Top o’ the morning to ya’! Happy St. Patrick’s Day Week! This has to be one of the biggest holidays celebrated regardless of whether or not you are Irish, but do go pull out something green to wear and maybe check out the Chicago River if you have never seen it dyed green. It is quite the site in person!
