Tasty morsels about Chicago's food scene

Happy St. Pat's Day. Now stop pretending you're Irish

| No Comments

The parades and public drunkeness have come and gone, but remnants of St. Patrick's Day remain. (Makes sense, doesn't it, given that today is the actual holiday?)

We happened upon one such item at the Artisan Cellar wine shop in the Merchandise Mart: these limited edition, bottle-shaped Miller Lites in aluminum cans, sporting the catchy "Chi-Rish" phrase and a Chicago flag. Because that's what non-Irish Chicagoans need: one more excuse to pretend they're Irish on St. Patrick's Day.

The label, written by the witty Artisan Cellar staff, is all in good humor. Or so we thought. Until we wandered over to eBay and found this yahoo selling two empty bottles. Asking price for the set: $5.99.
