And happy Green Beer Day, Bobcats.
It’s time you head to Court Street clad in your favorite green clothes — many opt for a Boston Celtics Larry Bird jersey — and drink green beer. The festivities were taken from our foes over in Oxford, but we like to think we have made it our own in a way.
Green Beer Day was around when OU had it’s quarterly schedule, but has stuck around when the university switched to semesters in 2012.
And though it’s in the spirit of Saint Patrick’s Day, it isn’t the average hootenanny. Many students say it feels like a fest in the middle of the week, causing plenty of reason to skip class.
Whether you’re headed to the bars or skipping the event all together, this is just another reminder of how there is always a cause for celebration here in Athens.
