Wee lads and lassies, this contest has been great fun, but there's a little problem — Patch can't tell you who won.
The Leprechauns got antsy. They've blown up our poll. They've left us a message and ran away with our gold. (OK, so it was really just a framed certificate.)
Dear Readers of Patch, we need a new game!
This should be fun, a poll — that's lame!
Give us pictures of people celebrating.
Oh, we don't mind the waiting!
But please, the photos should be tame!
There were 248 votes cast in the poll for the "Best Place to Celebrate St. Patrick's Day," which launched on Monday. It's our largest vote ever, and we thank you for your participation.
Shamrock the House had 95 votes, The Starving Artist had 90 votes and Bleu VooDoo Grill had 58 votes. Each business and event worked hard for these votes and they will still be a part of deciding the winner.
But here's the twist — it's St. Patrick's Day, let's have some fun! Reader photos are going to be how this contest will be won!
Each of the three places listed above will need their fans to give them some love.
We want to see pictures of folks celebrating the green. Each photo submitted will count as one vote. Please be sure to include the name or place where the photo was taken.
Photos may be submitted at this link. The deadline to submit is 6 p.m. Sunday.
A winner will be named on Monday morning.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
