Day Drinking



I thought about calling this post ‘My Weekend in Pictures’ but Day Drinking just seemed WAY more accurate!




Saturday began in downtown St. Louis at 8am with Pints and Pancakes…

No explanation necessary…




We started with some Guinness (I mixed mine with cider) before moving on to more beers and Mimosas!




Initially, the bar was pretty empty but after the St. Patrick’s Day race ended, the bar became more crowded with runners seeking beer.






The weather was cool, so around noon we ditched the parade for the casino and some basketball games.

Massive quantities of food followed…

Day drinking requires a certain amount of energy!  After the basketball game, we left the city and may or may not have crashed a 5th birthday party at the bowling alley.

Ok, our friends are related to said 5 year old, but the BOY and I were crashers.  Around 6:00pm, we finally made our way back to our friend’s house after a long day of food, beer, and fun!

The BOY headed straight for the deer jerky while the rest of us dug into the White Chocolate Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.  I also made a cup of tea.




It felt amazing to put up my feet!  We relaxed for the next hour before ending our day with dinner and a rerun of the latest Justin Timberlake Saturday Night Live.  By 10:00pm, the four of us were all in bed.  When you’re over 30, it’s tough to transition day drinking into night drinking.  Luckily, we packed more than enough excitement into our day!  The BOY and I were sad to say good bye to our friends this morning, but we already made have plans to see each other again this summer!



How was your St. Patty’s Day?

Are you a day drinker?

  1. DAY DRINKER (sung to the tune of Day Tripper)… I wanna be a day drinker…. instead I am a tax doer…

    beer for brekkie, what a concept!

    welcome back…. hugs from mom.

  2. Love pancakes and beer for breakfast! All the food throughout the day looks awesome too! I love day drinking during summer sports games and basketball

    • Yes…I think the summer is perfect for BBQ’s and day drinking! I just can’t wait for the weather to warm up! It’s amazing how well pancakes and beer go together! Ha ha!

  3. I definitely prefer to drink during the day. The weathers usually nicer, there’s more to do and by the time your hangover kicks in, you can sleep through it like a champ. Looks like you guys had fun… love the festive straws with your beers.

  4. That sounds like my kind of day! Guinness and cider mixed? Sounds good! I could definitely be a day drinker. Loved the pics. Thanks for sharing!!

  5. I’ve never been a day drinker, but what a fun day! Guinness + cider = awesome. Love that you ended it with a cup of tea 🙂
