Get Lucky: DJ Gow channels the luck o' the Irish tonight at 9:30 p.m. at Molly's Lounge (816 Geyer Avenue). But don't drop the Chocolate Ecstasy while you're there that would just be a waste of a perfectly good specialty drink.
The Sun Times: The past and the present collide when the theater department of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign presents a staged reading of Tennessee Williams' premiere full-length play, Candles to the Sun, at the same place it was first staged 70 years ago. Drop by what is now the Learning Center (4504 Westminster Place) at 8 p.m. with $10 in hand.
A Leprechaun Says What? With so many green goings-on today, we thought we'd point out the one with Jell-O shots. The Feisty Bulldog (720 North First Street) is serving these puppies up along with green beer, and DJ Labs plays all Irish music, all the time (well, starting at 9 p.m.); the celebrations begin at 11 a.m.
It's Too Dark for Anyone to See You're Not Wearing Green: Still not feeling Irish enough today? Stop by O'Connell's Pub for a burger and a pint of Guinness.
Easy Cheesy: Damn, the macaroni and cheese at Noodles & Company (four area locations) is perfectly al dente, supremely cheesy, deliciously comforting just right for lunch today.
