Chicago celebrates St. Patrick’s Day in epic ways. Weber Grill Restaurant, located right downtown, is no exception!

You can just enjoy a pint of Guinness in the dining room, or grab a full Irish breakfast before the Saturday festivities at the downtown location! During the day, you can also try the restaurant’s house-made, smoked corned beef.

The Dyeing of the Chicago River begins at 9 a.m. on March 17. If you want to participate, you may have to arrive early and camp out for a spot, since the event can best be seen from the East side of Michigan Ave., the West side of Columbus Dr., or Wacker Dr. (upper or lower) between Michigan Ave. and Columbus Dr.

The parade itself, a Chicago institution, steps off at noon from Balbo and Columbus. The floats, marching bands, performers, and more will go north on Columbus Dr. The viewing stand is right in front of Buckingham Fountain.

When you get hungry, catch Weber Grill Restaurant in between events, or join after! The restaurant is located right on State St., just a 10-minute walk away from the festivities (depending where you’re watching). That makes it a great option for celebrating the day!

We recommend taking public transportation if you can. And, if you desire a great seat for the Dyeing, you’re going to want to get there extremely early. You may wish to make sure you have a seat on this day, a busy one for many area restaurants. Reserve your spot at Weber Grill Restaurant here.

It’s sure to be an exciting day, full of the green of the Emerald Isles and lots of Irish-themed food. We love to celebrate spring in Chicago, along with recognizing the heritage of many of our neighbors, so don’t miss out this weekend!
