Day 1 St. Patty’s Day Fun – 4 leaf clover – Fudge Mint Popcorn

St. Patty’s Day Fun – Day 1 with treats, trivia and games

Did you know….

Found a four leaf clover? Great. You will now have good luck in gambling and racing and it will render witchcraft powerless! However, you must always carry it with you and never show it to others, or your luck will fail.


Drinking Games – McNickels

This is much more than the Irish version of the popular “Quarters” game (where drunks try and bounce dirty coins into perfectly good glasses of alcohol). In this version, if you bounce your nickel into the glass you actually drink the nickel too. And in this case it pays to win, because if you hork it all up‚ you get enough change for another drink! Genius!
