How to enjoy your St Patrick’s Day like a Stud!

St Patrick’s Day is approaching and Rogelio tells you how to optimize your game to take advantage of Guinness, leprechauns and hot chicks ready to party. If you are a bachelor and looking forward to the 17th, you must read his advice!


You know, I always say this. St Patrick’s Day should be one month before St. Valentine’s Day and not the other way around. If St Patrick’s Day fell on the 14th February and St Valentine’s Day fell on the 17th March, then that’d give you one whole month to romance the lady that you probably hooked up with in St Patrick’s Day. Really, that’d be much more convenient.

Thing is, St Patrick’s Day is the perfect day to party your derriere off as a bachelor and meet women wanting to rock and roll. I have partied St Patrick’s Day in 5 countries and I have actually lived in Dublin and done the whole weekend bender in which you don’t even pass by your house from Friday afternoon until Monday morning to have a few hours of sleep. Even in cities that have little to do with being Irish and St Patrick’s Day (e.g Madrid in Spain), this festivity is taken as a chance to get drunk and hook up with chicks, all in the name of leprechauns and Guinness. Personally, I think we all have a little Irish inside so I am all up to party in whichever country I happen to be at on March 17th.

I know many of you are looking forward to this Saturday and it will be wild. Guinness and other lovely intoxicating liquids will be flowing like the River Liffey does through Dublin. Alcohol, loud music, leprechauns and hot drunk chicks wanting to have fun are ensured on Saturday. The question is, are you ready for it and, most importantly, is your game on par?


Rogelio’s Tip to optimize your game for St Patrick’s Day: Get that mane rocking

If having an awesome mane wasn’t that essential to hooking up with hot chicks, I would not have called my site Manly Curls. Here at Manly Curls, we want you to take your hair to the next level and you certainly are going to need that extra hair level for St Patrick’s Day. After all, it is a key day to meet women.

Moisturize that mane, trim if necessary and just make it look the part. If you have wavy hair (Type I and II), then use some hair mousse to give it volume. If you have coily hair (Type III and IV), you are better off using some leave-in conditioner and styling with your fingers. If you have Type V hair (kinky), try a leave-in conditioner with a tiny bit of coconut butter spread through your fingers. Or try other stuff but just make sure your mane is at its max. If you have straight hair, me so sorry (nah, follow the same advice as for wavy haired dudes).

Rogelio’s Tip to optimize your game for St Patrick’s Day: Get creative

The first time I partied in a St Patrick’s Day, I was baffled at how serious people took it in terms of dressing up. I have been to huge carnivals (such as those in the Canary Islands) but boy, do people love their St Patrick’s Day. In reality, people just love dressing up and St Patrick’s Day serves as a great scapegoat because otherwise you better explain to me how dressing up as a Nascar racing car (not as a driver, the actual Nascar car) and running up and down O’Connell’s Street in Dublin as people cheer you serves to celebrate “being Irish”.

For stud-value, I recommend you to be blunt and to the point with your dressing up. I dressed up with a sleeveless T-shirt in which I wrote “Kiss Me and Make Me Irish” and wore a flamboyant clover-stamped cowboy hat. Despite the tackiness of the matter, you’d be surprised at how it worked. Chicks would stop me in the middle of the street to have their picture taken with me and you bet your sweet locks that every time I stepped inside a pub to have a cold Guinness, my silly T-shirt was a great way to break the ice with the ladies. Oh, and its conversion was great (I will leave to your imagination what conversion means). Seriously, everyone is drunk in St Patrick’s Day so you’ll get away with a lot of stupid stuff that would otherwise shoot down your game. Get creative.

Rogelio’s Tip to optimize your game for St Patrick’s Day: Get a wingman

Possibly one of the most important parts of going female hunting. The right wingman will optimise your game because:

a) You will complement each other and create beautiful synergies which will enhance the communicational flow when approaching a pack of females. Read, you approach the target chick while your friend entertains her ugly/uninteresting/possibly interesting girlfriend. Don’t be greedy and make sure to return the favour to him!

b) A guy walking around alone dressed up in a bunny suit and trying to hit on chicks looks lame. However, pair two dudes dressed up as bunnies and knowing how to complement each other’s game and you have a winning combo that will get you those extra points in those crucial game moments.

Rogelio’s Tip to optimize your game for St Patrick’s Day: Get the authorities on your side

If you should learn anything from gangster movies such as Scarface or The Godfather, it’s that having the authorities on your side makes thing much easier. Now, before I get any of you guys in the military or police trying to accuse me of promoting the bribing of authorities, I will tell you all that by having the authorities on your side, I am talking about being nice to them and using your social and gentleman’s skills to enhance your game.

St Patrick’s Day is a very stressful day for those who have to work on that day so that your drunk ass doesn’t get into a fight, pass out in public, die from alcohol poisoning or get lost because you decided to venture into an unknown part of Brooklyn at 6AM on Sunday morning looking for the house of some chicks who told the friend of your wingman that they’ll continue the partying there (not that I should know anything about this…). No, really, they (authorities) appreciate any good acts from your side when it comes to helping them handle the chaos of the day.

When I was in Dublin for St Patrick’s Day, a dude had a seizure on a very busy street as a parade was going through. Apparently, he was epileptic and he wasn’t used to drinking. He had a few drinks and started convulsing on the middle of the busy street. When I saw him convulsing, I headed towards him and cleared the area so that people would leave enough space for him to continue convulsing until he stopped (for the record, never restrain a person having a seizure, just clear the area so he/she doesn’t bang his head against anything). I waited until the ambulance and police came over and took him away.

Because of this, the two Gardai (Irish for police) who saw me helping the man thanked me and one of them asked me if I wanted to go live on national TV for a quick interview. I said yes and she looked for the TV anchor who was covering the event so she’d interview me. Because I was interviewed in the middle of the street with everyone looking at me, as soon as I finished the interview (it was only a minute or two), a flock of chicks surrounded me as if I were a rock star and my fellow wingman and I hopped to the next bar with a pack of 6 hot groupies with us.

Apply this concept to anything authoritarian. Police, parade stewards and even nightclub bouncers, and you will see that the right attitude and words will make your partying easier and allow you to increase your sphere of influence as you reach to more ladies with savour faire. Be like wata!

St Patrick’s Day is a day to express the little Irish we all carry inside. A day to enjoy and have fun, it is the perfect opportunity to welcome Spring and start warming up for what will be serious business in 2 or 3 months when it gets warm and hot, and the weekends start filling up with plans to down beers like a champ and practise the old art of drunken seduction. Whatever your excuse on the 17th, dress up, down a few Guiness with your buddies and express your Irishness, because on this day, we are all Irish!

Adh mor agus slan!

All the best.

      Hi Stewart,

      You know, I’m happy you mention this because I was thinking about this the other day. I have had my curls at all lengths possibly and have done a lot to them so I am going to explore that option in the near future. Keep an eye here as I will be talking about this and more as we go along.

      All the best.
