I always miss Chicago on this day! Where else can you see a river dyed green, skip work to drink green beer with thousands of people wearing green, and celebrate with a big parade even though you aren't Irish.
To all my Chicago friends, a special
Happy St. Patrick's Day to you!

For those of you unfamiliar with the tradition of dying the Chicago River neon green, I posted a video two years ago here.
