It's almost time for the biggest party of the year!

That's right, St. Patrick's Day is just one week away. It's the day there is no judging and everyone can start drinking at noon without feeling guilty.

If you ask me, there's no better holiday. I love the parade, the corn beef and cabbage, the green beer and of course, the leprechauns!

It's a day we can all celebrate and party like it's 1999. I plan to be in the parade with Producer Mike and then head downtown for some libations and shenanigans. We hope to see you if you're out and about!

The early weather report is not looking good, however. At this point, it looks like it could be cold and rainy. We're still a week out, so that could all change.

But rain or shine, it will be a party!

We'll see you in downtown Cedar Rapids for the best holiday of the year.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
