Here are some fun facts about Sunday's annual St. Patrick’s Day Breakfast, from the the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority’s food and beverage provider, Levy Restaurants.

-- It will take approximately 12 pounds of coffee, or an estimated 39,000 beans, to make all the coffee that will be served Sunday morning.

-- It would take one cow a full day to produce all the cream that will be used for the coffee.

-- It would take four chickens one year to produce the 984 cage-free eggs, hand-cracked at Sunday’s breakfast.

-- More than 20 servers will attend to the guests, seated in 460 chairs, at 100 tables, as they use more than 1,200 utensils.

-- Bakers will start working at 4:00 a.m. with the kitchen in full swing around 6:00 a.m.

-- The convention center, built in 2004 and located along the South Boston waterfront, is Massachusetts’ second-largest public works project.
