetorical question...

Sweet Action Ice Cream shop is a local favorite on Broadway. This ice cream shop creates many different flavors that boggles your taste buds. I had a scoop of dark chocolate pomegranate that had a deep chocolate flavor with just a hint of dried pomegranates. They also made some beer infused ice cream corned beef breakfast the Great American Brew Festival that any beer enthusiast would have enjoyed. Sweet Action changes their menu quite often, so don't get to used to any one flavor.

Traditionally corned beef and cabbage are the fare for Saint Patrick's Day, and those of us with a frugal, lazy spirit, usually look for canned corned beef. No luck this year because it isn't going to happen. Why?

Built in the late 1800's, this bar in the city of Toledo was designed after the famous Milligan's bar in Ireland. With exposed brick walls, tin roof, elaborate wood carvings and slate floors, it's like a little slice of the potato country. Seating in the place is a few booths and 100 bar stools. They feature authentic Irish food (shepherd's pie, fish and chips, slow cooker corned beef and cabbage and cabbage, etc.) and 21 beers on tap including many Irish and other European imports. Every St. Patrick's Day they are visited with nationally renown Irish performers such as Gaelic Storm and Clandestine, step dancers, and they hold a raffle to win a trip to Ireland.

The brisket comes already brined and ready to cook. You need to rinse the brine off, then place the brisket in a large heavy pot. Add the spice packet that came with the brisket, and cover it with water.

Try a traditional Irish ingredient to add to your list of budget staples. Turnips are only 99 cents a pound and most people walk right past them. They're tasty, good for you and they've been on the Irish table for generations.

At this Irish restaurant, they serve platters of bangers and mash (Irish sausage with mashed potatoes) and lamb stew with plates of hearty bread.Their slow cooker slow cooker corned beef and cabbage soup and cabbage reuben is fantastic. Prices are fairly inexpensive. McKinnon's Irish Pub is licated in the heart of downtown Hartford, across from the Hartford Civic Center.

Although it's not a traditional Irish meal, corned beef brisket and cabbage has become an integral part of Irish-American culture and it's often the center of the the St. Patrick's Day holiday dinner table.

Moriarty's Pub at 116 Walnut Street is throwing a huge St. Paddy's Day celebration. The festivities include green beer specials and other Irish drafts on tap. There's all-you-can eat authentic Irish pub cuisine and homemade Irish desserts will be served until 1 a.m. Plus, they're having a Shamrock Showdown which includes live Irish dancing, most-green contests and bag pipers.
