1. Rock out to bagpipes
To see some of Chicago’s finest strut their stuff, check out Chicago’s very own Bagpipes & Drums of the Emerald Society, aka Cops in Kilts: their site lists performances all over the city from March 12 through St Paddy’s Day proper. Originally started back in the 1970s to honor policemen killed in the line of duty, this organization now boasts impressive bagpipe performances, in addition to remembrance activities. Their main draw is really all in the name: COPS IN KILTS, Y’ALL.
