Still having trouble with the St. Patrick’s day event.  Turns out it wasn’t yesterday-Duh! It is today.  Guess how I figured it out?  I drove A. to COSI, an awesome science museum in Chicago and there were policemen and barriers along Broad St.  But that didn’t seal it until I got near COSI and people were beginning to line the street with chairs and green shirts on!  Revelation!  It turned out great because many people inside left around 11:30 to take their place along the parade route outside the museum.  So it was a pretty empty space after noon. 

Another thing I discovered.  If you live and grocery shop near a college campus, a great time to shop is on St. Patrick’s Day.  Either they are still at the bars or they’re too wiped out to shop.  Giant Eagle was nearly empty!!
