Bagpipers on Beale Street

Head to Beale Street in Downtown Memphis on Saturday to drink some beer and check out the 38th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade.

The parade starts at 3:30 p.m. at Fourth and Beale and goes up the street to Second and Beale. It’s always a good time. You can never go wrong with beer and bagpipes!

Speaking of, maybe I’ll try Guinness’ new Black Lager. It’s featured in the video below, along with a kilted man and a surprise.

This recipe calls for drunk

I don’t really know how to cook without drinking, but Hannah Hart takes it to a different kind of level. She hosts My Drunk Kitchen, a web video series in which she gets drunk and cooks. It’s pretty funny, as she’s much more successful with the getting drunk part than the cooking anything edible part.

I’m quite the fan of Mexican food, so here’s Hannah getting drunk and barely managing turkey tacos.

Check out this Time interview with Hannah. She says she doesn’t actually drink very much outside of these videos, which might explain why she’s able to get drunk during the time it takes to make a grilled-cheese sandwich.

In the spirit of things, here’s a list from a Kansas City blog on the five best uses for beer in cooking.

I definitely agree with the beer-in-chili assessment. I usually add a bottle of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale to my venison chili aka Fire Hole Chili. Sadly, I’ve not tried the other four recipes. It’s actually kind of embarrassing that I’ve never tried beer-can chicken before, since soon as the weather’s nice I do pretty much all of my cooking outside on the grill. It’s a priority.

Got more of a sweet tooth? Gotcha covered with this Guinness Stout Brownies recipe.

Happy drunk cooking!

In Ireland, Obama downs a Guinness, while the queen weighs her choice of hat

Obama downs a Guinness

Mike is quite the Photoshopper

Of course we’re all familiar with the Dos Equis “most interesting man in the world,” and the awesome meme that the ad campaign has spawned.

But great oogly-moogly this picture of Obama and the First Lady getting all drinky-drinky rocks my face off.

Contrast that display with this video of the old lady queen of England staring blankly while Guinness’ master brewer explains this thing called “beer,” after which she declines a free pint from the man most qualified to pour for royalty.
