You know, when you’re so hungry and angry at the same time that you can’t think straight.
Heading to Chicago next weekend for St. Patrick’s Day? Yeah, so is everyone else.
It’s going to be absolute chaos, and I mean that in the best way possible. If you live in the city, you probably have friends coming in town. And, whether you’re a local or visiting, you probably couldn’t be more excited to run around the city with your friends like a bunch of drunk leprechauns. That is, until you’re insanely hungover the next day.
Whatever you did the day, or even night, before; you’re probably going to resort to desperate measures to cure your hangover — and you’re probably going to be hangry while doing so.
Maybe you want some greasy food, or maybe you just want to keep drinking. But, when it comes to the ultimate cure for your St. Patrick’s Day hangover, all arrows point to getting brunch. But, just like the chaos of the parade and Chicago Riverwalk, every brunch spot in the city is going to be slammed with long waits.
As an avid restaurant goer, I can say that the best brunch spots to go to on a busy weekend like St. Patrick’s Day are the ones where the host can text you a web link of your position in line using their wait list app. Not only do you not have to fight for a spot at the bar, but you’re able to explore the city until your table is ready and you receive that magical text notification (because, let’s face it, you’re probably going to be waiting at least an hour).
Having that “text-when-ready” option opens up endless possibilities of things to do while you try to distract yourself from the fact that you’re incredibly hangry. We all know how that is: It’s hard to focus on anything except for how hungry you are at that moment. Why add on unnecessary stress when you can explore the Riverwalk, visit nearby bars and more while you’re waiting to get seated?
