Irish or not, a lot of people in our country enjoy going out and raising a beer or three to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Here in Chicago, the holiday can be truly epic. Our city not only hosts the second-largest parade in the country – officials even temporarily turn the Chicago River green.
Bottom line? If you want to celebrate St. Paddy’s Day in Chicago, you definitely won’t be partying alone. This year, the festivities may even extend throughout [...]
