As I was gathering my camera and notebook, I heard the last of the bagpipers' performance. I love bagpipes and was disappointed that I had just missed them, though I did spy several adorable sets of hairy knees. I love bagpipes and, not gonna lie, the swagger of men in kilts. The duo Emerald Dawn was playing in the parking lot, kids were enjoying a bouncy bounce, hayrides and face painting, and adults were wandering with beers in hand.
Sponsored and hosted by Duffy's Tavern, this event was the first of its kind in Lake George with proceeds to benefit the Make a Wish Foundation, the Lake George Skate Park Fund and Save a Stray.
Neither of us is at all Irish, but my husband and I both put on green shirts and later returned to Lake George for a drink at Duffy's. It occurred to me that this St. Patrick's thing has dragged on for a few days, so I asked Tony (the aforementioned husband) how long he supposed this would go on? 'Til the beer runs out I guess. Good answer. He's not really a funny guy, but once in awhile he possesses a good bit of insight. And I'm always willing to help use up all that Guinness.

Details on Duffy's will involve a return trip; they were just too busy to allow me to get all the usual details. Guess I'll have to drag Pam out for another look.
