The Empty Nester Pub Crawl

It's 9:00 am in the morning, here in sunny Scottsdale, AZ and what a lovely day it is. My wee puppy (now 85 pounds) had his morning romp with the 'goldens and the poodles', took a dip in his pool and has fallen asleep on the floor next to my desk. So, what's an empty nest Mom supposed to do on St. Patrick's Day? I hear "Pub Crawl" don't you?

I'll update this post as the day goes by.

First stop, Bill's office for some delicious Irish Coffee made by Bill's boss. (He makes the best Irish coffee this side of the Atlantic). Talk to you soon.........................
Best Irish Coffee. Ever.






Here is the master. Larry also happens to be one of the best people on this planet. Bill has been lucky enough to work with him for the past 17 years. They are family.





Roberta has stopped by to to a pub crawl with the group. Isn't she adorable? Seriously!


Becky works at Taro with Bill and used to work with me and Roberta at Troon. It's all very incestuous. Isn't she adorable? Best hair ever.
This is Larry's wife Cathi. Yes, I know. Adorable. And smart. And funny. And raises chickens and grows vegetables. She's amazing.

(No pictures of Bill or Ray yet. They are also adorable!)


In case you are just figuring this out, YES, I am a happy drunk.


It is now 10:56 and it's time to move on. To an Irish restaurant for some lunch........


(Okay, if you are in the area and at a fun bar or Irish event, call my cell and I'll come join you!)


In case you are wondering, these people are not blurry! I, however, am a little blurry!


Talk to you soon....


Next stop is the Skeptical Chemist, located in North Scottsdale. Lots of fun people, lots of people-watching. A great band, but not Irish music. What a bummer. We did meet the band members:


I think Becky's got things covered. But he got real interested when this person showed up:






Don't they good look together? We took this picture and never saw him again.


This is Becky and Ray.Here is adorable Kelly and new friend, Shawn:
And finally, Bill and me and a cactus:
Going home in a ride makes the evening so much better:

The evening was just staring for so many people. We are home to feed the wee little pup and go to sleep ourselves. Happy St. Patrick's Day to everyone. I hope you had a good time!

I had no idea that you were so into St. Patty's Day! And to think you could have come over to my house last night for corned beef!
