Wearing shamrocks has become a St. Patrick’s Day tradition, much like consuming dyed-green beverages or pinching a leprechaun to cure its hiccups.

During the Paddy’s Day Party, guests indulge in an endless spread of Emerald Isle staples and libations while sating aural appetites with a spirited set from Irish folksters One of the Girls. The collective channels famed Celtic singer-songwriters such as Tommy Makem as it laces three-part harmonies and sprightly strumming with twinges of traditional accordion, banjo, mandolin, and standup bass. Audiences can chomp in rhythm on unlimited corned beef, cabbage, and irish soda bread. Complementing the buffet is an open bar stocked with bottomless streams of Bushmills Irish whiskey, Baileys Irish Cream, and dyed-green domestic beers. Expert beat weaver DJ-X spins two sets throughout the soiree, filling potential crowd-wide silences with mash-ups of recognizable radio singles and various genres from house to rock to electro.
Bacardi at the Park, a pregame hot spot for White Sox fans, spoils sports aficionados with more than 65 flat-screen televisions. Attendees can also wander through the venue to gaze at wall-to-wall baseball memorabilia, including a T-Rex skull unearthed from beneath the pitcher’s mound.
