Once upon a time, we celebrated in a city where they turn the river green, have a parade that is hours long, and a college graduation with tents, champagne, and fancy, fancy parties. It was St. Patrick’s Day. The city was Chicago. It seemed as if the entire city was celebrating. (And here’s a link to 2018 St. Patrick’s Day celebration in Chicago.) Literally, the Chicago River is dyed green!
We were there for a college graduation; my brother was graduating from the University of Chicago. Fast forward a couple of decades, and he’s now back in the Chicago area. A pizza lover. A Giordano’s pizza lover. And we have made many other trips: wedding, graduation, and football games.
