With St. Patrick’s Day around the corner, the personal-finance website WalletHub today released its report on 2019's Best Cities for St. Patrick's Day Celebrations as well as accompanying videos, along with stats about the holiday in its St. Patrick’s Day infographic.
Guess what? It's totally bogus. It says here that WalletHub compared 200 of the largest U.S. cities across 17 key metrics, ranging from Irish pubs and restaurants per capita to lowest price for a three-star hotel on St. Patrick’s Day to weather forecast. Chicago is #1….not going to argue….but the Quad Cities is NOWHERE to be found? Really? The ONLY bi-state St Patty’s Day Parade in America….
