Lounge Cocktail:

March is a fun month. We survived Christmas and made it to a new year and spring is around the corner. And what could be better for all this transition than a hearty dose of alcohol smack in the middle of the month.

A loyal lounger sent in the suggestion for the cocktail of the month. We have to disguise his name but would like to thank him all the same. Thanks E*m*n.

Irish Car Bomb:

1 pint glass (chilled)
Guinness access
1/2 shot Jameson
1/2 shot Bailey's

Fill the chilled pint half full with Guinness. Fill a shot glass half and half using the Jameson & Bailey's.

Drop the shot into the Guinness, Don't think about it too long...Tilt back and slam that puppy down. I've seen many unfortunates chip teeth, so mind your chompers and enjoy.




Guys, be more alert and cautious when getting a drink offer from a girl. There is a drug called beer, that is essentially in liquid form. The most effective varieties are being shipped in from other countries.

"Beer" is now being used by female sexual predators at parties to convince their male victims to have sex with them. The shocking statistic is that this "beer" is available virtually anywhere! All girls have to do is buy a beer or two for almost any guy and simply ask the guy home for no-strings-attached sex.

Men are literally rendered helpless against such attacks. Please! Forward this to every man you know... There is safety in numbers.


Really Late Breaking News

The WP reports that police in Danville, Kentucky are looking for a customer who paid for a $2 order at a Dairy Queen--and got $198 in real change--with a phony $200 bill that featured a picture of George W. Bush and a depiction of the White House with a lawn sign out front reading, "We like broccoli." (1/31/01 Washington Post)


You can't be a Real Country unless you have a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer - Frank Zappa

Lounging Through History:

St. Patrick's Day was celebrated for the first time in America on March 17, 1737, when the Charitable Irish Society, a Protestant group founded that same year, organized a non-religious celebration honoring St. Paddy. It originated in Ireland as a religious holiday honoring the arrival of St. Patrick in 432 A.D. and his death on March 17, 464 A.D. Incidentally St. Patrick was not Irish. He was British, probably Welsh, and never saw Ireland until kidnapped by Irish raiders. After his escape, he became a priest and a bishop and returned to Ireland as a missionary. His success made him patron saint of Ireland. (

Lounging With A Video:
Saving Grace

If you liked Ned Devine. You will probably like this. The boss from Drew Carey is in it along with a bunch of other Irish or maybe Scottish actors and actresses.

Grace is a resident of little country town. Her husband has just died and her comfortable lifestyle is threatened. Her gardener, Drew Carey's boss, asks for some horticultural advise and the games begin. I thought it was funny.

Advice From A Lounger

When I was younger I hated going to weddings. It seemed that all of my aunts and the grandmotherly types used to come up to me, poking me in the ribs and cackling, telling me, 'You're next.'

They stopped after I started doing the same thing to them at funerals.

Lounge Chow: Corned Beef and Cabbage

In the spirit of the drinkinest holiday of the year I always prepare corned beef and cabbage. And I almost always drink. There is something about eating corned beef with cabbage. A dab of mustard and horseradish. And a thick Irish beer, stout, pilsner, lager or ale. Or for that matter a pale ale, bitter, Scottish ale, nut brown ale, weissbier, Belgian beer, Red Ale, Trappist Ale, Porter, and possibly a whisky, neat.

Anyway corned beef and cabbage is easy and tasty. So get out your liquid refreshment, put your helmet on and prepare a meal fit for a bunch of drunken Irish or Irish wannabees.

1 corned beef brisket with spice packet
10 potatoes, washed
5 carrots, stems and tip removed
1 large head cabbage, cut into small wedges

3 Tablespoons Yellow Mustard
2 Tablespoons brown Sugar

Place corned beef in large pot and cover with water. Take the spice packet and pour it into the pot. If you started drinking early: OPEN THE SPICE PACKET AND EMPTY IT INTO THE POT AND THROW AWAY THE EMPTY PACKET.

Bring pot to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cover. Simmer approximately 50 minutes per pound or until tender.

Sometime during the last 10 minutes turn on oven and set at 350 degrees.

Add whole potatoes and carrots, and cook until the vegetables are almost tender. Add cabbage and cook for 15 more minutes.

Remove meat from pot and and brush with glaze. Place meat on a cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes.

Place vegetables in a bowl and cover. Add some of the liquid from pot to the veggies and cover to keep warm.

After baking the glaze on the meat remove and let stand for 5 or 10 minutes. Slice the corned beef across the grain.

An Irish Toast

Did You Know?

Sláinte means 'health', and is a common Irish toast.

Baaaaaaaaaaaaa! Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

"Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer. Oh, I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza."
