We’re really starting to get our Irish up now. After last weekend’s St. Practice Day pub crawl (hiccup), this weekend provides a more formal affair as we get greener for St. Patrick’s Day. The 34th annual Forever Green Party is a yearly gala that benefits the Maeve McNicholas Memorial Foundation and AAction Autism. The party 5-10 p.m. Friday at Navy Pier’s Grand Ballroom is sponsored by the Young Irish Fellowship Club of Chicago, but you don’t have to be young or even Irish to attend. Just seek the fellowship. Tickets are $40 in advance / $45 at door (includes beer, wine and non-alcoholic drinks), or spring for VIP access for $60 in advance / $65 at door (includes liquor bar: Michael Collins Irish Whiskey, vodka, rum, beer, wine and non-alcoholic drinks, private balcony).
