Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down: Week Of March 15

Thumbs Up:

  • Shamrock Shakes
    • March is arguably the worst month of the year, but with the worst month comes the best McDonald’s tradition.Shamrock Shakes are a delicious way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day all month long. Three dollars never tasted so good.
  • Shamrocks
    • The inspiration for the shake, and the symbol of St. Patrick’s Day, shamrocks represent good luck and approaching warm weather. It might seem corny, but a four-leaf clover and a good luck wish can offer a much welcome break from the winter blues. 

Thumbs Down:

  • Cornbeef and Cabbage
    • For such an amazing holiday, you would think that the world would decide on a better dish than this one to celebrate with. Worse yet, BC  Dining is surely going to attempt to whip up this duo. Campus awaits seeing corned beef and cabbage’s glam shots featured on the @bc_chefskiss Instagram page. 
  • No parades
    • One of the hallmark celebrations of St. Patrick’s Day is the parades that take place across the country. But, for another year, the pandemic has stripped us of bagpipes, kilts, and drunk pedestrians. Nevertheless, next year will hopefully return this wonderful tradition.
