Every year, St. Patrick’s Day is an opportunity for everyone across the country to wear their best green, watch local parades, and go out for a night of drinking with their buddies, but in Boston, MA, St. Patrick’s Day is a big deal. That’s because one of Boston’s many claims to fame is its Irish heritage. So if you’re in Boston for St. Patrick’s Day, then check out these local events!

Hyundai is a brand that puts an emphasis on creating quality vehicles at affordable prices. While that may seem too good to be true, keep in mind that Hyundai also backs its engineering with a standard 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. The result is a dramatic sales increase in the past few years among the average American driver, but they aren’t the only ones getting behind the wheel of a Hyundai. We here at Empire Hyundai know of a few celebrities who drive Hyundai vehicles.
The pop star behind the hit song “Gangam Style,” PSY usually rides through South Korea in a Hyundai Equus. Quite fitting, since, according to a few YouTube sources, “Gangam Style” is a South Korean district where people tend to live the life of luxury.
Oscar-winning actors tend to recognize quality, but some, like Jeff Bridges, go beyond just buying a vehicle. Bridges has been the spokesperson of Hyundai for 10 years now. Bridges continues to drive home a message of quality and affordability.
While he may not be tearing through urban streets in a Hyundai, Tyrese Gibson has his own history with the brand. The Fast and the Furious star originally learned to drive in a Hyundai, perhaps inspiring his love of all things automotive.
