Acting Irish Down Under

For St. Patrick's Day in Australia, we put on our green shirts and met up with some fellow American expats at an Irish bar in the early afternoon. We enjoyed some drinks, and with the purchase of a Guinness beer, you got these fun hats (Zack gave me his-I hate beer!).

Me, Alena, Emily, Adam, and Todd (Zack took the picture).
After leaving PJ O'Brien's, we went to a nearby restaurant with some Irish food and drink specials and live music. I enjoyed my beef and Guinness pie (it didn't taste like beer) with chips (fries), and we taught the others how to play six-handed euchre. The girls won!

Outside on the sidewalk (for $10) you could try to win $50 by riding this bike from one line to the other. The trick was that the handlebars were backward, so when you turned one way, it went the opposite way. We chipped in to let Adam give it a go, but sadly he only won some stickers. Oh well!

This shot was taken a few days before St. Patrick's Day, but I thought it was appropriate to include at the end of this post. Hopefully you all had a good Irish celebration and found your pot of gold at the end of the rainbow! 

Stay tuned for upcoming posts about more fun in the Grampians and our day at the Grand Prix!
