No Booze On Metro-North Trains For St. Patrick’s Day
Well duh! No surprise there. But I found some surprising facts about the day that everyone is Irish.
Do you treat St.Patrick's Day like most of the nation? It's a festival for all of us, Irish or not. Will you be heading into New York City for the mother of all parades and celebrations? Then be advised.
In a story from NBCconnecticut.com, Metro-North is again issuing this warning to St. Patrick's Day riders. No alcoholic beverages will be allowed on the trains, platforms or at the stations on St.Patrick's Day. For full service info on the train schedules go to MTA.com
The St.Patrick's Day Parade in the city is without question, legendary! But did you know that according to Wallethub.com, that Boston is the best place to party? Guess what, Boston isn't the city with the highest Irish population!
Being from New England, that surprised me. In Wallethub's 2016 St.Patrick's Day by the numbers survey we find tid-bits like: St. Louis has the highest number of Saint Patrick’s Day parties and festivals per 100,000 residents, which is 33 times more than in Phoenix, which is the city that has the lowest.
Hold on to your hats - Pittsburgh is the city with the highest percentage of Irish population, 16.4 percent, and that's 55 times greater than in Hialeah, Fla., the city with the lowest. Want to know where you'll pay the most and least for a beer? It's in the survey too. Just make sure you aren't bringing any booze on Metro-North.
