Where is the best place to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Chicago?

“The Emerald Isle in Edison Park, especially when Callaghan and West are playing. In the afternoon, kids get involved. Much better than the crowded hipster yell-in-the-ear bars around Wicker Park and Lakeview.” — Mark Andel, Hot Dog Diaries

“The Green River.” — Sher BonDurant, On Tap in the Windy City

“At home, under the covers, with Netflix and noise-cancelling headphones.” — Julie VonderHeide Hammerle, Hammervision

“I wish I knew, I generally stay away, here’s a good place to be on St. Patrick’s day, driving uber or lyft.” — Brian Kremen, ConFIdences

“Well like a lot of things in Chicago, there are a Northside and a Southside version. There is the Irish American Heritage Center on the north, and there is something similar on the south, though I cannot remember the exact name. Personally, the best place for me to celebrate is at home with a glass of Irish Whiskey and no crowds.” — Michael Messinger, Mysteries of Life
