Oooh!! What a day. Bar Man and St. Patrick's Day go together like, well, like Bar Man and St. Patrick's Day.
You saw some of the preparations for our party, mostly consisting of my tasting and refining the Green Apple Margaritas. But there is more to a St. Patrick's Day party than drinking, I think.
More Party Stuff
The cake and jello-shots were Marcie's contribution and, I must say, the jello-shots were the best I have ever had. Definetly not for the kids.
Early Arrivals, Bill, Marcie And The Mysterious Chinese Woman
Bar Man And Marcie Taking Our Medicine
Over The Lips
Through The Gums
Next to arrive were Wayne and Marge. Well, they arrived physically. Wayne, well, we are never sure about Wayne.
Wayne, It's Not Kansas
Wayne always comes around once he has had his medication, though.
Everything Is Better Now
Next To Show Up Were Paul And Sharon.
This next sequence of shots is best viewed in rapid succession or, better yet, not at all.
Bar Man Dances
Marge Was Less Than Impressed
Next to arrive at the party were Jim and Carol. Marge, of course, had to demonstrate my dance for them.
And Then, Carol, He Did This
Jim Had Seen It All Before
And, of course, what is a St. Patrick's Day Party without tattoos? Marcie, of course, came fully prepared.
Jim had the perfect canvas for our artwork.
It Won't Hurt A Bit
Well, Except For Your Dignity
A Little Bit Of Medicine For The Pain
And then we all had to show off our tattoos.
This was a pre-Sweeny's party though so, eventually, we all had to roll out the door and on up to Sweeny's.
Heading On Up
Now, as many as you know, Sweeny's is one of my favorite drinking and eating places in Puerto Vallarta. Yeah, I know, it isn't even Mexican. But they do have good food at reasonable prices. Their pork chops are fantastic and I like their shrimp bowl. Not a shrimp cocktail, a whole lot of shrimp in a warm spicy clear liquid.
But Today Was Corned Beef And Cabbage
And Bar Man Was Pleased
Of course not everyone likes corned beef and cabbage, but Sweeny's had more to offer than just that.
And, as you would expect, we all had a great time.
We were having such a great time that a couple at the next table, Bob and Martha, decided to come over and join us. Marcie was quick to pounce with her tattoos.

And Bob Too
Of course Marcie's heavy partying eventually caught up to her and Sweeny had her take a breath-test which, I am proud to say, she failed miserably.
Is It Supposed To Float When I Blow It Up?
Actually, we were all kind of floating at this time. But we finished up our meal and headed back to the beach where Kim Kuzma was giving another free concert. Marcie, hell-bent on tattooing everyone, could not be restrained.
Marcie Is A Party Pro
I just relaxed on the beach with my friend Gary and a bucket of beers (that I needed like a hole in my head) and took in the show.
Relaxing, Or Passing Out
After the concert I headed up to freshen up for our sunset finale on the pool deck. Luckily it was dark and I forgot my camera. Marcie probably has some pictures though and maybe I will get some from her.
The last several nights Venus (calm down, the planet) pops out right after the sun sets and then it too sets in about an hour or so. Quite a nice encore to the setting of the sun itself.
Today a bunch of us are heading to Bucerias, a little town to the north of Puerto Vallarta. The fun just never stops. I should have pictures of our trip tomorrow, so stay tuned.
