The best St. Patrick's Day events
It's not easy being green, but Charm'd, the St. Patrick's Day pop-up bar at Deuce's and The Diamond Club, pulls it off in style. The shamrock-covered concept was produced by Smartmouth Designs, the same team that brought the Santa Baby pop-up to Wrigleyville during the holiday season. Similar to Santa Baby, Charm'd has several different themed areas for guests to enjoy.
