Everyone is Irish on St. Paddy’s Day, when Chicago dyes the River green and presents the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade. Cantina Laredo in River North will welcome celebrants for a shamrockin’ good time on Saturday, March 17. From 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m., St. Paddy’s partiers may enjoy modern Mexican dishes from Chef Damon Workman’s brunch, lunch and dinner menus, along with $5 pints of green Mexican beer (Dos Equis Lager). Get into the St. Paddy’s spirit with Irish tunes and Latin beats spun by DJ Matt Rochford in the upstairs lounge from noon to 9 p.m.
In addition to the green beer, Cantina Laredo will pay homage to Dia de San Patricio with a Lucky ‘Rita (frozen Casa ‘Rita swirled with Midori Melon liqueur) for $7. Lucky ‘Ritas will run March 16 to March 18.
