Surviving Another St Patrick's Day - Chicago Style

Saturday was the St Pat’s day parade and there were thousands of Irish and would be Irish wearing green and acting a little crazy.
As only Chicago can do, we saw a mass of green dye come floating downstream. I’ve seen it about 25 times after the fact and it never fails to get me in touch with my Irish roots.
I never made the noon parade because I came down with a bad case of food poisoning (never eat at a restaurant with no name – will not be on the blog) and wasn’t the same until Monday night.
Needless to say, this was the first time in a long time I didn’t have one cocktail at a St. Patty’s Day celebration.

Good thing the “real” St. Pat’s day doesn’t come until Thursday when I throughly intend to make up for lost time!

Get Your Irish Up This Week!
