Happy St. Patrick's Day!
If you plan on or you’re already staying with Churchill Corporate Services in the Chicago area, go ahead and do yourself a favor by checking out the green Chicago River in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. The river was dyed on Saturaday, March 14th, and the green dye will last for about 4 days. However, it is said that, “it is not that big of a change of color when the river is always a murky shade of green.” Either way, you should throw on your finest green wear and head down to the river for some good ol’ Irish fun. The best view of the green river is between Columbus and Wabash. Picture courtesy of Chicago Sun-Times[/caption] Fun fact about the green river: The dye itself is ORANGE! The dye is a vegetable-based dye that is “nontoxic and has been thoroughly tested by independent chemists and has been proven safe for the environment.” Read the story behind the green river here: The Story Behind Dyeing the River by Dan O’Leary (Update: link no longer available) Have a safe and HAPPY St. Patrick’s Day!
