St. Patty's Day and Weekend Happenings

I feel like it's been forever since I've done a weekend update.  Live got in the way, as did my real job.  Anyway being that I'm Irish and tomorrow is St. Patty's day I figured I'd kick off the weekend updates again and make them a regular weekly feature as it was always intended.  

Quick recap of spots hosting something special for St. Pats on Wednesday: Dreamland, 12 Fox, Twisted X all have something special listed for tomorrow.  Get out, wear something green, drink something green and eat something crazy.
