Celebrating St. Patrick

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

It’s a weekend for honoring St. Patrick — the Romano-Briton and Christian missionary and one of the patron saints of Ireland. Indeed, the continuing global celebration of this saint, who lived roughly from AD 387 to 461, has transformed itself into a celebration of Ireland and the Irish. Count us in on the festivities.
