St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner. Have you and your fraternity brothers planned how you're going to celebrate the holiday? Sure, you can dig out that green shirt from the laundry basket and add a little food coloring to your food and drink, but if you really want your house to stand out this year, you need a plan.
What to Wear
Start thinking now about what you'll wear to show you're Irish, at least for the day. You want to be hip without crossing the line. Our St. Patrick's Day fraternity t shirt is fun without being over-the-top. Leave the green hair and t shirts of questionable taste to the other Greek houses. Instead, ask for kisses, but in a nice way. The girls will love it. Pair the shirt with jeans and you're done. No need for the crazy hats, beads or other St. Patrick's Day regalia.
What Food to Serve
Greek life is all about entertaining and St. Patrick's Day makes the ideal occasion for hosting a party. You'll need something for your guests to munch on. St. Patrick's Day celebrations usually start early, so you'll have some hungry revelers by nightfall. You don't have to spend a lot of money on food. Roast beef and corned beef sandwiches are a good choice. Whip up some mashed potatoes and soda bread to go with them to make the spread even more Irish.
