Celtic pizza and congressional theater

We cover a lot of ground today!

Rep. Jim McGovern gives us his thoughts on what's happening with the recent approval of drilling in Alaska, as well as the pitfalls of digging yourself out of all the snow we just got.

Louise Dunphy of Celtic Crossings offers us a quick guide to all your Celtic entertainment this St. Patrick's Day weekend.

We also hear from WAM Theater artistic director Kristen Van Ginhoven on the importance of activism and theater working together, as her company gears up to present "What The Constitution Means to Me" in the spring.

And we eat our way through Pizza Quest II! At the behest of listener Jennifer Vose (and several others), we try out Family Pizzeria Europa here in Springfield.

(And, as always, if you have suggestions for places we should go for Pizza Quest, email us at thefab413@nepm.org or text to 800-639-9120.)
