Luck O'The Neighborhood

Celebrate St. Patrick's Day in your neighborhood restaurant or pub and you'll be a part of reinvesting $2.33 billion in your local community, according to Independent We Stand.

Turns out that 2010 St. Patrick's Day spending was approximately $3.44 billion.

If you plan on celebrating at a national chain restaurant, your local reinvestment drops to only $1.4 billion. So have a green beer and a slice of corned beef and cabbage at a small business, and then get home safely.

Your community will be glad you did.
