Sobering Kansas City St. Patrick's Day

The bars & restaurants are shut down but stereo-typically horrible locals in the know already have orders of corned beef and cabbage takeout on the way. Moreover, most liquor stores are committed to staying open till kingdom come . . . Anything less would create a REAL panic from which this nation would never recover.

And so, this is a bittersweet holiday wherein locals will have to find something better to do than boozing . . .


This is just an honest question looking for ideas . . . Because social distancing prevents us from watching P.S. I Love You and spooning with our most dedicated readers . . . This year at least.

Here's my St Patrick's Day recipe:

Boil Rice.
Add five skinless mice.
Simmer mice and rice.
Add wing of bat.
Add ear of cat.
Fried Rice with mice.
Is juicy and nice.

Is the bar & restaurant closed to inside seating mandatory? What's the penalty if you don't close? Yank your license?

I did notice there is an exception for funerals. Might as well have those wakes and funerals at the bars and restaurants because a huge number of these businesses will die along with workers' livelihood.
