St. Patrick's Day Scavenger Hunt
Looking for an adventure? This St. Patrick's Day Scavenger Hunt is a great way to go hunting for gold. Last year, Liam’s legendary gold treasure was stolen by some naughty leprechauns. Thankfully, many helpful treasure hunters banded together to find and recover it. To get back at Liam, the leprechauns that were arrested last year teamed up with a twisted Irish banshee who cast a spell on Liam, causing him to forget the location of his enchanted Golden Pickaxe!

Ready to celebrate St. Patty’s Day any day of the year?

We recommend the legendary NY Style Corned Beef at Augustino’s Rock & Roll Deli (Carol Stream and West Chicago locations): cooked in-house, trimmed, steamed, sliced thin and piled high on your choice of onion roll or classic rye bread. Even available in a gluten-free option. Stop in for the full memorabilia experience or order online for pickup.  

Another excellent choice is the Rueben at ANYWAY’S Pub (Oakbrook Terrace and Bloomingdale locations): piled high with melted swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and thousand island dressing served on grilled marble rye bread. Covered, heated patio and porch dining available!
