Fado Irish Pub in River North continues its tradition this March of delivering Chicagoan’s, the definitive 2014 Paddy’s Day celebration with traditional Irish food, charity fundraisers, live music, themed events, bagpipers, and, of course, Guinness and fantastic Irish whiskey
Every aspect of the St. Patrick’s Day festivities, which last all month-long, are focused on providing an over-the-top - yet authentic - Irish experience. European sports are featured, including 6 Nations Rugby, English Premier League, as well as special whiskey dinner, live music, Pub Quiz and more. “Party like a Paddy” never sounded more right.
Fadó, the best St Patrick’s Day party in the River North neighborhood, is a St Patrick’s Day institution and the staff and management at the pub invite you to “commit yourself” to a day of unequaled partying.
