It's St. Patrick, not St. Patty!

Smith's Tavern (440 5th Avenue) is 78 years old.  Old timers know it as Smitty's.  The owner is Mr. Brady.  A sign outside appeared recently stating "Happy St. Patty's Day!"  Amongst many things which incense me, is calling St. Patrick, Patty.  The last time I looked, Patty is a female; St. Patrick was a male.  I entered Smitty's (I'm an old timer, too) and asked that the sign be changed, which it was the next day! 

Mr. Brady and his tavern get a shamrock! 

On St. Patrick's Day, mugs of beer will be $2.00 and there will be music from a pipe band. Y'all come even before St. Patrick's Day. 

Thank you Mr. Brady and all who so promptly changed the sign.  And yes, the sign also states how many more days until St. Patrick's Day; as of now, there are 20.

Happy St. Patrick's Day to all!
