Today is St. Patrick's day. Is it only a holiday for catholic Irish? In NYC, the big 5th Avenue parade is run by a Catholic Org. (thereby prohibiting gays), but is labeled as an "Irish Pride" Parade, but we never hear about the protestant side of the Irish? [more inside]

Being 1/2 Irish I really should know the answers to these questions, but I don't. This year I'm taking over the St. Patrick's Day dinner from my mom. 1) How much corned beef and cabbage do I need for 7 adults and three kids? 2) Is there a traditional Irish dessert (besides whiskey) that should be served afterwards? 3) What about appetizers? 4) Are the draft bottles of Guinness as good as the cans? 4b) Are they pint-sized? 5) Any other tips, other than not wearing orange?
