Even rivers like a “wearing o’ the green”
The Chicago River gets its annual dose of emerald with the dyeing of the river at 10:45 a.m. See it from the east side of the Michigan Avenue bridge, the west side of the Columbus Drive bridge or on upper or lower Wacker Drive between Columbus and Michigan. Free!

Taste Saturday’s high life
The 55th annual Chicago St. Patrick’s Day Parade begins at noon at Balbo and Columbus and proceeds north up Columbus to Monroe. Free! For more information: www.chicagostpatsparade.com

Cathair na Gaillimhe (Galway, to you Yanks) is one of our favorite party towns in Ireland, so it’s no surprise Chicago’s Galway Arms (2442 N. Clark) is one of our favorite places to get our drink on. Doors open at 9 a.m. Call: (773) 472-5555.
