Alright, wed party with this dude.

Combine unseasonably warm weather and a Saturday St. Patrick's Day, and you have an equation for a shitshow.

Parade officials predict 400,000 revelers will make their way downtown tomorrow.

Police expect at least over 300,000 to wander toward the parade.

Parade officials tout the number as a sign of awesomeness.

Police tout the number as a sign they will have their hands full.

Scene expects 26,127 of those people to puke on a sidewalk.

Whatever way it shakes out, it's going to be crowded downtown tomorrow. RTA has a revised holiday schedule, plenty of roads are going to be closed, parking is going to be at a premium, and the police will be out in full force with checkpoints and increased patrols.

Be safe, plan ahead, and if you still don't know where to drink or what to eat, do check out our helpful St. Patrick's Day Primer. It even includes advice from a good DUI lawyer, just in case.
