Green River

For St. Patrick’s Day, the city of Chicago (as most of you know) dyes the Chicago River a brilliant shade of green. Turning the River green is huge event that starts promptly in the morning and ends with a parade. Of all the events that happen in Chicago, this one was definitely on our bucket list! We woke up early, had some lucky charms, put on some warm clothes (it was FREEZING), and walked right out our front door to see the river dyed. We had planned on going to the parade but ended up having a date day shopping until we landed ourselves in one of our favorite bars to share beers and the hottest wings I’ve ever had.

It turned out to be such a wonderful day, perhaps my favorite St. Patrick’s Day to date.
