A St. Patrick's Day Picnic

There are many reasons to celebrate this Saturday: it's the weekend, it's St. Patrick's Day and it's the beginning of spring. Dust off those baskets, those blankets, and those sunglasses -- and grab a few beers. You deserve a long, leisurely picnic out in the sun; an afternoon nap is optional, but recommended.
