CHICAGO (WLS) -- Time now for Festival Friday and we'll start with some Irish parties!
Celebrate St. Patrick's Day Saturday at the Forge in Lemont! They'll have Irish music - including bagpipes, plus dance performances and workshops! General admission is free, but reservations are required.
Check out the many Irish pop-up bars in the city, including Charm'd in Wrigleyville! You'll be surrounded by wall to wall decorations, with over-the-top themed drinks and magically delicious pub grub!
Time to take your pups on a field trip! Sunday is the next Dog Admission Day at the Morton Arboretum. You'll need a reservation.
A new outdoor art exhibit opens Sunday in the West Ridge neighborhood. Tuk Tuks are three-wheeled, short distanced electrical vehicles that originated in Thailand. Ten sculptures will line Devon Avenue from Sacramento to Bell, all designed by Chicago artists. Limited rides will be offered opening day.
And the 20th anniversary production of the Tony Award-winning musical Avenue Q is in town at the North Shore Center for Performing Arts. Twenty years ago this "Sesame Street" for adults was considered pretty edgy. It's still a little bawdy, but a clever and very sweet coming of age story with people and puppets performing side by side. It runs through April 2.
