This Saturday, March 17, 2012 is St. Patrick's Day in Chicago. And you know a city this steeped in Irish history does it like no other city. If you've never seen the dyeing of the river and you are close enough to Chicago to make it happen, you really should. It's quite a site, and a fun, wholesome date idea for your sweetie, or your whole family.
Watch this time-laspe video of the Journeyman Plumbers dyeing the river green.
And if that video convinced you to check out the dyeing of the Chicago river this year, here's a video I made, giving you some tips and history of the upcoming Irish celebration. Shake your shamrocks.
