March 17: Irish breakfast
You know spring is close in Chicago once the streets (and rivers) start to run green with beer. Get appropriately fueled up at O’Shaughnessy’s massive Irish breakfast, which is basically a food bomb of bacon, bangers, eggs, black and white pudding, baked beans, and white toast. If this doesn’t prepare you for the madness ahead, some other breakfast probably will (but it won't be as good!).
