Thirsty Thursday: Chicago’s Green River Recipe & Guide for St Pat’s Day
Recipe: Chicago-Green River
- Take 1 large green river such as the Chicago River.
- Use 2 boats to dump 40 lbs of eco-friendly ORANGE dye into the river.
- Use 1 extra boat with necessary attachment to churn all the powder into your river.
- River turns green once all orange dye is blended into the water.
- Green color can last up to 3 days with luck-of-the-Irish weather, longer dependent on the number of green beers you have consumed.
- Use recipe at your own risk, or simply watch the pros use their own secret recipe like they have every March 17th since 1962!
- Green Dyeing starts at 9am on the Chicago River on March 17th, 2019 at 9am
- Stand on the East Side of Michigan Avenue Bridge or find a spot on the Riverwalk!
