Ready to wear some green and have lots of fun? Then join Naturally Chicago for its 2nd annual members-only St. Patrick's Celebration on Thursday, March 16, starting at 5 p.m. central! We'll be back at Pappy's Bar, located in the offices of SRW Agency at 660 West Randolph St. in Chicago's West Loop — the site of our 1st annual St. Pat's party last year!
We're super-excited that our friends at Kitchfix are catering a sumptuous meal for the occasion. The full menu includes a Gaelic buffet featuring a vegan Irish Stew made with local mushrooms, Corned Beef and Cabbage, Bangers and Gravy, Colcannon, Mustard Roasted Red Potatoes, Sauteed Cabbage and Kale, Irish Soda Bread, House Salad with Caraway Vinaigrette and Ranch, and Guinness Cupcakes with Irish Cream Frosting.
There will also be plated stations with a Mezze Platter (pita chips, olives, crudites, hummus, tzatziki, falafels, dolmas and marinated feta; Crudites and Dips (assorted vegetables, pita chips, roasted garlic hummus, and creamy Ranch dip), and Avocado Oil Fried Potato Chips with French onion dip.
Along with great food, the celebration will feature a bagpiper (this was a big hit at last year's St. Patrick's Party); delicious cocktails — including an Irish Old Fashioned — prepared with cold-pressed juices from Twisted Alchemy, a Natural Chicago sponsor; beer (Guinness, of course, as well as Stella Artois and Coors Light); cider; and hard seltzers. Two local companies, Danie's Natural Juice Blends, and Realsy Snacks, will be sampling their products at the event.
And of course, this will be a great opportunity to make new industry friends and business contacts.
There's even a big screen TV if your plans for March 16 include watching the first round of the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament.
