ADDISON — On St. Patty’s Day, it’s no secret, a lot of Americans do as the Irish and drink beer!

But it may be not as popular of a drinking day as you might think. A recent survey from says only 8% of Americans observing the holiday actually plan on chugging a cold one to “get drunk.”

Seems a bit low, right?

Well, maybe it’s because another “report” is claiming weed is the new green of St. Patrick’s Day. According to a State of Cannabis study from pot delivery company Eaze, there was a 42% increase on pot orders last St. Patrick’s Day. People are bluntly nicknaming it “St. Fatty’s Day”.

Our lads over at Sherlock’s Pub & Grill in Addison aren’t letting some study kill their buzz! For their annual party they’re making sure the regulars are guzzling down a beer … or two… or three…

“It’s the biggest day of the year for Sherlock’s, explained Manager Robert Caldwell. “It’s just crazy the numbers that we do.”

So, whether your green comes in hops or hemp — may the luck of the Irish be with you!
