Another year, another Saturday-before-St.-Patrick's-Day of donning green from head to toe and drinking Jameson until the wee hours of the afternoon, when you pass out for a nap, wake up, and order pizza. Not your scene? We hear you. That's why we're presenting a much more delicious (and less headache-inducing) way to celebrate St. Paddy's.
These eight Chicago pubs offer some of the best Irish food you'll find in the city. And, in a city full of Irish pride, that's saying a lot. So, order the fish and chips, dig into the corned beef, and wash it all down with a pint of Guinness. With sustenance like this, it looks like the Irish really are lucky.
