This was the third of the Elderberries’ annual St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, and it was stupendous — starting with our Friday céilí, then playing on the Saturday ferry en route to Fiddler’s Green in San Francisco, back to Alameda at the High Street Station Cafe, to Dublin on Sunday then back to 4th Street in Berkeley and with our allies at the Starry Plough that night (and back there again for the Monday céilí), then to McNally’s and Schmidt’s Pub on St. Paddy’s Day itself. This was just great in so many ways, but particularly because of the sweet enthusiasm that met us at every turn.
After last year’s completely enchanting finale at Pub, with irrepressible happy fabulous dancing busting out under the open sky, it seemed a bit much to expect a topper this time around. A great big time was delivered, though, and once again it was just completely charming.
Needless to say, we’re having a damn good time with this, and we’ll keep it going.
Thank you to all. See you soon.
Paul, Rebecca, and Chris yuckin’ it up on the way to Pub.
