Unlike most people, I kind of like the traditional drinking holidays -- the ones where all your friends post on Facebook that they're going to stay home and leave that particular night to the amateurs. St. Patrick's Day has always been one of my favorites. On Thursday I there was a really cool celebration at Big Boss (which will always be Horniblow's in my mind) with food trucks and bands. My companion wasn't feeling well, so we left before The Trousers played, but I did get to see Skullbuckle for the first time. Despite -- or maybe because of -- the atmospherics, my photos really didn't come out well. But I did get video of "Girl in a Truck."

I also decided during the evening that someone around here really needs to start an all-N.C. fried seafood truck. If I had more restaurant experience I'd borrow the cash and do it myself. If someone knows of one already in the area, please let me know.
