It's the 279th* St. Patrick's Day in the United States of America, and in fine Eater tradition we're coming at you live from McSorley's Old Ale House on 7th Street in East Village. McSorley's is one of New York's oldest bars and a true St. Paddy's Day icon. Doors open at 8 a.m., so stay tuned to see exactly what goes down via the live blog — or come by the holiday HQ to see the festivities for yourself.
*Where'd 279 come from? According to legend, that's how many years ago the holiday was first observed in the United States. Don't agree? State your case in the comments below.
