Irish-American Bucket List: Things To Do Before You End Up In The 'Irish Funny Pages'

Best Blogger Tips
Drink a...

-Black Velvet: 
Float half-a-pint of stout on top of half-a-pint of hard cider (or champagne)
-Black & Tan: 
Float half-a-pint of stout on top of half-a-pint of pale ale
-Black & Brown: 
Float half-a-pint of stout on top of half-a-pint of root beer
-Black & Black: 
Float half-a-pint of stout on top of half-a-pint of stout (careful now, don't let the two halves mix)

Go to...

-The Guinness Storehouse
St. James's Gate, Dublin 3, Ireland
-The Old Jameson Distillery
7 Bow Street, Dublin 7, Ireland
-A pub where you can drink with your distant relatives
For me this is Harry's Bar on Rosses Point in Co. Sligo


Eat some...

-Black pudding
What is tastier than a combination of pigs' blood, grains, onions, herbs and spices? Answer: nothing
-White pudding
It's black pudding, only with pork instead of blood
-Coddle
A pork-lover's alternative to beef stew: it's loaded with sausage and rashers


Learn to...

-Speak Gaelic
Besides just saying "sláinte" and "póg mo thóin"
-Set dance
Set dancing is like square dancing, only without the boots, without the Stetsons and without the caller
-Accept the fact that you're not actually from Ireland
Be strong, we'll get through this together 


P.S. Hey there! If you liked this post, I have a hunch you'll love NEON DRUID: An Anthology of Urban Celtic Fantasy. It's a collection of 17 short stories all rooted in Celtic mythology.


P.P.S. You can also check out my new blog, Irish Myths, where I unveil the secrets of Celtic mythology, Irish mythology, and Irish folklore.
