St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner! Although I am not Irish I always make it a tradition to drink a pint of Guiness on St. Patrick's Day. Guiness is my favorite beer and I love the festive traditions associated with St. Patrick's Day.
And speaking of Irish festivities, the Garlick Mustard Pickers will be performing several times this month. You don't know what you're missing if you haven't seen this incredible band. The following is a re-print of an e-mail announcement I received. There are a number of people who receive these e-mails, so I apologize in advance if this is "old news" to you and you have already received this info.
The Badgerland Striders Running Club will once again be hosting its annual South Shore Half-marathon on Saturday, April 7th. The race starts at 8:30 am with registration starting at 7 am. As always, the race starts at the South Shore Pavilion at 2900 S. Shore Drive ( South Shore Park in Bay View). Pre-registration is $10 for Striders members or $12 for non-members. Race-day registration is $20 for both members and non-membrs. In this race you get a pair of gloves instead of a t-shirt.
The stars of this race are our beautiful and priceless County Parks. This race runs almost entirely through five County Parks: South Shore, Bay View, Sheridan, Warnimont and Grant Parks. The half-way point is in Grant Park. After turning around at the half-way point, the participants run north along the same course back to the starting point in South Shore Park. The course runs through Bay View, St. Francis, Cudahy and South Milwaukee.
