Travelogue: Chicago for St. Patrick’s Day

March 2016
Where We Stayed: The Westin Chicago River North

One of my favorite things about Chicago is seeing the river dyeing each St. Patrick’s Day. They dye the river NEON GREEN. I went for a weekend trip to see all things green and eat some deep dish pizza (Lou Malnati’s this time around). I also made sure to get some Garrett’s popcorn. The one huge disappointment about the trip was that the Bean was closed! I nearly cried (you all know how much I love the Bean). Oh well, better luck next time!
