It's finally here, Utica's St. Patricks Day Parade kicks off on Saturday morning at 10 and will be followed by everyone's favorite gathering on Varick Street.

I decided it might be a good idea to share a couple tips I've learned over the years and through your Facebook comments on how to survive the 'Wearin' of the Green' in Utica.

In the video, you'll find tips and hints that will help you find a quick drink, short bathroom lines and even a warm place to have a smoke.

Hopefully, this survival guide will help make your Varick Street St. Patricks Day celebration the best one yet.

Do you have any tips to add? Let me know in the comments, on Facebook or email them to me at, and we'll include them in next year's survival guide.
