Things really suck right now for a lot of people. And they are only going to get suckier. But before we all start Googling “Top Depression-Era Recipes to Feed the Whole Family,” I do have a little scoop from the weekend. Not a lot, as everything is closing down, but here’s a tiny tidbit to read while social distancing.
The “luck” of the Irish
Last Saturday and Tuesday were supposed to be the biggest money-making days of the year for our local Irish pubs. But the coronavirus pretty much ruined everything, as it continues to do.
Sadly, O’Daly’s, Callaghan’s, McSharry’s and others decided to cancel or drastically reduce the scope of their events.
Callaghan’s did cancel their street party, but moved the shenanigans inside, with Blackwater Brass and The Red Clay Strays entertaining the folks who showed up.
People were urged to wash their hands and take precautions, and one patron did so with a little Crichton Leprechaun style, wearing a surgical mask with everyone’s favorite “amateur sketch” of a mythical creature on it.
Hey, you gotta keep a good sense of humor in times like these.
I am told folks still had a great time despite the circumstances. Here’s hoping we can have an even bigger celebration when all of this is finally over.
Will work for ….
Reports circulated of a man in Bay Minette who stood on the side of Highway 59 with a sign that read: “Will Work for Toilet Paper.” A WKRG story identified the man as Jordan Callaway, who said he was trying to give the community a “good laugh” in this time of coronavirus stress. Well done, Jordan. Well done.
What else would I work for right now? Hand sanitizer, bread, meat? I swear if they do close down all of the ABC stores in this time of national tragedy, I am going to learn how to make moonshine. I am not kidding!
Well kids, that’s all I got. Just remember, whether rain or shine, dramatic or scandalous, or some plain ol’ coronavirus hatin’, I will be there. Ciao!
