Any St. Patrick’s Day plans? Either way, we’re sure you have time to stop by your favorite local barbershop for a cold one, a cut, and a shave. Plus, beginning today, if you call in to set up a St. Patrick’s Day appointment, we’ll throw in a Harbor Barber T-shirt for free (while supplies last). St. Patrick’s Day, as we’re sure you already know, is a celebration of the life of St. Patrick, patron saint of Ireland. Born in Roman Britain (oddly enough) and subsequently taken to Ireland at the age of 16 as a slave, St. Patrick eventually escaped slavery, though returned to Ireland around the year 432 to spread Christianity, establish churches and schools, and even drive the snakes away (the last one MIGHT be a legend). At any rate, a little bit of history never hurt anyone. Besides, it’s not like we’ll be talking about it on the day; we’ll mostly drink, try a traditional Irish dish that we would otherwise never order (but we did this time because it’s a “special”), and maybe wear green so that one guy at the bar doesn’t have an excuse to pinch us in front of our friends. Anyway, if you feel like getting cleaned up, now is the time schedule that appointment. Happy St. Patrick’s Day from all of us here at Harbor Barber.
