San Francisco’s St. Patrick’s Day 2009 (aka “Shamrock Day”) a Sedate Affair

Tuesday, March 17th, 2009

Now back in the day, a place like the Little Shamrock on Lincoln in the Inner Sunset would be hopping on Saint Patrick’s Day, but tonight didn’t seem all that bustling at all. Mind you, the place was full, but it didn’t seem as busy as in years past.

Click to expand. Back in the day, pre-recession, you’d have a crowd of a hundred or so on the sidewalk in front of LS waiting to get in on “Shamrock Night.”  

The same could be said for the Irish-type bars in the Inner Richmond District as well. The Plough and Stars, Abbey Taven, the Bitter End and the like on Clement and Geary just didn’t seem to be all that busy.

Oh well.

Now about that “Shamrock Day” – it’s the politically correct term, apparently, so the wee ones won’t go Catholic on you, or something. (Yish.)

See you next year.
