The Last Weekend of March Goes Out Like a ????

Well, here we are at the last weekend in March 2015. It seems like I just published that post about March events.  Even though it's technically Spring, we look ahead to some warmer weather, and, yes, even more events.  But, first, let's send March out like a party animal.  Here are some events happening around Northeast Florida this coming weekend.


Slainte!: St. Patrick's Day and Life Thereafter in St. Augustine

Hey, St. Augustine, so you survived Celtic Fest this past weekend.  I had a fun time out there yesterday selling beverage tokens and listening to Irish music. 

You get one day to recover (except for you really hard-core Irish party animals who probably haven't stopped yet).  There's a lot of Irish going on in St. Augustine, so get your green derby, shamrocks, and whatever else green you can put on your body, and check out some of these Irish shindigs. Whether you're talkin' Guinness, Murphy's, Smithwick's (do you know how to pronouce that, by the way), or Harp (and I hear there's something called Jameson), there's somethin' for ya in town on this March 17, whether you're hoisting a green beer or not.  Of course, I'd recommend at least an Irish Stout! Here are a few places that will be partying like leprechauns with a pot of gold:


Florida Brewers Guild Craft Beer Festival Tapped It as Tampa Bay Beer Week 2015 Opened

Last week at this time, I was heading across the state from St. Augustine on the ocean to Tampa on the bay, where the breweries seem to be opening faster than a hard pour.  The duffel bags were loaded with too many clothes for a 2-day trip, and the cooler was enjoying its quiet time off while dutifully awaiting its return cargo. It had been a couple of years since I visited Tampa (see the two "WaZoo" posts from August 2013), and it was time to go back.
