Things to do for March 13, 2009
Deadly Sins, Beer Mimosas and South Side Irish
The weekend is dyeing.
Watching the Chicago River turn green may be part of your annual St. Pat's tradition, but shivering amidst the suburban masses is not. So arrive early to stake a prime view in this snug riverside den, where the coldest (and greenest) thing will be your $4 Miller Light.
Why look, little Rednofive is now officially a tween. Time really flies when you're sweating on that dance floor. Celebrate with an hour of gratis appetizers, a sultry fashion show and… a rock performance? Looks like someone's entering those challenging Hot Topic years.
Even the most snobbish North Sider—so smug about his tapas bars, lavish brunches and 100 years without a pennant—can't help but love the South Side Irish Parade. But it's probably a good idea to travel in a pack… and with beer.
You expect a sizzling time when those bacon-fetishists at the Publican launch brunch, but it's actually the Beer Mimosa that will catch your attention first. It's exactly what it sounds like, plus we can't think of a better way to wash down those Spicy Pork Rinds.
