When is the best time to drink a Bloody Mary? Is there a bad time to drink a Bloody Mary? The best time to drink a Bloody Mary is definitely when you are hung over.

What’s the best way to ensure a hangover on the day after Saint Patrick’s Day? Car bombs, Irish pancakes, Guinness, Guinness and more Guinness!

What did you do last year to celebrate St. Paddy’s Day? I helped my grandmother work at the St. Paddy’s celebration on Main Street in North Myrtle Beach. This year I’m going all out though!

What are you doing this year? I work the morning bartending shift. I am going to dress up, then I’ll probably bar hop and see what Myrtle Beach has to offer.

What’s your most memorable St. Pats? When I lived in Wisconsin I went to go see Flogging Molly in Madison. It was a fantastic show! We went out on the town after it was crazy. People everywhere!

Are you Irish? I am on my mother’s side. I’m Irish, Polish, German and Native American. Mostly Irish and Polish.

Is it true what they say... do Irish people have a drinking gene that allows you to drink like a fish? It’s either Irish or German because my family has been drinking great beers since I can remember.

How many beers does it take until you don’t remember? Beers are tricky. I can keep calm drinking beers. It’s when I’m drinking liquor that there is a problem.

What one tip do you have for drinkers on their St. Patrick’s Day celebration? Stay hydrated, have a blast and get a designated driver.

Is it true what they say... do Irish people have more luck than the average Joe? I’m not very lucky. Haha! Maybe 100 percent Irish do.

What would you do if you found a four leaf clover? Press it in a photo album.

What would you do if you met a leprechaun? Probably freak out.

What would you do if he gave you all his gold coins? Buy a new car. Mine is falling apart. My ’96 Acura, it has seen better days!

What’s your dream car? Any two-seater convertible! We do live in Myrtle Beach!

Will you give the leprechaun a ride? Sure, why not? I’ll give him a tour of the town.
