St Patrick’s Day Mayhem:

The Murders of Michael Sarti & Jack Sweeney

Happy St Patrick’s Day! What’s not to love about this holiday? Everything is green and Irish themed, there are parades and festivals and of course there is booze. It’s a pretty good time. And I’ve heard, no one does St Patrick’s Day like New York. Unfortunately sometimes the alcohol fueled partying takes a turn for the worst.
