10 reasons for optimism after the Patriots loss
11. It's almost Saint Patrick's Day
Boston's favorite socializing holiday is fast approaching. People come from around the country to pretend they're Irish and enjoy St. Patrick's Day in Boston. And you know what? It's worth it. (Take it from this Boston writer who was in Vegas for the holiday last year. Not as fun. Vegas!!) Southie's booming now, so enjoy the parade, then wander down Broadway or over to the waterfront for a good meal or a respectable pint.
