Mayne Stage Held an Incredibly Civil St. Patrick’s Day Event

Listening to Celtic tunes performed by Switchback, the Rogers Park event was notable for a respectful crowd and a refreshing absence of excessive drinking.

Our search for a St. Pat’s-themed Seen on the Scene turned up plenty of similar options: pub crawls, package deals, and all-day boozefests.

While we love our green Miller Lites as much as the next Chicagoan, we opted instead to swing by Mayne Stage, a century-old former silent screen Nickelodeon in Rogers Park, to take in a set of live Celtic tunes courtesy of the internationally renowned duo Switchback (and a plateful of corned beef and cabbage for good measure).
