Weekend Happenings March 18 – 20th

The sun is setting after 6 pm, patio season is right around the corner, and Chicagoans are ready to say “see ya later” to winter. This Sunday is officially the first day of spring! We have gathered a list of some of the best happenings in Wrigleyville and Lakeview East this weekend.  

Get Charm’d at Deuce’s all Weeklong Long

St. Patrick’s Day may have been Thursday, but Deuce’s MLB Bar (3505 N Clark St) is celebrating all week long. Our Clark Street home base for baseball games has temporarily transformed into a leprechaun’s playpen, with floor to ceiling decorations and limited edition drinks. Try the Irish Maid cocktail with Jameson, Black Barrel, Cucumber, St. Germain, simple syrup, and lemon juice. Feeling like celebrating with Baileys? The Bailey’s Mint Martini is topped with whipped cream and chocolate shavings. No matter what you get, you’ll be sure to feel the luck in the air at Charm’d.
