From a press release:
Parade Chairman Ginny Kelly has announced that Cathal Armstrong has been chosen Grand Marshal of the Washington, D.C. St. Patrick’s Day Parade. This year’s parade, the 41st, will step-off at noon, Sunday, March 11, 2012 on Constitution Avenue, N.W. from Seventh to Seventeenth Streets.
Cathal Armstrong, a native of Dublin, emigrated to the U.S. in 1992 and has since distinguished himself as a chef and an entrepreneur. With his wife, Meshelle, he has established a highly regarded family of restaurants including Restaurant Eve, The Majestic, PX, Eamonn’s A Dublin Chipper, Virtue Feed & Grain and most recently Society Fair.

I’m gonna be honest – I didn’t even realize we had a St. Patrick’s parade. Anyone ever go? And while we’re on the topic – anyone have a favorite bar to go to on St. Patrick’s Day?
