St. Pattys Day Flashback!

Happy St. Patrick's Day people! Hopefully this day is full of green beer and fun! I was going through old photos and I found one of my favorites, a series of photos from St. Patty's Day 2011! Metal Head Ned, Vinny and I painted the town green that year and did a bar crawl around Grand Rapids. Things got out of hand and one too many Killians had been drank... BUT it was quite the successful St. Patrick's Day! Check out these photos from then! Can you remember your favorite St. Patrick's Day?
