We just got our invitation to the annual St. Patty’s Day party hosted by friends for over 20 years (they had taken over hosting duties from her parents who had hosted a traditional party for around 30 years prior to that). Attendance usually ranges from 30-40 people. Last year’s was held right before the lockdown order. This year the guest list: Seven people are being invited.
At Waveland there was a one armed man selling cold Old Style over the fence at the 5th tee box. We called him Lefty.
The mainstay was at the 7th tee. Got arrested once a year in May and left alone for the rest of the season. Saw him once a week for almost 2 decades.

St. Paddy’s Day - that’s all I can think about.
That’s when this whole thing started.
Cancelled our yearly get-together at Hackney’s on Lake a couple days prior.
I’ll have had 2 shots by the 17th, but still not ready to mingle.
I’m thinkin’ homemade Hackney burgers and bagpipe music on a Zoom party.
I remember going to the Hackney’s off Milwaukee in the north burbs as a kid. So many good memories and burgers. They also had the Simpson’s Arcade Game in the lobby which ate an ungodly amount of my parents quarters. Thanks for the chuckle.
