With London, New York, and all other major cities shutting down the traditional St Patrick’s Day parades and celebrations, we are here to help you find new ways to enjoy our favorite drink-swilling, cheer-inducing green holiday.
1. No St Paddy’s is complete without a drab of the ol’ whiskey. There’s a world of brands to choose from but for expert advice, we suggest heading to Cadenhead’s Whisky Shop & Tasting Room on Chiltern Street, London for a recommendation. Our favourite so far? The Redbreast 21, a smooth and complex whiskey that keeps light and bold. Get it delivered to you today with TaskRabbit or by post here and serve in a crystal cut tumbler by Ralph Lauren Home.
2. Get comfy and fire up your TV for a screening of Martin Scorcese’s newly minted Oscar-winning classic The Irishman now on Netflix. If you haven’t already seen it, this three and half hour modern masterpiece features Robert De Niro, Leonardo di Caprio and Al Pacino recounting the story of famed union boss (and missing person), Jimmy Hoffa. Pop some green popcorn and get ready for an adventure.
3. If you’re feeling like flexing your inner intellectual, dust off a copy of one the great Irish authors and reflect with some of the great minds of the Emerald Isle; James Joyce, Seamus Heaney, Oscar Wilde, Bram Stoker, and George Bernard Shaw. Don’t have any of these to hand? Get an Amazon prime delivery of these classic Penguin editions or kick back and download them in podcast form here for some easy listening.
