If you haven't heard the word "begorrah" pronounced with a southern drawl, hop on down to Savannah to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. The city doesn't have a green river like Chicago, but it manages to make sure that its park fountains and beer taps flow green.
Savannah's claim to fame is that it has "the second-largest St. Patrick's Day Parade in the world." At least they don't try to pretend it’s the largest. Last year's parade drew about 250,000 people to the Savannah Historic District for the parade and River Street fracas that followed.
This year promises to be much the same, with the parade kicking off the festivities on March 16 and a weeklong celebration following with music, food and lots of drinking and cavorting on River Street and in City Market.
