St. Patrick’s Day treats for travelers

Airports and airlines will be joining in on the St. Patrick’s Day festivities.

In Chicago, concessionaires at O’Hare and Midway International Airports will offer St. Patrick’s Day specials for travelers on Friday, March 16 and Saturday, March 17.

At O’Hare there will be green beer – on Saturday only – at all 23 HMSHost locations that sell tap beer, including Chili’s, Macaroni Grill (Terminal 3), Tuscany Café (Terminal 1) and the Prairie Tap (Terminal 3).

Green tea will be on tap all weekend at Argo Tea (Terminals 2 and 3).

The O’Hare Bar & Grill (Terminal 2) will be serving corned beef and cabbage and, over at Vosges Haut-Chocolat (Terminals 2 and 3), you’ll find Guinness Truffles.

At Midway Airport, the St. Patrick’s Day line up includes corned beef sandwiches throughout the weekend at Gold Coast Dogs, Manny’s Express, Miller’s and Oak St. Beach Café, and corned beef dinners at Harry Caray’s and Manny’s.  Harry Caray’s, Miller’s and Oak St. Beach will also pour green beer through Saturday.

At both airports, all McDonald’s locations will offer Shamrock shakes and Nuts on Clark will feature green popcorn.

Not going through Chicago?

Economy cabin passengers flying on Delta Air Lines between New York and Los Angeles, and between New York and San Francisco on March 16 will receive complimentary headsets and a cocktail, while those flying the BusinessElite cabin will get a “lucky chance” to win a set of round trip tickets to Ireland.
