Kick off your day with some green. The Chicago River is dyed green every year on St. Paddy’s Day. This tradition has endured for over 50 years and is one of the most famous events around the world for this holiday. Our Alta at K Station Apartments are in the center of it all. Find yourself in the perfect location to make it to the dyeing in less than 10 minutes! Before you head over, don’t forget Breakfast Before You Booze, our tasty resident event. We’re providing the sustenance you’ll need for a day full of green beer. Find breakfast in the east and west lobbies between 7 am and 9 am.
Let’s start celebrating Irish style! Purchase your tickets for the St Patrick's Day River North Early Bar Crawl online. Head over to Trophy Room between 5pm-9pm today or tomorrow at Pearl Brasserie between 8 am-10 am to pick up your wristbands. You’ll drink from 8 am-2 pm and regroup for an after party that night. You also have a chance to win some prizes:
If you’re looking for a healthier route, participate in the St. Paddy’s Day 5k and 8k Run/Walk. This year is special with the 17th annual run happening on the 17th. This event encourages you to get in the spirit by giving an award to the best-dressed.
Last but certainly not least is our beloved NOLA. Parades already kicked off last weekend, and there’s more to come. As with other parties in New Orleans, they’re unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. You’ll catch some groceries if you’re close enough, as float riders throw cabbages, potatoes, onions, carrots, and other foods traditionally used to make Irish stew. Yell “Kiss me, I’m Irish!” to the rowdy marching clubs strolling by, but don’t be surprised when you actually get a fat kiss along with some beads and a rose or carnation.
The Georgian is within walking or streetcar distance to wherever you want to go in the Uptown area. Pop by Tracey’s for their kick-off party on Saturday. Then make your way to the Irish Channel Parade on Magazine St. This party is the largest and most heavily attended in New Orleans.
Wherever you spend this St. Patrick’s Day, we wish you a happy and safe one. Send us your photos and stories on our social media sites. We loving seeing our residents living their best lives!
