Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at Tortoise Supper Club
Chicago is a city that loves tradition – especially one that centers on celebration! One of the Windy City’s liveliest traditions is the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Whether you’re heading downtown to participate in the festivities or you just want to catch a glimpse of the Chicago River dyed green, Tortoise Supper Club (TSC) is the perfect destination for a post-parade bite and beverage.
Ideally situated next to the Chicago River on State St., TSC is owned by two lifelong Chicagoans whose love and appreciation for this city run deep. The restaurant’s décor is punctuated with pieces of Chicago history and family heirlooms from owners Keene and Megan Addington. Each piece of memorabilia tells a story, whether derived from the Addington’s own family archives, or a colorful character's fascinating Chicago connection.
This Saturday, March 11th TSC will be opening its doors early (at 12:00 noon) in honor of the holiday. Guests can enjoy Corned Beef Sandwiches served with Rosemary Frites ($12,) Beef Barley Soup made with Irish Stout, Pearl Onions and Bacon ($6.95,) and Guinness Cans ($7.)
These St. Patrick’s Day specials will also be available on Saturday, March 17th.
