The forgotten Colorado Irish of Evergreen Cemetery
As you drive through the historical Evergreen Cemetery in Leadville, Colorado. You see beautiful well-kept grounds. But towards the back, you will find over 1,400 forgotten Irish men, women, and children from the late 1800s. The graves are deeply sunken because the original pine caskets have long since deteriorated. There are no headstones, just a few wooden markers and iron gates that surround some of the plots.

Medusa Brewing Wake of the Medusa Irish Stout
Earlier this month we had St. Patrick's Day, one of the few "holidays" of the year that are not only beer-centric, but also devoted to a specific beer style. While some people might prefer Irish red, pale lager doused in green food coloring, or even whiskey, most people immediately associate St. Patty's with Irish stouts. The most popular and well known Irish stout is definately Guinness, even a devoted local beer drinker like me thoroughly enjoyed a 4 pk of Guinness draught stout earlier this month. In addition to that Guinness I've also been sampling plenty of local takes on this classic beer style. A great example is Wake of the Medusa, a dry Irish stout from Medusa Brewing Company. Medusa Brewing Wake of the Medusa is brewed with Bramling Cross hops and loads of roasted malt, and is available in the early spring on draft and in 16 oz cans.
The oldest retail business in Kansas City, Missouri is 135 years old this year
If you research commerce in Kansas City, you might wonder which retail business is the oldest. Browne's Irish Marketplace is the oldest retail business in the city beginning its first sale in the late 1800s. More specifically, it began in 1887 by County Kerry, Ireland immigrants, Ed and Mary Flavin. The name of their store then was Flavin's Market which was located at 27th & Jefferson. The loft above the market was where they lived. In 1901, a new store was built at 33rd & Pennsylvania where it still sits.
