Get Excited For St. Patrick's Day!

2011_03_stpattysday.jpgHoboken's early St. Patrick's Day festivities were so out of hand that the town's Mayor will be moving the event to a Wednesday next year to minimize the all day drunkeness. Beyond the police report, authorities also dealt with idiots like a man menacing three people with a knife and someone wearing green boxer shorts and no pants who urinated in a stairwell. Sounds like a blast. But if Hoboken's leaders think moving a parade to a weekday will change anything, they should just come to the East side after New York's parade next week and get the straight truth. [NYT]
