Ultimate Setup – St Patrick’s Day
Husky Guinness Beer Fridge
Listen up, fact fans: over five million pints of Guinness are sold in the UK on St Pat’s, and 13 million around the world. That’s 150 pints a second. This Guinn-o-fridge holds 30 cans of the black stuff just in case they run out at your local.
Angry Birds Seasons
59p/free, App Store/Android Market
Not content with its Christmas haul, Rovio’s seasonal addition to the Angry Birds line-up now inlcudes stereotyped leprechaun ‘pigs’, pots of gold and an abundance of clovers. Overkill much?
We could have chosen any number of green-tinted cameras, but we resisted the urge in favour of this 14MP snapper, selected for its ability to survive even the most gruelling night on the tiles: waterproof to 10m, crushproof to 100kg and it’ll take a two-metre drop from the bar when you’re standing on it singing Wild Rover. When you wake up with a fuzzy head, its GPS will tell you where you’ve been.
free, App Store
Can’t be in the emerald isle for St Paddy’s? Although it’s a tourist guide, we like that this app comes with a warning citing mild alcohol and tobacco references. Proper Irish, then. Legally, we probably ought to add something about drinking responsibly in this. Drink responsibly. There.
Combination Bottle Lock
Got housemates? Teenage children? Don’t let them get at your Bushmills 16 while you’re swigging pints of stout in O’Flannigans Free House. This four-digit combination lock will keep your whiskey safer than a leprechaun’s gold locker.
