St Patrick's Day Parade.

Breakfast with a score of friends at the ungodly hour of 9:00 - still a bit hung-over but not so bad that I didn't try the Haggis and the Scotch Eggs and Orange coloured potatoes.. Considering what was on the table one could have easily concluded that it was Robbie Burns Day but that, it seems, is how the Scots do St. Pat's. There was IrishParty-juice available for the coffee though, as well as jiggy tunes and ballads.

Pipes and Floats and Mounties, Oh My!

Saw Belinda Stronach... She was wearing a green coat this time. Doesn't she ever get tired of switching allegiances??? ;-)

Watched the parade for about an hour, freezing, but in a good-spirited way, then headed east to have a tonne of Polish carbs and meaty-bits at Mazurka on Prince-Arthur. I don't think I'll need to eat until tomorrow... maybe.
4 pics before I catch a nap.
So tired... so full...

ah, i see you were not only on the north side of st. cath, but you were about 10-12 blocks east of me. it was a solid parade. the best was easily the cirque de soleil people.

The Cirque was there?! Damn.
We should have stuck it out a bit longer than we did. Did you get any pics?

admittedly they might not have been associated with Cirque, but they were acrobats nonetheless. it was a floar with orange, white, and green balloons on top, a girl in a hoop hanging off the back (below) and a bunch of acrobats doing flips and whatnot walking behind the float.
