Kathmandu, 16 March
It was all green at Irish Pub, Lazimpat last weekend, as they celebrated St. Patrick’s Weekend (a day wasn’t enough!). St. Patrick’s Day, an Irish celebration mostly popular for its association with alcohol consumption, is celebrated worldwide for cultural reasons rather than religious ones. And the weekend event at Irish Pub brought the Irish festival to the locals of Kathmandu.
For anyone who showed up in green, there was a Leprechaun shooter waiting. There was a bottle free with every two bottles of beer. And keeping up the spirit of drinking, a competition was held to drink three bottles of beer in the shortest time (winning time: 1 minute 40 seconds). Live performance by The Sarodist and guest appearance by the guitarists from Liquid Inspiration – Ashish P. Pradhan and Ashesh Bhattachan provided music for the two-day long celebration.
