It’s that time of year. The color green is slowly spreading across Boston and anyone with vaguely Irish roots is migrating to Southie. Saint Patrick’s Day is almost here and you don’t want to miss the opportunity to experience one of Boston’s most beloved traditions, and to drink your weight in Guinness. Sláinte!
