I went out to an Irish pub last night, but didn't stay long. Too noisy and smoky. I did acquire a nice Guinness drink coaster ("join the Guinness Party of Canada -- make St. Patrick's Day a national holiday"), and was entertained by a bagpipe player in full highland regalia (the Irish highlands, presumably).

I've been listening to a lot of Widespread Panic lately. They seem to be one of my current favourite bands. I've also been dipping into my Van Morrison discs, but haven't quite formed an opinion of him yet. I will be listening more, though.

I ordered a few CDs today: Cannonball Adderley's Somethin' Else, Béla Fleck's Drive, and Van Morrison's Into the Music. I usually order books and CDs from, because they offer free shipping within Canada on orders over $39. Good deal.
