Sweep away the green confetti because St. Paddy’s Day is over. After what’s been an action-packed two weeks, the city has cooled down— LITERALLY. Temperatures dropped   from highs of damn near 70 degrees last week to the 30s and 40s for this weekend, and the Chicago scene is looking a bit more mellow. 

But there are always things to do in our city! Here are some things you can get into this weekend.
