March can be a crazy month—from March Madness, to welcoming spring, and then of course, St. Patrick’s Day, there is a lot going on! With St. Patrick’s Day being one of the more rowdy celebrations in the city, it’s important to know what’s happening around town.
We have compiled a guide for all of you procrastinators, who need help finding places to brunch, drink green beer, and celebrate the patron saint of Ireland!
Kanela Breakfast Club
In celebration of St. Patrick, Kanela Breakfast Club is offering complimentary Loukoumades (i.e. Greek doughnuts with lemon honey syrup and walnuts) if you come in wearing green. Since we’re all wearing green so we don’t get pinched anyway, we may as well benefit from donning the color! Plus, this brunch is Bitch-approved!

Nothing like some corned beef hash, bacon, and beer to really make you feel Irish for a day, right? Steakbar on Wells Street is offering $25 tickets that include four drink tickets, and a tricked out breakfast buffet. Tickets are still available, but just a few! For more information, click here.
What’s more fun than an arcade with a massive breakfast buffet? Nothing, we say! Replay in Lincoln Park will be hosting a huge party that will make your friends green with envy.
