Hoboken St Patrick's Day

Year after year, Hoboken falls victim to premature commemoration and lets fly their St. Patrick's Day festivities two weeks early. The action's at the many early pouring Irish pubs: Mulligan's (9am), McSwiggan's (9am), Willie McBride's (9:30am), or, if you're soft, McMahon's (10am). The 1pm parade's being grand marshaled by high school baseball coach Charles "Buddy" Matthews. Poor Hoboken.
