Top o’ the afternoon to ya! And a happy Evacuation… er… St. Patrick’s Day as well.

Where’s your green? We’ve been wearing ours prominently. An around-the-newsroom roundup:

Irish Soda Bread

What’s St. Patrick’s Day without a little corned beef and cabbage? Radio Boston’s Anthony Brooks visited the Boston Brisket Co. in South Boston. They sell about $1 million worth of gray corned beef for the holiday.

Here & Now yesterday dove into the world of traditional Irish soda bread. WBUR’s Robin Young spoke with Ed O’Dwyer, of the Society for the Preservation of Irish Soda Bread, and Here & Now’s resident chef helped judge a soda bread contest. They’ve gathered a handful of delicious recipes, too.

So much of traditional Irish culture revolves around the great music the isle has produced. Here & Now today spoke with the new king’s of the Irish ballad, The High Kings. And you couldn’t have St. Paddy’s Day in Boston without Hub-based Irish-American punk rockers The Dropkick Murphys. On Point had them live in-studio this morning.

What’s your favorite way to celebrate the holiday(s) in Boston?
