    No surprise Milwaukee is in the top 10, or that Vegas is number 1. Enjoy your green beer today.:beer: Personally, the look is revolting to me and I can't touch it.

    With St. Patrick's Day festivities set to kick off on Tuesday, one of the most popular drinking days of the year could mean long lines at your local bar. But some cities are more equipped to manage the revelers than others.

    The Las Vegas metro area has the highest number of bartenders per capita, according to a recent study by the jobs site CareerBuilder. Sin City has about 5.5 bartenders per 1,000 residents, the study found.

    Never EVER drank a green beer !
    *
    Not bartenders.....but bars.....per sq. mile ---
    the town I grew up in had the most bars per sq. mile in NY state.
    The reason ?
    GM motor plant employed so many workers back in the good ol' 50's ----
    Lunch break = the saloon bars were packed 3 deep......so the workers didn't want
    to wait around to drink/order their liquor.......more bars kept opening = shorter line.
    All were walking distance from the plant.

    This year's Patty's parade featured 3 hip hop marching bands..........rather odd tradition ?

    Vegas is number 1 by a longshot!

    And the best Coors light I have ever had was green in Tunica. Probably because it was at 33 degrees or less.

    From what people tell me in Ireland it's a minor religious holiday,no big deal. From what I'm told the Irish arrived in New York on the lower east side and picked up the corned beef habit from the Jews who were already there. They decided today was as good a day as any to get together and celebrate their Irish heritage in America.
    This may or not be true but it sounds good to me.
    Joe,did you grow up in Sufferin NY.? There was a big auto plant there years ago. I just thought Sufferin was a great name for any factory town.

    Jersey guy -
    I grew up on the OTHER SIDE of the Tappan Zee Bridge.
    ( East side of it....don't get me started on traffic ! )
    The GM plant soil is all contaiminated - the politicians have
    been trying to develope/sell this land for decades.
    Old GM workers would tell us young guys about rolling 55 gal drums of paint
    + other crap -- out the back door of the plant + pour the contents into the Hudson River.
    No thoughts about it.
    *
    In the old days --- they would be truck freighting those new cars ALL night outta the plant.
    The trucks would be covered when "next year's" models were shipped.

    I grew up close to the Hyatt Roller Bearings plant that made roller bearings for GM.The same thing happened except the toxic waste went into the ground The plant is gone,they brought in 15 ft. of soil from Indiana and built a nine hole golf course. Back in the day they polluted the hell out of Jersey,but nobody really cared,,people were working ,money was flowing and life was good until people started coming up with cancer that worked in and lived near a lot of these places.
