4 Not-Irish Events This Weekend In The Hudson Valley
Of course, everyone has St. Paddy’s day on their mind this weekend but what if I told you that there were other things happening this weekend that had nothing to do with corned beef, cabbage, or even beer? Well actually they might have beer but it would be green.
I went looking for things you could do this weekend even on Friday St. Paddy’s day that have nothing to do with being Irish and I was surprised by what I found. If you are looking to get out with friends this weekend and you want to say “No” to anything Irish themed I have a few ideas for you.
