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

Take a trip to Cathair na Gaillimhe (or at least a pub named after it):
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.
